Xinyi Solar Completes Connection Of 150 MW Project To Grid

Xinyi Solar — a solar photovoltaic glass manufacturer based in China — has finished connecting a 150 MW ground-mounted solar project in Anhui, China, to the electrical grid there, according to recent reports.

The project entered the construction phase back in late April and was finished towards the end of August, before entering the beginning phases of operation.


“We are pleased that the solar farm in Jinzhai County, Anhui Province has joined the power grid and started generating electricity. Together with two solar farms in Wuhu, Anhui and Nanping, Fujian, the Group expects that ground-mounted solar farms generating around 280 MW of electricity will be completed by the end of 2014,” stated Xinyi Solar chairman Lee Yin Yee. “As for the solar power distribution program, the group is installing roof-top solar power panel systems in Wuhu and Anhui factories with a capacity of around 33.1 MW.

“The Group is continuing to evaluate and develop solar farm for both ground-mounted and distribution generation system in order to further develop downstream operations, create synergies with upstream operations and ultimately generate more profit for the Group,” he concluded.

For a bit of background — Xinyi Solar is one of the largest solar PV glass manufacturers in the world. The company, amongst other things now, produces ultra-clear photovoltaic raw glass and ultra-clear photovoltaic processed glass. The company supplies products to major solar product component manufactures both domestically and internationally. While the recent move towards large-scale solar PV projects may simply be a feeling-out process, it could also be the start of considerable changes for the company. Keep an eye on this one.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
