Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Yingli Singapore has supplied one of East Malaysia's first solar power plants, a 1MW solar farm located in the state of Sabah on the island of Borneo. The facility was commissioned this February. The project was developed by Cahaya Metro Sdn. Bhd.
The solar farm spans an area of approximately four acres in Kg. Nyaris Nyaris, Bongawan, Sabah, Malaysia. It utilizes nearly 4,000 multicrystalline YGE 60 Cell Series panels that are estimated to generate approximately 1.5 million kWh of clean electricity per annum.
"We are pleased to have selected Yingli as our panel supplier for Sabah's first solar power plant with interconnection facilities and license to export power and we believe that Yingli is undoubtedly our best solar panel provider. We selected Yingli because their track record for product quality is validated by independent testing and assessments – and that gave us the strong assurance in Yingli Solar panels' long-term reliability," said Mr. Sean Tay, Project Director of Cahaya Metro.
"We are witnessing sustainable growth on the island of Borneo, particularly in Sabah where there are plans to make PV a pillar of the state's energy mix. We anticipate continued solar power plant development across the region," said Ms. Angie Koh, Managing Director of Yingli Singapore.
