Approved by the Ningxia Autonomous Region Development and Reform Commission, the 10MW system is powered by over 37,000 Suntech panels and is estimated to dislocate 20,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.

Longsheng Li, Deputy General Manager of CECIC commented, ”We believe that plentiful, large-scale solar resources, powered by Suntech’s premium quality solar systems and system integration capabilities, can deliver decades of clean, renewable electricity throughout many regions in China. We will continue to actively promote the adoption of large-scale solar PV projects and solutions for reducing carbon emissions and solving problems associated with climate change.”

Suntech and CECIC plan to focus on the development of large-scale on-grid solar projects and urban building integrated PV projects. Throughout these projects, CECIC will be primarily responsible for project investment and solar project development and Suntech will supply the solar products, system design, installation and technical support.
