Chinese company Trina Solar Ltd (NYSE:TSL) said on Wednesday it has successfully hooked to the grid two-thirds of a 300-MW ground-mounted solar project in Yunnan province and is proceeding on schedule.
More specifically, the solar power company had connected to the grid some 203 MW of the plant at the end of the third quarter. The power generated at the facility is being supplied to a local industrial park and to farms located in the surrounding area.
Trina previously bought a 90% stake in Yunnan Metallurgical New Energy Co Ltd, which is developing the project in the southern part of the province. The installation qualifies for a 20-year benchmark on-grid tariff of CNY 0.95 (USD 0.15/EUR 0.14) per kWh, based on the current feed-in tariff (FiT) programme in China.
