JA Solar supplies 480MW of modules to Chile’s largest PV project

By JA Solar

The CEME1 480MW project, the largest PV installation in Chile, has now reached full capacity grid connection, with its contractor, PowerChina Huadong Engineering, deploying high-performance JA Solar modules, underlining the pivotal role of the company’s technology and products in this landmark achievement.

Located in the Atacama desert and spanning approximately 400 hectares, the project represents about one-tenth of Chile’s total installed renewable energy capacity. The environment places exceptionally high demands on the reliability of modules, with JA selected as exclusive supplier due to its superior product reliability and extensive experience in supplying projects in challenging desert environments. The project is forecast to generate an annual one billion kWh of electricity, supplying clean energy to some 400,000 households while eliminating 280,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions.

Aiqing Yang, Executive President at JA Solar, commented: “The CEME1 project marks a significant milestone in our commitment to renewable energy innovation and sustainability. This project not only underscores the exceptional synergy between PowerChina Huadong Engineering and JA Solar, but also sets a new benchmark for large-scale solar initiatives in Chile. We are delighted to have contributed to the local energy transition, providing clean energy to hundreds of thousands of households and significantly reducing carbon emissions. We look forward to continuing our support for local sustainable development, addressing environmental challenges and fostering a greener and more resilient future for communities across Chile and beyond.”
