JinkoSolar Empowers 25MW solar PV project in Central African Republic, supporting World Bank’s “Light Up Africa” initiative

  • JinkoSolar, one of the largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the world, supplied 25MW high-efficiency modules for the successful implementation of a PV project in Central African Republic. 

This project marks JinkoSolar’s participation in its first World Bank Loan project in the Central and Western Africa region and plays a crucial role in the World Bank’s “Light Up Africa” initiative. Central African Republic faces a severe shortage of electric power and struggles with significant power supply challenges. However, JinkoSolar’s high-efficiency modules provide a reliable source of clean energy, greatly improving electricity efficiency and promoting the utilization of clean energy in the region. Particularly for the capital city of Bangui, the smooth implementation of this project will alleviate the power supply pressure and provide sustainable green electricity for local industries and residents.

Jaffer Wang, GM of Sub Sahara Africa at JinkoSolar, stated, “We are proud to support the World Bank’s ‘Light Up Africa’ initiative and provide reliable clean energy solutions to Central African Republic. Through this project, JinkoSolar demonstrates the outstanding capabilities of Chinese manufacturing in the global PV industry. This project exemplifies our commitment to empowering communities with sustainable energy and driving the global transition towards a greener future”.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
