Oct. 29 (Bloomberg) — JinkoSolar Holding Co. agreed to
supply panels capable of generating 19 megawatts for a solar
project in Chile.
The project in the Atacama Desert will generate enough
electricity for about 30,000 homes, the Shangrao, China-based
solar manufacturer said in a statement today. The buyer and
terms of the sale weren’t disclosed.
JinkoSolar has signed contracts to supply more than 160
megawatts of solar panel capacity in Chile this year.
Northern Chile has become one of the world’s top markets
for renewable energy, as mining companies seek new power
supplies from the sunniest desert on Earth. Installations in
Chile are estimated to rise to as much as 574 megawatts this
year, up from 9 megawatts last year, according to Bloomberg New
