JinkoSolar grid connects two solar plants with a combined power generation capacity of 39 megawatts in Jiangsu, China

JinkoSolar (NYSE: JKS) has announced the grid connection of two solar power plants with a combined capacity of 39 megawatts (MW). The Shanghai-based solar photovoltaic technology supplier said it connected a 24 MW solar plant in Xinyi and a 15 MW solar plant in Lianyungang, both located in China’s Jiangsu Province. The construction of the plants was aided by local government subsidies.

"These two new projects are just the beginning as we focus on improving our competitive position in project development in China," Xiande Li, chairman of JinkoSolar, said in a statement. "Having been successful in Western China, we are now expanding our downstream business into China's eastern provinces."

With the two solar plants in the Jiangsu province online, the company has connected a total of more than 252 MW worth of solar projects. 

"The addition of these two successful projects demonstrates our commitment to expanding eastward as we continue to grow our PV project portfolio in 2014," Li said.

JinkoSolar said it has sold 4 GW of modules, according to the company's site.
