Photovoltaic module manufacturer Jinko Solar has supplied PV modules for 3 MW to EMSULA, short for Embotelladora de Sula SA.
EMSULA is the largest rooftop solar system in Honduras and Central America.
As many as 11,650 pieces of JinkoSolar’s high-efficiency PV modules have been installed on 34,000 square meters atop a production facility for bottled soft drinks, juices and purified water located at San Pedro Sula.
The panels are to cumulatively produce 3,815,830 kWh of electricity a year and reduce emissions by nearly 1263.6 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
Photovoltaic project developer Smartsolar completed commissioned the installation in March.
The company specializes in photovoltaic projects on roofs for commercial and industrial use in Central America.
Last month Jinko Solar announced that it was to supply 104 megawatts of DC photovoltaic solar panels to Utah Red Hills Renewable Park project.
Under an agreement the company was to supply 340,000 of its utility-scale, high-efficiency polycrystalline 72-cell panels for the project.
The Utah Red Hills Renewable Park is to generate about 210 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity a year, which will be fed into the grid under a twenty-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with PacifiCorp’s Rocky Mountain Power.
Based on EPA estimates, the project will power about 18,500 homes and prevent nearly 145 thousand tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually.
