Chinese polysilicon producer and solar developer Goldpoly New Energy Holdings Ltd. and its shareholder company Renewable Energy Trade Board Corp. have officially acquired 180 MW of newly commissioned PV projects from Zhongli Talesun. The 180 MW consists of three PV projects located in Gonghe, Qinghai Province, China.
As of Jan. 7, the company had commissioned 13 grid-connected PV projects in China totaling 531.7 MW. The company’s operational PV power plants consist of four plants in Gonghe, Qinghai Province totaling 200 MW; four plants in Inner Mongolia totaling 195 MW; two plants in Xuzhou, Jiangsu Province totaling 23.8 MW; one 100 MW plant in Jiayuguan, Gansu Province; one 10.8 MW plant in Quanzhou, Fujian Province; and one 2.1 MW plant in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province.
Goldpoly notes that it will continue to take advantage of the resources of its largest shareholder, China Merchants New Energy Group, to expand its development activities at home and abroad. In December, Goldpoly announced that it plans to change its name to United Photovoltaics to reflect the new direction of the company’s business, namely the fact that the company is now focusing on developing large-scale PV power plants.
