JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a leading global solar power product manufacturer, today announced that it has donated 30 kW of solar PV modules to Mumuke village in Kashgar Prefecture, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in western China.
With a population of approximately 120 residents, Mumuke village is located in a remote part of Xinjiang Province where electricity from the national grid is unavailable and there is little in terms of transportation infrastructure. The off-grid system will meet the basic electricity needs of the village. This donation is the result of joint efforts between JinkoSolar and Schneider, the global specialist in energy management.
By providing solar PV Modules, JinkoSolar is helping to provide solutions to a region with persistent electricity shortage.
This donation follows the 15 kW of solar panels that were donated by JinkoSolar in September 2012 to three local elementary schools located in Chengduo County, Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, together with other necessary supplies such as computers, clothing and books.
"We are happy to see our Jinko modules are used to provide residents in Mumuke with a renewable source of electricity that will provide them benefits from for many years," commented Mr. Kangping Chen, Chief Executive Officer of JinkoSolar. "JinkoSolar's growth has been supported by many communities across the globe over the past couple of years and we are determined to give back to the community in a meaningful way. We intend to continue to offer similar donations, eventually providing electricity not only to western China, but also to other geographic areas, such as Africa and South America."
