Yingli Green Energy supplies 25 MW of solar modules to Arizona's Queen Creek Solar Farm
Baoding, China / San Francisco, USA - Yingli Green Energy Holding Company announced that its subsidiary, Yingli Green Energy Americas, supplied 25 MW of solar PV modules to Arizona's Queen Creek Solar Farm.
All electricity produced by the Queen Creek Solar Farm is being purchased by the Salt River Project, the nation's third-largest investor-owned utility, through a 20-year power purchase agreement. The installation used over 90,000 Yingli 72 Cell Solar modules affixed and operating on a single axis solar tracking system to maximize performance, and will generate enough electricity to power approximately 3,300 homes in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area.The Queen Creek Solar Farm is one of several large-scale solar projects situated in desert locations that use Yingli Solar modules, which have a strong track record of success in arid conditions.
Mr. Michael Martin, CEO of juwi solar Inc., commented, "The Queen Creek Solar Farm achieved commercial operation less than one year after our groundbreaking, which is a highly efficient construction schedule for a project of this magnitude. Yingli Americas's sophisticated logistical support and flexibility was a key factor in the successful construction and commissioning of the entire system."
