Located in the city of Jinchang, the new PV farm, which will be one of the largest independently run plants in Asia, will help support three other thermal power plants in the area.

The 2 RMB billion project will be on-line by June, 2013.

“Jinchang receives large amounts of sunlight and has ample land resources, which make it very suitable for PV power plant development,” said JinkoSolar Chairman Xiande Li.

“We are very pleased to cooperate with Jinchuan Group, a reputed SOE with international competitiveness. We are confident that our cooperation will aid in the development of a green future for the region and a sustainable return on our investment,” he said.
