Yingli Solar & Sun City sign cooperation agreement: Yingli Energy (China) Co., Ltd. and Sun City to Import Renewable Solar Energy Systems signed a strategic cooperation agreement to jointly develop the regional renewable energy market. According to the agreement, Sun City will purchase 25 MW PV modules from Yingli Solar in 2021 for the construction of water supply systems and other infrastructure in Yemen. Apart from this, both the companies will work together to promote the use of renewable energy in the Middle East, and promote new PV applications, actively explore the distributed solar market, and gradually strengthen in-depth cooperation in brand building and downstream development. Last year, Yingli Solar had invested RMB 1.7 billion to expand its solar module production capacity by 5 GW in China’s Hebei province (see Yingli Solar Going In For 5 GW Solar Module Capacity).
