JinkoSolar plans to supply 60.9 MW of bifacial modules for the first industrial renewable energy hybrid project in Chile. The hybrid plant will be located 10 kilometres from the city of Calama in the Antofagasta region, media reports said.
The proposed hybrid plant will consist of a 60.9 MW PV plant and a 90 MW wind farm.
Alberto Cuter, General Manager Latin America for JinkoSolar, told the media, “This is the first project in Latin America to be equipped with our bifacial modules containing transparent backsheets. Chile is the largest market for utility scale projects and we are continuously promoting our highest-quality modules in order to support the development of renewable energies in Chile and across Latin America. The PV plant equipped with our bifacial modules has already generated one of the lowest LCOE and is able to compete with traditional energy sources. We are expecting to sell more bifacial modules in the coming few months across the region.”
