Yingli Green Energy announced that it recently announced the groundbreaking of a 100 MW Top Runner solar project in Wuhai City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

 Following the Datong 50 MW Top Runner solar project in Shanxi province, this project, covering an area of about 2.04 square kilometers of coal-mining subsidence areas in Wuhai City, is Yingli’s second Top Runner project. The project will also be installed with Yingli’s patented PANDA Bifacial solar panels, which can generate electricity from both the front and rear sides. It is expected to be connected to the grid and begin operations in June 2018.

This project is expected to offset the emission of nearly 60.3 tons of dust, 13.4 tons of carbon and reduce the discharge of 1.8 tons of cinders annually. It is of great significance to energy pressure relief, environmental improvement and climate conservation.

“We are glad to participate in the “Top Runner” program again with our reliable and high efficient products,” commented Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli. “Data shows that, since the grid-connection of the Datong 50 MW Top Runner project, which utilized PANDA Bifacial panels, its monthly energy yield is up to approximately 17% higher than typical multi-crystalline solar plants. We believe that this project will be another sample of Yingli’s efforts in technological innovations to increase the efficiency and reduce the cost of solar power generation.”
