Baoding, China [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited has been selected by SDIC Huajing Power Holding Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of the State Development and Investment Corp. (SDIC), to supply solar photovoltaic (PV) modules for a 10-megawatt (MW) on-grid solar plant in Dunhuang, Gansu Province.
The project, which has been approved by the provincial Development and Reform Commission in Gansu, demonstrates Yingli and the state owned electricty supplier’s commitment to renewable energy goals, according to Weidong Wang, general manager of SDIC Huajing.
“As a leading state owned electricity supplier, we have both the responsibility and opportunity to make renewable energy a reality in China, and we believe this 10 MW project demonstrates our commitment to this goal. Our advantage lies in our ability to leverage our established network of existing traditional power projects and manpower already on the ground in Gansu. We are confident that western regions such as Dunhuang will be big markets for solar power as they receive abundant natural sunlight and local governments are very open to investments by solar companies,” Wang said.
