Yingli Solar Begins Construction Of 100 Megawatt Top Runner Project In Inner Mongolia

Chinese solar manufacturer Yingli Solar has announced it has begun construction on its second Chinese Top Runner solar project, a 100 MW solar project in Wuhai City, in Inner Mongolia. 

Chinese solar manufacturer Yingli Solar has announced it has begun construction on its second Chinese Top Runner solar project, a 100 megawatt solar project in Wuhai City, in Inner Mongolia.

The Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited, better known as Yingli Solar, or simply Yingli, announced the construction groundbreaking of a 100 MW (megawatt) solar project in Wuhai City, in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The project is Yingli Solar’s second solar project that is categorized under China’s Top Runner program — a program intended to improve energy efficiency measures by improving the quality of solar manufacturing in which China allocates a certain number of projects to be restricted to high-efficiency solar components.

Yingli Solar’s first Top Runner solar project was the 50 MW Datong solar project in the Shanxi province. This second project to be developed in Inner Mongolia will make use of Yingli’s patented PANDA Bifacial panels, which are able to generate solar energy from both the front and rear. The 100 MW project is expected to be completed and grid operational by June 2018.

“We are glad to participate in “Top Runner” program again with our reliable and high efficient products,” explained Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli. “Data shows that, since the grid-connection of the Datong 50 MW Top Runner project, which utilized PANDA Bifacial panels, its monthly energy yield is up to approximately 17% higher than typical multi-crystalline solar plants. We believe that this project will be another sample of Yingli’s efforts in technological innovations to increase the efficiency and reduce the cost of solar power generation.”
