jinkosolarJinkoSolar Holding Co. won three solar PV projects totaling 188 MWac in Mexico as part of the country’s first long-term electricity auction since the implementation of energy reforms. JinkoSolar will develop and build the solar power plants.

Two of the projects are located in Yucatán and one in Jalisco. They are expected to reach commercial operation by mid-2018 where all electricity generated will be sold to Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission (Comisión Federal de Electricidad, or “CFE”) under a power purchase agreement for a 15 year period, as well as the related clean energy certificates for a 20 year period. The expected total generation of the three projects is over 500 GWh/year.
