State Grid to invest in Shandong distributed PV projects: In an announcement, State Grid Jilin Province Electric Power said that its wholly-owned subsidiary – Anhui Jidian New Energy – intends to invest in the construction of distributed PV projects for households in five cities and 10 counties of Shandong Province. The project will have an overall capacity of 300 MW, with monocrystalline silicon modules of 450 W and above to be installed on the household roofs. The total investment of the project will be RMB 1.13 billion ($0.18 billion). In April, State Grid Jilin Province Electric Power had released plans to raise RMB 2.24 billion for PV and wind projects (see China PV News Snippets: Akcome, Jilin Electric, JYT)
JYT’s 10 GW large-size PV wafer project begins production: JYT Corporation, which is a group enterprise with four major industries including high-end equipment, new materials, new energy power generation and clean tech, said that its 10 GW large-size solar wafers manufacturing project is completed. The project had started earlier this year and has been built with advanced manufacturing equipment, automatic packaging lines equipped with MES systems and related auxiliary projects. Now, after 7 months, the construction of the project has been completed, and the equipment has been officially put into production.
