JinkoSolar will supply 126 MW of solar modules for the expansion of an existing 160 MW solar PV park in Chile.
The existing PV plant has been in operation since 2016 and has already installed 668.160 JinkoSolar panels that generate 400 GWh annually. The expansion will add another 315.900 JinkoSolar bifacial modules.
When the expansion is complete and operations begin, the PV plant will have a total of 984.060 photovoltaic JinkoSolar panels consisting of both monofacial and bifacial modules capable of producing 789 GWh per year.
“This is the second project in Latin America to be equipped with our bifacial modules with transparent backsheets. Chile is the largest market for utility scale projects in the region and we are continuously working to promote our high-quality modules there in order to support the development of renewable energy. The expansion of the PV plant equipped with our bifacial modules has already generated lower LCOE and is able to compete with traditional sources of energy. We are expecting to sell more bifacial modules in the coming few months across the region.”Alberto Cuter, general manager LATAM of JinkoSolar.
