Solar energy in China More than 80 GWh of electricity per year
As part of the "Top Runner" program of China's National Energy Administration (NEA), the project is located in the coal-mining subsidence areas in Datong, Shanxi Province, which is the first National Advanced PV Technology Demonstration Base.
The project utilized Yingli's TwinMAX 60 Cell bifacial series module, a frameless dual glass module that integrates Yingli's cutting-edge PANDA (n-type monocrystalline solar cell) technology which leads to a module efficiency of up to 18.8%.
The project is expected to generate over 80 GWh of electricity per year, which is enough to power approximately 37 thousand typical households and equivalents to offsetting over 50 thousand tonnes of carbon emission annually. ■
