JA Solar Supplies High-efficiency PERC Modules for a 32MW Solar-Plus-Storage Project in Hokkaido

BEIJING, Nov. 11, 2019 /PVTIME/ -- JA Solar, a
world-leading manufacturer of high-performance photovoltaic products, announced
that it supplied all PERC modules for a 32MW solar-plus-storage facility. The
facility is one of the largest PV plants in Hokkaido,
and has been successfully connected to the grid. The project represents an
innovative large-scale application of photovoltaic and energy storage
technologies, and marks an important milestone in promoting the development of
renewable energy in the region.

The project is located in coastal Shibetsu, Hokkaido. The cold, windy climate and extreme weather
conditions in the region set a high performance requirement for solar modules.
The mono PERC modules provided by JA Solar for the project have excellent
mechanical loading performance, ability to maintain high and stable power
output within the temperature range of -40℃ and +85℃, as well as in extreme
environments such as intense wind pressure, low temperature and snowy
conditions. The excellent salt and alkali resistance enable
the solar modules to provide a strong guarantee for steady performance and high
returns of power generation from the solar plant in the coastal areas. The
plant is expected to generate an annual energy yield of 30,000,000kWh, reducing
the emission of carbon dioxide by 24,180 tons each year.

The solar-plus-storage plant is equipped with a storage
battery of 10,445kWh, which can self-regulate to ensure stable operation of the
power plant in both peak and off-peak hours. Meanwhile, the energy storage
system can adjust power output through an intelligent control system based on
the local power demand, further improving energy consumption and maximizing the
returns of investment.

Mr. Jin Baofang, Chairman of the Board of Directors of JA
Solar, noted that "Energy storage is crucial in the development of the new
energy industry. We are excited to work with our customers to develop new
operating models that combine photovoltaic and energy storage technologies and
drive the industry toward more efficient applications. As a major supplier of
solar products to the Japanese market, JA Solar is highly recognized by local
customers for its high-quality photovoltaic products and strong market
presence. We look forward to cooperating with more customers in the
