  • The ground breaking ceremony for the 750 MW new energy base investment project was held at Xiahe County
  • ReneSola and Eiffel Investment’s joint venture company completes acquisition of its first batch of solar projects with a combined capacity of 200 MW
  • Tianjin Zhonghuan Semiconductor increases the prices of silicon wafers, where P-type monocrystalline silicon wafer M10 with 170μm thickness (182/247mm) is priced at RMB 6.41/piece ($0.99) – an increase of RMB 0.3/piece ($0.046/piece) from last month

Zonergy 250 MW PV new energy project begins construction: At Xiahe County, the ground breaking ceremony for the 750 MW new energy base investment project was held, a news report said. This also marked the start of the construction of Zonergy’s photovoltaic power generation project. Earlier in June this year, Zonergy, which is a Chinese energy company active in solar and biomass power plant development, had partnered with Xiahe People’s Government for a 250 MW project with an investment of about RMB 1.12 billion ($0.17 billion). Spread across 8,000 mu, the project will be developed in phases, and includes PV square field, substation and main control room. In May this year, Zonergy had got into a strategic cooperation agreement with Talesun Solar (see China PV News Snippets: Talesun, Shangji Automation, Qingdao)

ReneSola & Eiffel JV acquires 200 MW projects: Manufacturer and supplier of green energy products ReneSola announced that the joint venture company it had established along with Eiffel Investment Group has completed the acquisition of its first batch of solar projects with a combined capacity of 200 MW. Eiffel provided the capital to develop these projects spread across various countries of Europe like Spain, France and Poland. In May 2021, ReneSola and Eiffel had established European Solar Energy Development, with ReneSola Power holding 51 percent ownership and Eiffel 49 percent. This company intends to develop up to 700 MW of solar projects in the next three years across Europe.

Zhonghuan silicon wafer prices increase: Chinese solar wafer manufacturer Tianjin Zhonghuan Semiconductor has increased the prices of silicon wafers, a Photovoltaic Network News report stated. The price rise is as follows:

  • P-type monocrystalline silicon wafer M10 with 170μm thickness (182/247mm) is at RMB 6.41/piece ($0.99), which is an increase of RMB 0.3/piece ($0.046/piece) from last month
  • P-type monocrystalline silicon wafer M6 with 170μm thickness (166/223mm) is at RMB 5.34/piece ($0.83), an increase of RMB 0.25/piece ($0.039/piece) from last month

Monocrystalline silicon wafers with a thickness of 158.75/223mm 170μm is at RMB 5.24/piece ($0.81/piece), which is an increase of RMB 0.25/piece ($0.039/piece) from last month
