JinkoSolar strikes double deal for 24.5 MWp solar projects in New Mexico


Vertically integrated Chinese solar firm JinkoSolar has announced today that is has struck a double supply deal with Spanish clean energy EPC Gransolar for two large-scale solar farms in New Mexico.

JinkoSolar has finalized the shipment of 80,075 of its high-efficiency polycrystalline modules for the two projects, which combined total 24.5 MWp.

The larger of the two projects, a 10.5 MWac solar farm located west of Albuquergue in Bernalillo, is called the PNM Santolina Solar Energy Center, and will be managed by the Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM).

The smaller, 9.5 MWac PNM Santa Fe County Solar Energy Center is located in state capital, Santa Fe, and will also be managed by PNM.

JinkoSolar U.S. general manager Nigel Cockroft remarked that the company is thrilled to have entered the growing New Mexico market. "The expansion of our partnership with Gransolar in the U.S. is an example of JinkoSolar’s strong global presence, and our company’s dedication to our customers around the world."

In 2015, JinkoSolar posted total module shipments of 4.51 GW, with the fourth and final quarter breaking all records as shipments topped 1.71 GW. These volumes cemented the firm’s third-place standing in terms of global market share for modules, and represented a 53.3% increase on 2014’s performance.

The company has set its sights on developing more projects and partnerships in the soaring U.S. solar market, and recently partnered with GreenSky to offer a competitive loan program to U.S. homeowners hoping to adopt solar power.
