JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd. has successfully completed its project connection plan for 2013, reaching approximately 213 MW worth of solar PV projects connected to the grid, as of the fourth quarter.
According to JinkoSolar, four of its solar PV projects totaling 80 MW in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region have recently been connected to the national grid – reaching the company's 2013 project connection plan of 213 MW worth of solar PV projects to the grid.
Overall, JinkoSolar expects the projects to reduce CO2 emissions by 256,000 tons annually, saving about 110,000 tons of standard coal per year.
"We will continue to expand our downstream business and aim to reach an aggregate amount of more than 500 MW worth of projects by the end of 2014, representing an annual power generation capacity of 750 million kWh," says Xiande Li, chairman of JinkoSolar.
"With the clear commitment of the Chinese government to renewable energy – solar energy in particular – and a gradually maturing market, we are eager to generate more green energy, as well as good returns for our investors," he concludes.
