JinkoSolar Holding has supplied 95MW of its monocrystalline solar panels to Vena Energy Australia, an independent power producer with shareholders including Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) and China Investment Corp., (CIC), for use in the Tailem Bend Solar Project.
The installation, located in Adelaide, Australia, was connected to the grid earlier this year and began generating power in February 2019. The site is expected to meet the electrical needs of 40,000 homes by generating 200,000 MWh of renewable energy annually.
JinkoSolar's Cheetah technology and half-cell module configuration will provide the Tailem Bend site with a major boost in power generation, while at a much lower price.
Ms. Anita Li, General Manager of ROA, said: “We are honored to have been chosen by Vena Energy Australia to supply solar panels for this project. JinkoSolar's panels generate competitively priced energy, offer high levels of reliability and are proven to generate power consistently over the long-term.
“Supported by our industry-leading technology and quality, the panels installed at the Tailem Bend Solar Project are expected to generate power efficiently for a quarter century or more.”
Anil Nangia, managing director of Vena Energy, added: “JinkoSolar's technology, performance, and reliability made them the ideal partner for this project. Their mature and proven technologies were developed with grid parity in mind and can be reliably integrated into their GW-level manufacturing capabilities. We look forward to deepening our relationship with JinkoSolar and working with them on more projects in the future.”
