30-MW and 20-MW Solar Power Projects for China (in Xinjiang Region)

As just noted the other day, China has upped its solar power goals again. Here’s one big solar power project that will help it get to its new goal of 21 GW of solar by 2015:

“The government of Bole city, Bortala Mongol Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang, China recently signed an agreement with Hubei-based JCS Solar for a 6 billion yuan (US$948 million) photovoltaic project to be located next to the area’s Sayram Lake,” Liu Yuanyuan writes. “Construction of the 13 million square-meter facility is expected to take three years. Phase I of the project is expected to yield 30-MW of capacity and connect to the grid when completed by the end of October 2012.”


And here’s another, also from Yuanyuan (via Renewable Energy World):

“Datang Xinjiang Power Generation Company received approvals in May for the construction of two projects, the 20-MW Hami Phase I solar power project and the 20-MW Bohu, Bazhou Phase I solar power project from the Development and Reform Commission of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. Phase I of the Hami project received an investment of 267 million yuan (US$41.9 million), and Phase I of the Bohu, Bazhou project attracted an investment of 251 million yuan (US$39.4 million).”

I presume a lot more projects like these are in the works, and imagine we’ll be seeing more such announcements in the months to come.
