WHYALLA, Australia, Jan. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Jinneng Clean Energy Technology Ltd. ("Jinergy" or the "Company"), a China based global leader in PV industry, announced that the company provided 6MW solar panels for the SSE Australia solar farm, the first utility scale solar power plant in Whyalla, South Australia. The farm was officially opened by the Premier of South Australia Jay Weatherill on January 23rd.
Located in Whyalla, the fourth largest city and traditional industrial town in South Australia, the solar power plant indicates that solar industry will be priority for the city. Lyn Breuer, mayor of Whyalla points out that it would be another sign Whyalla was motoring ahead as an industrial powerhouse while being driven by a renewable energy focus.
The solar power plant employs 6MW Jinergy PERC(Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell) monocrystalline solar panels, which could generate more power than regular solar panels with solar cell efficiency over 21.6%. The project is estimated to generate 10GWh electricity each year after grid-connection and will be on service for at least twenty-five years. The solar power plant provides stable clean energy for at least 1,400 homes and reduces carbon emission by 7,500 tons each year.
JINERGY, the leading PV cell and module manufacturer headquartered in Shanxi Province, China, follows technology iteration strategy and has deployed three generations of cutting-edge technology, i.e. polycrystalline, Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell (PERC) monocrystalline and HJT.
By the end of 2017, Jinergy has 1.3GW production capacity in Wenshui manufacture base, and realized mass production of 280W Poly C-Si Modules and 305W PERC Mono C-Si Modules. In 2017, the company also commercialized high efficiency HJT cell & module in Jinzhong manufacture base, and will expand its production capacity to GW scale and reduce the cost to under 0.4 USD/W in three years, bringing breakthroughs to decrease of LCOE.
