Trina Solar has agreed to develop and construct about 300MW of distributed generation (DG) solar power and associated projects in Hefei, Anhui Province, China.
As part of the strategic cooperation framework agreement with the administrative committee of the Hefei Xinzhan General Pilot Zone, the company will start construction of the first 30MW commercial rooftop project in the second quarter of 2015.
Being the photovoltaic (PV) development centre of Hefei city, the Xinzhan General Pilot Zone will assist Trina Solar to secure support from local government.
The zone helps firms like Trina Solar to have their products covered by the PV Product Guideline Protocol of Hefei.
Trina Solar will utilise its technology, human resource, products, and experience to help further develop DG solar power projects in Hefei.
Trina Solar chairman and CEO Jifan Gao said: “This partnership is a strong strategic fit and marks the first significant step in our journey to build on our DG solar power business this year.
“China’s ongoing efforts to promote clean energy with supportive policies and reinforcement of the DG solar power projects development have resulted in increasing awareness and recognition in the market for DG solar power projects.”
Trina Solar specialises in the manufacturing of crystalline silicon PV modules and system integration.
