JinkoSolar is kicking-off a programme that involves Chinese universities with solar energy and small-scale smart grids for educational purposes.
The 'Dream Grid' Plan was said to have been founded by Tsinghua University's Department of Electronic Engineering in an effort to provide students with a means to give back to society in a socially responsible way.
JinkoSolar is partnering with Tsinghua University to implement the first of the 'Dream Grid' sites in Gonggashan, Kangding County, Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province with the building of a mobile signal tower along with a micro-grid system to provide a basic power supply for Gonggashan center school and Gonggasha Yulong West Village School.
“We're very pleased to be invited as the sole PV facility provider for Tsinghua University's 'Dream Grid' Plan. We're also very happy to bring clean energy to Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture by working together with Tsinghua students,” commented Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar. “We plan on providing domestic universities across China with more extensive experience through project-based platforms such as this as we work to fulfill our social responsibility and cultivate local talent for the greater good. In the future JinkoSolar plans to explore more research development, joint training, and corporate social responsibility plans with universities.”
