JinkoSolar selected to supply 1.2 MW to SolaireDirect for a PV project in Chile

By Editor


JinkoSolar announced it has supplied 1.2 MW solar PV modules to SolaireDirect Chile, an Independent Power Producer using solar energy based in Chile.

The project began commercial operations in June 2013.

Located in the high mountainous deserts of Chile’s Fourth Region, the project provides energy to both mining companies and the Chilean spot energy market through the Chilean Central Interconnected System.

This project generates enough energy to meet the requirements of between 1,200 and 1,800 local households, JinkoSolar said. The solar plant is remotely supervised and operated, with regularly scheduled maintenance and inspection by SolaireDirect’s skilled operators.

“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to cooperate with SolaireDirect on this project in Chile. This contract demonstrates to our customers in the region that our high-efficiency modules are well suited for desert conditions in geographically diverse regions such as Chile,” said Xiande Li, chairman of JinkoSolar.

SolaireDirect Chile chose JinkoSolar due to their technological leadership in the global solar PV industry and long-term commitment to sustainable development, said Royal Smith, operations director of SolaireDirect Chile.
