JinkoSolar Power Co. Ltd. has signed project investment agreements with the government of Hengfeng County in the province of Jiangxi, China, to develop 100 MW of photovoltaic power projects.
Jinko Power will own the projects and will manage the project investment and engineering, procurement and construction activities. It will also provide operations and maintenance services upon completion.
Construction is under way and is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year. The projects are expected to generate approximately 110 million kWh of electricity annually.
‘Our power plant development has traditionally been in northwestern China but is now gradually moving towards China's southern and eastern coasts, resulting in a more balanced geographic mix,’ says Xiande Li, chairman of JinkoSolar. ‘Each year, the development of projects in western China is impacted by the region's severe cold winter. Weather in China's east and south, however, is much more moderate by comparison.’
