- Leading global solar panel manufacturer, JinkoSolar, has supplied 1MW of high-efficiency PV modules for SGCC China Electric Power Equipment and Technology Co., Ltd. (CET)’s first off-grid PV pilot project in Ethiopia.
- This project is the first off-grid PV project undertaken by CET overseas and the first off-grid PV project in East Africa.
- The project is the first for the World Bank’s “Lighting Africa” program, it has extremely important strategic significance and demonstration effect, and has provided better electricity services to the African people.
The project is owned by the Ethiopian Power Distribution Company and is funded by the World Bank. The EPC scope included the design, supply, civil construction, installation and commissioning of the PV power stations in 4 villages and towns, as well as the operation and maintenance work for 6 months. JinkoSolar panels ensure optimal plant performance in each case.
CET has also recently won the second stage bid for a total of 8 sites, including 2.6MW using JinkoSolar high-efficiency modules.
As the world’s leading PV company, JinkoSolar continues to deepen its global deployment, and deliver PV energy to regions with weak energy structures.
