JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. today announced that it will supply 75MWdc of its PV solar modules to Swinerton Renewable Energy for the Red Horse 2 Wind and Solar project in Cochise, Arizona.
This large project will utilize 248,750 of JinkoSolar's high-efficient 72-cell polycrystalline solar panels. Swinerton Renewable Energy will develop and construct the project, in addition to providing ongoing operations and maintenance services to the facility. The hybrid wind and solar project is expected to power approximately 13,500 homes upon its completion.
"JinkoSolar is excited to work with Swinerton Renewable Energy and DESRI on another large-scale project. The Red Horse 2 project is a true example of the advancement of renewable energy in the United States and we are proud to be an integral part of the growing clean energy industry," said Nigel Cockroft, General Manager of JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc. "This adds to our growing list of projects in the United States. We delivered over 400MW of modules to US projects in 2014, and in 2015 have so far signed U.S. contracts to supply an additional 750MW. The US has become the second largest market for JinkoSolar after China."
"Swinerton is excited to continue our successful partnership with JinkoSolar and to bring jobs and years of clean power to Arizona residents. Red Horse 2 is an exciting solar and wind project and we couldn't be more eager to work with this team," commented Mr. George Hershman, Vice President and Division Manager of Swinerton Renewable Energy.
