Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited, the vertically integrated photovoltaic ("PV") module manufacturer in the world, known as "Yingli Solar", expressed on December 13th its congratulations on the successful grid connection of world's largest hydro and PV hybrid project, near the Longyangxia Dam in Qinghai Province, China. The Company has supplied 15 MW YGE series PV modules for the Project.
With a total capacity of 320 MW, the Project began construction in March, 2013 and started grid connection and commissioning last week. During its 25 years lifetime, the Project is expected to deliver 498 million kWh PV electricity per year to the grid.
"In addition to this hydro and PV hybrid project, the Company has also been acting proactively in integrating PV with architecture, agricultural, and other fields. For example, the Power Valley International Hotel – world's first five star hotel with BIPV application applied our curtain wall Series PV modules, integrating solar power generation into the overall design and making the building more environmental friendly," said Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli Green Energy.
"The Company also focuses on the innovative applications of PV modules with traditional agriculture, promoting the development of eco-agriculture. Besides, we installed more than 20 MW PV modules on our factories, parking lots, and other facilities, which will provide approximate 23 million kWh solar electricity per year for the Company's production and operation. This will help the Company to reduce CO2 emission and increase renewable energy consumption," Mr. Miao added.
