Trina Solar Developing 300 MW Distributed Solar PV Project In Anhui Province, China

The noted solar energy firm Trina Solar will be developing up to 300 megawatts (MW) of new distributed solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity in the Chinese province of Anhui, according to recent reports.

The specific location of the new capacity/project will be in the vicinity of Hefei City, in the Xinzhan General Pilot Zone. The project’s first phase will be composed of 30 MW of new commercial rooftop PV capacity — with this phase expected to begin construction in quarter 2 of 2015. Once complete, this installation will be one of the biggest commercial solar PV rooftop arrays in China.

The specific area of development — the Xinzhan General Pilot Zone — is already home to much of Hefei’s solar PV industry development, which is already fairly substantial.

The administrative committee in the area is reportedly set to help Trina Solar to gain government support — potentially leading to further development.

“This partnership is a strong strategic fit and marks the first significant step in our journey to build on our DG (direct generation) solar power business this year,” stated Trina Chairman + CEO Jifan Gao. “China’s ongoing efforts to promote clean energy with supportive policies and reinforcement of the DG solar power projects development have resulted in increasing awareness and recognition in the market for DG solar power projects.”

According to Gao, the new development(s) will help Trina Solar achieve its goal of substantial expansion into the solar direct DG

Gao added that the project would help position Trina well in the growing DG solar sector and expressed confidence that the company could deliver on its goal of expanding its footprint in the DG sector.
