SHANGRAO, China, June 15,
2022 /PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co.,
Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), one of the
largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the
world, today announced that its Malaysia factory has become its first
overseas "RE100 factory" fully powered by renewables. 100% of
the electricity consumed in production and operation activities
supporting roughly 7GW vertically integrated solar cell-module
capacity is supplied by green electricity.
There are two main methods of using clean electricity to ensure
the factory is completely powered by renewable sources, i.e.,
external procurement and in-house solar rooftop installation.
External procurement is achieved through utility-scale power
purchase agreements (PPAs) with local grid or hyperscale operators
buying the output of generators of hydro and solar power. The
annual purchase of approximately 0.44 billion kWh is making the
Malaysia factory one of the
largest solar corporate buyers of renewable energy in Southeast Asia. Rooftop solar power is
expected to be installed on its roofs by the end of 2022.
At full production capacity, the annual power consumption of
this factory is expected to be about 335 million kWh and its
average annual carbon dioxide emissions are expected to be reduced
by about 214,200 tons.
"This is another important milestone on Jinkosolar's journey to
fully power all its operations with clean power. It also provides a
timely reminder of the critical role a solar pioneer company like
Jinkosolar plays in leading a society-wide transition to renewable
energy," said Dany Qian, VP of
Jinkosolar, "We will always make our biggest impact on the
environment by providing customers with technology that enables
them to reduce their carbon footprint. Our clean power pursuit
reflects the shared values of our customers, partners and
