JinkoSolar has provided PV modules for a 5.75MW solar project, the company has announced. The project is located on a formerly idle landfill site in Canton, Massachusetts, 15 acres in size, and has been developed in collaboration with Southern Sky Renewable Energy (SSRE). The site is part of an abandoned industrial site known as ‘brownfields’ and JinksoSolar has been working on the design and development of the PV project with ISM Solar Solutions and SSRE. The US$25 million PV plant will be equipped with 19,844 JinkoSolar modules and is expected to be completed later this year.
“Redevelopment projects like this bring a multitude of benefits to local communities, in addition to the inherent advantages of clean, renewable power generation,” Arturo Herrero, chief marketing officer at JinkoSolar, explained. “As a global company with a vested interest in the communities where we do business, we strive to partake in sustainable solutions that are economically – and environmentally – viable in the long run. We are proud to be a part of this project in partnership with SSRE because it sets the stage for a new era of vitality in Canton.”
