JA Solar has supplied modules for the mountainous photovoltaic power plant project in South Korea, which is built with a capacity of 93 MW and constructed on the ground of an existing 40 MW wind farm.
When the photovoltaic power plant is added, the total installed capacity of the wind-solar hybrid project becomes 133MW.
It is estimated that the entire wind-solar hybrid project will produce 120 million kWh of electricity per year, which will meet the needs of about 30,000 households and bring in 30 billion won annual revenue ( $25 million).
The 93 MW photovoltaic power plant is projected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 56,000 tons per year, which is equivalent to planting 310,000 pine trees.
This project uses the wind farm’s spare land to install a photovoltaic power plant to meet the rising demand for renewable energy from the South Korean market while effectively increasing land utilization. With this innovative implementation of wind and solar power generation, efficiency of the power supply is increased and costs are reduced.
This latest project is part of JA Solar’s ongoing commitment to aggressively pursue creative applications of renewable energy while concentrating on photovoltaic technology growth.
It has supplied modules for projects integrating PV goods with cutting-edge technologies, including Huanghe Hydropower’s 490MW shipment for its ultra-high voltage (UHV) transmission project in Qinghai Province, a 32MW solar-plus-storage project in Hokkaido, and the first bifacial-plus-trackers project in Malaysia.
