JinkoSolar has supplied its high-efficiency modules to Grupotec to power two solar plants in Kenya. The two projects have a total power of 98 MWp and consist of over 290,000 modules, with Grupotec completing construction of the plants, Radiant and Eldosol, near the city of Eldoret in the north west of the country. The plants occupy some 600 acres of land and will generate sufficient power to supply over 250,000 households, while reducing CO2 emissions by an annual 106,000 tons.
“We are proud that JinkoSolar’s technology and products are helping Africa to tap into green energy. Our company is currently installing similar solar plants in other African countries and we are always willing to train locals on installation and operation and maintenance to make it easier for each country to undertake similar projects in the future,” commented Gener Miao, the company’s CMO.
