- Sungrow has supplied its string inverters to a 120 MW rooftop solar project in China
- The Shandong located project is the largest commercial and industrial rooftop PV facility in the world at present
- Power generated is used by the industrial park for onsite use and excess is fed into the grid
Chinese solar PV inverter supplier Sungrow has announced supplying its products for what is arguably the largest commercial and industrial (C&I) rooftop PV project in the world at present, with 120 MW capacity.
Located in Jining in China’s Shandong province, the project has solar modules spread across 43 rooftops and expected to generate 110 GWh annually to power the industrial park. Excess power generated is fed into the grid as a grid-parity project, according to the inverter manufacturer.
The company does not share any more details of the 120 MW project, except that it has supplied string inverter solutions for this project.
In September 2020, online retailer JD.com in China said it will install 200 MW rooftop solar power capacity by the end of 2021 for its logistics and industrial buildings in the country with the help of its project partners including Goldwind and LONGi Solar (see China PV News Snippets: Total, JD.com, Xiamen, CDT).
