Chinese photovoltaics (PV) maker Yingli Green Energy Holding Co Ltd (NYSE:YGE) said Tuesday it has supplied 1.1 MW for the largest solar project in Venezuela, developed in Los Roques by Consorcio Energias Limpias Alternativas Venezolanas.
The project consisted in the installation of a hybrid solar-diesel power plant, with over 4,400 multicrystalline solar panels able to produce over 1.4 GWh a year.
This is Yingli’s first large-scale project in the Venezuelan market, dominated by off-grid systems of up to 25 kW, typically in isolated regions. There is significant potential for more hybrid solar-diesel plants in the country as a way to increase renewable energy production and ensure reliable access to electricity in remote areas, chairman and CEO Liansheng Miao said.
