Shangrao, China /PRNewswire/ - JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE:JKS), one of the largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the world, today announced that it will supply 126 MW of solar modules for the expansion of an existing 160 MW solar PV park in Chile.
The local contractor recently announced the 126 MW expansion of an existing 160 MW PV park located in the Antofagasta Region. The existing PV plant has been in operation since 2016 and already has 668,160 JinkoSolar panels installed which generate 400 GWh per year. The expansion will add an additional 315,900 JinkoSolar bifacial modules.
Once the expansion is complete and begins operations, the PV plant will have a total of 984,060 JinkoSolar photovoltaic panels consisting of both monofacial and bifacial modules that are able to generate 789 GWh per year.
"This is the second project in Latin America to be equipped with our bifacial modules with transparent backsheets," commented Mr. Alberto Cuter, General Manager LATAM of JinkoSolar. "Chile is the largest market for utility scale projects in the region and we are continuously working to promote our high-quality modules there in order to support the development of renewable energy. The expansion of the PV plant equipped with our bifacial modules has already generated lower LCOE and is able to compete with traditional sources of energy. We are expecting to sell more bifacial modules in the coming few months across the region."
