PV industry leader JinkoSolar announced that it has supplied 122MW worth of modules to Pattern Energy for its Conejo solar plant in Chile. Pattern Energy, a US-based independent power producer, will also become the owner of the project.

Located in the municipality of Taltal, in the Antofagasta region of northern Chile, the Conejo project is one of the largest PV installations in Chile. The installation has already signed off on a 22-year power purchase agreement with Minera Los Pelambres, an affiliate of Antofagasta Minerals, and will be connected to the Sistema Interconectado Central transmission system.

The installation is expected to be completed in the second half of 2016 and will cover approximately 65% of Los Pelambres' electricity demand.

Gener Miao, vice president – global sales and marketing of JinkoSolar, said: “Our relationship with Pattern Development further strengthens our leading position in this important emerging market. It is another demonstration of our world-class capabilities and service to our international customers. We look forward to leveraging our expertise and working with more solar project industry leaders in the future.”
