JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: JASO) ("JA Solar"), one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today announced that JA Solar will supply 8.1MW of its high-efficiency mono PERC modules to the first solar power plant utilizing PERC modules in Brazil.
Located in Minas Gerais, this project marks the country's first ground-mounted utility-scale solar power plant to adopt PERC technology. The solar plant was acquired by Sindustrial, a leading construction and electrical panel manufacture company, and Solatio Energia, the largest solar project developer in Brazil. The solar power plant, which is situated in a semi-desert area, will be powered by JA Solar's high-efficiency mono PERC modules. These high-performance solar modules can ensure high power and stable output under extreme environmental conditions including high temperature and drought, optimizing profits generated from the solar plant for our customers.
Separately, JA Solar's high-efficiency mono PERC modules are also well received by the distribution channels in Brazil. WEG, one of the leading Brazilian electric power companies, recently ordered 7.8 MW of JA Solar's mono PERC modules for distribution to maintain its competitive position in the marketplace.
Mr. Cao Bo, Vice President of JA Solar, commented: "Brazil has abundant solar energy resources and represents a promising market for solar energy. JA Solar entered the Brazilian market in 2015, and provided a total of 254MW of solar modules for the country's biggest solar plant in 2016. Additionally, we established our Brazilian subsidiary last year, expanding our presence and further supporting our customers and partners in the region. JA Solar is committed to our R&D efforts to develop high-performance solar modules. As a PERC patent holder, JA Solar is capable of providing our Brazilian customers with more reliable products and services."
