JA Solar’s Major Breakthrough in the South Pacific

China-based JA Solar Holding Co., Ltd. has announced a “major solar breakthrough” in the South Pacific market in 2014, supplying several national solar projects in countries such as New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea with its solar modules. As supplier for several national solar projects, the company says it has received “strong customer feedback and praise” for the strong performance of its modules. Note that most of the projects in these regions are first of their kind and reflect JA Solar’s focus on strengthening its global footprint. The 350kW Auckland Shopping Centre project is currently the single largest solar installation in New Zealand, heralded as a major step in the development of clean energy by the New Zealand Government. Meanwhile, the first local clean renewable energy off-grid system is the 1.96 MW Tuvalu Islands Project. “It is a great honor and a testament to our product quality for us to be chosen as the supplier for these model projects in the region,” says Yong Liu, CTO, JA Solar. “As the first projects of their kind in the region, these model projects are of great significance in terms of developing clean and renewable energy, protecting ecological environment, upgrading power supply structure and accelerating the sustainable development of the economy in the region,” said Jian Xie, President of JA Solar.
