Chinese company JinkoSolar has delivered 106.4MWdc of photovoltaic (PV) modules for US-based utility-scale solar assets owner sPower’s Solverde 1 solarfarm in California.

Located in Lancaster and California in the northern Los Angeles County, Solverde 1 solarfarm project was built and completed by sPower within 12 months.

JinkoSolar's US general manager Nigel Cockroft said: “At JinkoSolar, we are committed to meeting our partners' tight deadlines.

sPower's project development senior vice-president Josh Skogen said: “Developing a solarfarm within 12 short months is a challenging feat and requires solid cooperation with experienced and capable partners.

“It was important that we selected a module supplier that could manage such an aggressive delivery schedule. We were confident that Jinko would be a great partner for the Solverde project, as it has a proven track record for delivering quality modules on-time.”
