Yingli Green Energy Japan Corporation (Yingli Japan), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yingli Green Energy (Yingli Solar), is supplying more than 2 MWs of monocrystalline PV modules to Japan Benex Corporation. The modules will be used on the Benex Nagareyama Solar Port, which will be one of the largest solar projects on a rented rooftop in Japan upon completion.
According to the agreement between Yingli Japan and Japan Benex Corporation, Yingli will deliver more than 8,000 monocrystalline PANDA series modules for the project by the end of August 2014. Located in Nagareyama City, Chiba Prefecture, the project will be connected to the grid in October 2014. Upon completion, it will generate approximately 2,150,000 kWh of clean electricity annually. Installing solar energy systems on rented rooftops is an emerging trend in the Japanese solar market due to limited land availability.
"Since the project's space is limited by a small roof, our success depended on selecting a highly efficient module. Yingli's PANDA series is most appropriate for the project, with its high output and high quality," said Mr Yohei Kobayashi, Executive Vice President of Japan Benex Corporation.
