China Gogreen Assets Investment and its subsidiary Beijing Jun Yang Investment Company have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the government of Xuchang to develop 60MW of PV capacity in the city of Xuchang, Henan Province, China.

Under the MoU, the companies will construct several rooftop PV systems in Xuchang with support from the Xuchange government. Specifically, the government will assist the group in obtaining the necessary permits from the local authorities and help the group to apply for the Chinese government’s Golden Sun solar subsidy programme. The Xuchang government will also co-ordinate between the local electricity supply authority and users of the electricity in Xuchang.

The group, meanwhile, will be responsible for building the PV systems as well as the future operation and management of the PV stations.

Construction of the 60MW project will be built in stages with the first phase — involving the installation of 30MW — slated to complete in July 2014. Construction of the rest of the project is expected to complete in December 2015.

When complete, the PV systems will be operated and managed by a local wholly-owned subsidiary of Beijing Jun Yang.

In total, the project will require an investment of around RMB720 million (US$115.3 million). This will be funded by the group’s internal resources and bank loans as well as a subsidy from the Chinese government’s Golden Sun solar programme. The subsidy is expected to be available when construction has commenced.
