Yingli Announced the Groundbreaking of 100 MW “Topper Runner” Project in Inner Mongolia
BAODING, China — Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (NYSE: YGE) (“Yingli” or the “Yingli Solar”), one of the world’s leading solar panel manufacturers, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Yingli Energy (China) Company Limited (“Yingli China”) recently announced the groundbreaking of a 100 MW “Top Runner” project in Wuhai City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
Following the Datong 50 MW “Top Runner” project in Shanxi province, this project, covering an area of about 2.04 square kilometers of coal-mining subsidence areas in Wuhai City, is Yingli’s second “Top Runner” project. The project will also be installed with Yingli’s patented PANDA Bifacial panels, which can generate both by front and rear sides. It is expected to be connected to the grid and begin operations in June 2018.
After put into operation, this project is expected to offset the emission of nearly 60.3 tons of dust, 13.4 tons of carbon and reduce the discharge of 1.8 tons of cinder annually. It is of great significance to energy pressure relief, environment improvement and climate conservation.
“We are glad to participate in “Top Runner” program again with our reliable and high efficient products,” commented Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli. “Data shows that, since the grid-connection of the Datong 50 MW ‘Top Runner’ project, which utilized PANDA Bifacial panels, its monthly energy yield is up to approximately 17% higher than typical multi-crystalline solar plants. We believe that this project will be another sample of Yingli’s efforts in technological innovations to increase the efficiency and reduce the cost of solar power generation.”
