Yingli Green Energy, the largest vertically integrated solar panel manufacturer in the world, known as “Yingli Solar”, this week announced that the Company will supply 72 megawatts of multi- and monocrystalline solar panels to Solarcentury Holdings Ltd. (“Solarcentury”), a leading solar company in the United Kingdom (“UK”).
In terms of the agreement between Yingli and Solarcentury, the Company will complete the delivery of approximately 168,000 solar panels by the end of this year. The panels will be installed in projects across the UK. These projects will produce approximately 65,000 MWh of clean solar electricity per year, enough to supply around 21,800 typical UK homes.
Mr. Matthew Boulton, Chief Operating Officer, Solarcentury commented:
We are pleased to once more join forces with our trusted partner, Yingli Green Energy, for these exciting projects. We have worked together for a number of years, and the trust built up over that time makes it easier to execute on projects at this scale. Solar is still the most popular form of renewable energy among the UK public, unsurprising since developing our solar capacity stands to benefit many people and businesses. Also, by diversifying our energy mix, we can help improve the UK’s energy security.
“It is our pleasure to partner with Solarcentury, one of the most innovative companies in the UK and a long-term friend of Yingli. As we continue to see a strong solar market in the UK with a steady growth potential throughout 2020, we look forward to cooperate with this long-standing solar company on more exciting projects in the future,” said Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Yingli Green Energy.
