The first 60MW project, Lalackama PV plant, will consist of 197,000 JinkoSolar high-efficiency modules.

Once completed, the project would generate about 132 millions of kWh of electricity per year.

Located in the Municipality of Diego De Almagro, the second project will have 40MW capacity of modules and is expected to generate about 88 millions of kWh of electricity power annually.

JinkoSolar director sales Alberto Cuter said with the signing of the new contracts the company has enhanced its supply of PV modules in Chile.

"The increase in demand for renewable energy has turned Chile into one of the principal solar markets, and by signing those contracts, we are continuing our strategy to diversify into emerging markets," Cuter added.

"We now have the largest market share in Chile, marking a new milestone for JinkoSolar. Our expanding presence in Chile’s renewable energy market demonstrates our commitment to the development of clean energy in Latin America."
