JinkoSolar supplies PV modules for Puerto Rico and Costa Rica

JinkoSolar has announced that it will supply METKA-EGN with 57.65 MW of PV solar modules for the largest solar PV plant in Puerto Rico. JinkoSolar will deliver the 57.65 MW of solar PV modules for the project located in the municipality of Isabela. The owner of the project is Oriana LLC, a subsidiary of Sonnedix USA Limited, and a member of the Sonnedix group of companies. JinkoSolar has collaborated with METKA-EGN on several different projects in various markets across the globe.

JinkoSolar has announced that it has supplied 76.86 kW of PV modules to Ad Astra Rocket Company, Costa Rica SRL.

Ad Astra Rocket Company, Costa Rica SRL, is currently generating 100% of its operating power requirement with solar PV energy. The milestone was achieved as the company`s new 76.86 kW solar PV array was formally connected to the facility and certified by representatives from Costa Rica`s electric power utility (ICE). Under normal operating conditions, the installed generating capacity of the PV array exceeds the laboratory`s requirement. This was fully anticipated, as the solar PV installation was also designed to supply additional energy needed during certain experiment campaigns, including operation of the plasma facility and the production of hydrogen.

The Ad Astra solar project was carried out under contract with Sibo Energy, a young Costa Rican private company, dedicated to the implementation of state-of-the-art commercial solar installations. The construction of the facility was initiated January 28, 2016 and took six weeks.

The facility, considered to be the largest ground mounted private solar installation in the country, features 252 solar panels of JinkoSolar high-efficiency Eagle module in seven modules with a peak generating capacity of 76.86 kW. The array operates under Costa Rica`s pilot program for distributed energy generation managed by ICE, where excess energy is fed to the grid for future use by Ad Astra in that same year.
