Yingli Green has won a contract to supply modules to the Centinela Solar Energy Facility Project in Imperial County, California, which is the company’s largest ever supply deal.
Fluor Corporation is the EPC contractor for the 200MW mega project that was selected by the project owner, Centinela Solar Energy, a member of the power generation and transmission project developer, LS Power Group. The project has a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with San Diego Gas and Electric.
Mathew Sachs, Yingli Americas' Director of Business Development said, “Yingli Americas has methodically established itself as the partner of choice for utility-scale projects across the U.S. By establishing a superior process to address both the commercial and technical hurdles such projects present, we are extremely confident in our ability to execute such mega projects.”
Commercial operation is expected in the middle of 2014.
