JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or the “Company”), a global leader in the photovoltaic industry (PV), today announced that it has supplied 7MW of Eagle series solar panels to power the Guangzhou High Speed Railway Station. The panels will form a part of the largest railway station solar plant in south China. This 7MW solar system installed on the rooftop of repair and maintenance workshop of locomotive, can produce 7.7 million kilowatt-hours (kwh) of electricity per year, and will cut coal consumption by 2,525 tons. Further, it will also reduce carbon emissions by 7,676 tons.
We are delighted to collaborate with JinkoSolar, the world’s leading solar company and also the largest solar module producer for the development of this landmark solar project in our Guangzhou High Speed Railway Station,” said Mr. Lin Zhipeng, GM of Guangdong Power Renewable Energy Company, “This is a revolutionary concept will greatly influence the future of urban transportation development. Solar energy systems are the ideal solution for railway stations as electricity generated will coincide with peak energy usage during the middle of the day and the idle space of railway station rooftop can be used to install solar systems. We trust JinkoSolar as they ensure that clients are provided with high quality, low maintenance clean energy solutions for their power needs and we look forward to working with JinkoSolar on future solar projects” Mr. Lin emphasized.
This pilot project will help to stimulate more solar energy development in China and will also promote the creation of more environment friendly railway stations. Railway stations are an ideal place to promote and implement solar technology and we are excited to see this technology being implemented on a wider scale.” said Mr. Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar.
