Solar giant LONGi has provided 100MWp of its high-efficiency Hi-MO 4 modules for a project in South Korea developed by leading local EPC company Top Solar.
Located in the country’s Jeollanam-Do region, the project was connected to the grid in July and is expected to reduce annual carbon emissions by some 100,000 tons, said LONGi.
The project is known as the country’s largest grid-connected project of the year.
It is worth noting that it is the first ground-mounted project to deploy Chinese modules. The project reflects the Korean market’s confidence in the quality and reliability of LONGi products, said LONGi in the press release.
LONGi entered South Korea’s solar market in 2017, and has grown to become the best-selling Chinese module brand in the country, supplying school, Agri-PV, fishery and large utility projects.
“We are delighted to have collaborated with Top Solar on this milestone utility project,” commented Dennis She, LONGi Group Vice President. “The cost of energy generation can be lowered as more solar is installed and Jeollanam-Do makes a significant contribution to Korea’s carbon neutrality goal.”
