Silicon Module Super League (SMSL) member JinkoSolar has supplied 132MW of PV modules to Swinerton Renewable Energy (SRE) for the construction of the Techren Solar 1 Project in Boulder City, Nevada.
SRE is providing the EPC services to Clēnera's project that will use more than 350,000 of Jinko's 1500V mono-PERC modules at the project in the Eldorado Valley Energy Zone, 25 miles southeast of Las Vegas.
The PV system will provide power to the Nevada Power Corporation under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA).
"We are pleased to be working with both Swinerton and Clēnera on another sizeable project," said Nigel Cockroft, general manager of JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc. "It has always been our mission to be recognized as the most reliable module supplier in the US, and it is due to our commitment to delivering reliable products and exceptional customer service that industry leaders like Swinerton and Clēnera continue to be long-term partners."
"Reliability has always been a key factor when selecting EPC's and suppliers," said Michael Gallego, VP of Operations at Clēnera. "It is particularly important with larger projects like Techren 1 that we select partners who are dependable and consistent in their work; Swinerton and JinkoSolar encompass both of these traits."
JinkoSolar is expecting to lower its capital expenditure (capex) in 2019 after almost tripling in-house capacity (ingot/wafer, cell and module), since 2015.
It also reported record PV module shipments in the third quarter of 2018, while slightly lowering the high-end of full-year shipment guidance.
Solar Media’s Energy Storage Summit Americas has arrived in Fort Lauderdale to provide a platform for this next step in renewable energy industry. The energy storage market and development brings as many challenges as it does advancements, with a myriad of technologies, capacities, functions, and lifespans. With most projects still in development and technologies with sparse track records, knowledge in this fledgling industry is invaluable. Investors, utilities, consumers, and all renewable energy participants have to not only understand the market, but be able comfortable enough to make the right investment in energy storage to not be left behind the curve. Our event is the platform for companies to bridge the gap between “future energy storage plans” and “installed energy storage”. Join us to discuss the latest news on standardization, comparing battery technologies, financing projects in different markets, resilient microgrids, and storage use for emergency response and aid, among many others. We will not only to educate and familiarize attendees on the capabilities and benefits of energy storage, but make the connections, and introductions, to accelerate energy storage development in North, Central, and South America.
