PV modules from China’s JinkoSolar have been selected to build two solar parks in California totalling more than 38MW. Chinese firm JinkoSolar, which has its headquarters based in Shangrao, China, will supply 38.7MW of PV modules to Spanish Independent Power Producer (IPP) EDP Renovaveis for the two solar parks in San Bernadino County of US state California.

JinkoSolar will provide approximately 120,000 high-efficiency solar panels to construct both the 12.4MW DC Lone Valley Solar Park I and the 24.8MW DC Lone Valley Solar Park II PV projects, in Lucerne Valley, California. Both PV projects are expected to connect to the grid later this year and will provide energy to 5,000 homes in San Bernardino County.

Nigel Cockroft, JinkoSolar's US general manager, said: "We are excited to be working with EDP Renovaveis, an extremely reputable IPP company on these two large projects. This partnership with EDPR in the US is the beginning of a great working relationship, and we are committed to providing excellent service and high quality modules to support these long-life power plants.

JinkoSolar is starting to play a significant role in large-scale PV projects in the US and Canada. The company supplied PV modules for Canada’s largest solar roof in August 2013.

Another Chinese PV firm becoming heavily involved in US solar power developments is Yingli Solar. The company announced in August 2013 it had delivered more than 1GW of PV modules to the Americas.
