JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd., a global enterprise in the solar PV industry, announced on October 4th that it has entered into an agreement with Lightsource Renewable Energy, the UK's largest solar energy generator and asset operator, to supply 18.5MWp of solar PV modules for a solar farm project located in the United Kingdom.
"Lightsource is the UK's largest generator of solar power and we are pleased to have the opportunity to cooperate with them on this solar farm project. It further extends our presence and brand recognition in the local market," commented Mr. Xiande Li, Chairman of JinkoSolar. "We look forward to working closely with Lightsource and share our mutual vision of a green low-carbon future."
Mrs. Kareen Boutonnat, Managing Director for Lightsource Renewable Energy commented, "As the UK's largest developer and operator of large scale solar farms, we have to ensure that our supply chain remains intact as our business expands. During the early stages of anti-dumping uncertainty, we expect to work closely with our suppliers to put in place orders that would secure the development of our projects. We are pleased to be working with JinkoSolar to meet the UK's renewable energy targets, and hope this partnership will continue into the future."
"The recent progress of the global green energy economy has been astonishing. The UK's demand for solar PV has been notable as well. This means more jobs, more business opportunities and more international investment. It is a very exciting time for solar PV industry in the UK and deals like this with JinkoSolar, and it will further progress the UK's vision to take energy generation into its own hands," Kareen added.
