Yingli Green Energy Holding Co. Ltd. will supply its 72-cell photovoltaic modules for the 24 MW Pavana solar park to be built in Choluteca, Honduras.
The project, owned by Energia Basica SA, has broken ground. U.S.-based Sybac Solar will provide engineering, procurement and construction services.
Yingli will deliver nearly 80,000 of its large-format modules to the project site from October through November, and interconnection is expected to take place during the first quarter of 2015. The Pavana solar park is expected to generate approximately 40 GWh of electricity per year.
‘Thanks to a robust regulatory framework for renewable energy that includes net-energy metering, a feed-in tariff and tax incentives, Honduras is one of the highest potential solar PV markets in Central America,’ says Jeffrey Barnett, vice president of international sales of Yingli Green Energy Americas.
