JinkoSolar has announced that it has supplied solar modules for America’s largest solar PV plant in Mexico. According to terms of the contract, JinkoSolar has supplied high efficient solar modules to a European counterparty for its 754 MW solar PV plant in Mexico, which is expected to begin operations during the second half of 2018 and generate over 1,700 GWh each year.
“We are very pleased to join this significant project,” said Gener Miao, JinkoSolar Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “By providing high-quality products, not only do we contribute to the development of Mexico’s clean energy, it also further strengthens our presence in the American market.”
Last month U.S.-based NextEra Energy and China-based JinkoSolar Holding announced one of the largest solar panel supply deals in history.
NextEra Energy announced that it is the counterparty to a major supply agreement that was announced by JinkoSolar in January. The companies amended the agreement this month, and JinkoSolar will supply NextEra Energy with up to 2,750 megawatts of high-efficiency solar modules — roughly 7 million solar panels — over approximately four years.
In conjunction with this agreement, JinkoSolar is opening its first U.S. factory in Jacksonville, Florida, which is expected to create more than 200 direct jobs in Florida and support hundreds of additional local jobs in shipping and other related industries.
