JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. has announced that it will supply 60.9 MW of bifacial modules for the first industrial hybrid plant in Chile. The hybrid plant will be located about 10 kilometers outside the city of Calama in the Antofagasta Region and will consist of a 60.9 MW PV plant and a 90 MW wind farm.
The hybrid PV plant, whose construction is expected to be finished in early 2021, will use about 154,710 JinkoSolar Bifacial panels to produce an estimated 184 GWh of electricity annually.
"This is the first project in Latin America to be equipped with our bifacial modules containing transparent backsheets," commented Mr. Alberto Cuter, General Manager Latin America for JinkoSolar. "Chile is the largest market for utility scale projects and we are continuously promoting our highest-quality modules in order to support the development of renewable energies in Chile and across Latin America. The PV plant equipped with our bifacial modules has already generated one of the lowest LCOE and is able to compete with traditional energy sources. We are expecting to sell more bifacial modules in the coming few months across the region."
