The US subsidiary of China-based Silicon Module Super League (SMSL) member JinkoSolar has entered into a three-year agreement to supply 1.43GW of high-efficiency modules to the developer sPower.
To-date, JinkoSolar has supplied more than 800MW, made up of roughly 2.5 million solar panels, to sPower's PV projects. In a statement, JinkoSolar said the agreement includes significant down payments, which will help the company expand manufacturing capacity in both the US and Asia.
"We have had a strong track record of success with JinkoSolar's high-quality and reliable modules, which is why we have signed another deal," said Ryan Creamer, CEO of sPower. "JinkoSolar's technology roadmap and cost leadership are also strong enablers for our future projects, and we look forward to maintaining our strong partnership."
Gener Miao, JinkoSolar vice president of sales & marketing, said: "We value the opportunity to grow our business with a visionary like sPower. JinkoSolar has been investing heavily in advanced solar technologies, and these efforts have yielded major benefits."
JinkoSolar recently set further records by establishing new P-type and N-type PV module power ratings ahead of the largest annual industry exhibition, SNEC in Shanghai, China.
Private investment firm Fir Tree Partners sold sPower to an AES and AIMCo joint venture back in August last year.
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.
