Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited today announced that the company has surpassed 10GW of cumulative photovoltaic (PV) module deliveries worldwide. The company realized this historic milestone by June 30th, 2014. When fully operational, the total power generated annually by Yingli’s deployed fleet could power an estimated four million average homes, and is equivalent to nearly one fifth of China’s total residential power consumption in 2013 (assuming that 1MW of Yingli modules will produce 1.2 million kW-hrs of electricity each year). Each year, the modules will offset approximately 6.8 million tons of carbon emissions when compared to conventional coal generation, which is equivalent to planting more than 340 million trees.
“We are tremendously grateful to our loyal customers, supportive business partners, and talented employees around the globe, without whom we could not have reached this milestone,” said Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli Green Energy. “With this achievement, we are one step closer to achieving our mission of providing affordable green energy for all.”
“Going forward, we will remain focused on technological innovation and operations optimization, with the goal of driving the expansion of solar PV worldwide,” said Mr. Bryan Li, Executive Director and Chief Strategy Officer of Yingli Green Energy. “We aim to maintain our leadership position in the global clean energy movement by continuing to deliver cutting-edge products and services that deliver long-term value to our partners around the world.”
Yingli Green Energy has now delivered more than 40 million solar PV modules to over 50 countries and regions across the globe. They are installed in a broad range of systems, from high-profile projects at FIFA World Cup stadiums and small off-grid applications to some of the world’s largest solar power plants, including the Qinghai Golmud Solar Park. Families, communities, businesses, and utilities around the world trust Yingli to deliver high quality, reliable green energy solutions.
