China-based solar energy company and photovoltaic (PV) manufacturer, Yingli Green Energy signed an agreement to supply 170MW of solar panels to CFC Group Construction for utility-scale solar PV power projects in Hebei province of China.


Under the terms of the agreement, Yingli Green Energy subsidiary Yingli Energy will be responsible for the supply of over 650,000 multicrystalline YGE Series solar panels to during the third quarter and fourth quarter of 2015 for the projects.

The panels, which are planned to be installed in power plants located in the city of Zhangjiakou, which can generate more than 200,000 megawatt-hours of clean energy while reducing CO2 emissions of approximately 120,000t.

The projects are being developed as part of the country’s plan to provide clean solar power for a green, low-carbon 2022 Winter Olympic Games which is planned to be held in Zhangjiakou.

Earlier, China’s State Council selected Zhangjiakou as the site of the first renewable energy pilot zone in the country.

CFC Construction Chen Jiguang said: "We have partnered with Yingli for these power plants because, as one of the world’s leading solar panel manufacturers, Yingli’s products meet CFC’s demanding product quality requirements."

Recently, Yingli Green Energy subsidiary Yingli Green Energy Americas and solar technology company PWRstation have teamed up to offer rapidly deployable, activation-ready transportable PV solutions.

Under the terms of the deal, the team will bring PWRstation systems including Yingli-energized PWRstation GENESIS system to Americas market.

PWRstation co-founder and CEO Robert Albertella said: "With Yingli’s support, we can change the way communities go solar and increase access to renewable energy."

Yingli Americas managing director Robert Petrina said: "Together, we are expediting and simplifying the deployment of solar power, thereby expanding project opportunities across North, South, Central America and the Caribbean."
