Post date: 06/01/2014
Chinese polysilicon producer and solar developer Goldpoly New Energy Holdings Ltd. and its shareholder company Renewable Energy Trade Board Corp. (EBOD) announced that the 180 MW of PV projects they jointly acquired from Zhongli Talesun in mid-December has been connected to the grid. The 180 MW consists of three PV projects located in Gonghe, Qinghai Province, China.
Last month, 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 in China. Including the 180 MW, Goldpoly has connected over 400 MW of solar power plants to date.
In late December, Goldpoly also announced the acquisition of a 50% stake in a 23.8 MW PV project in Fengxian, Xuzhou City, Jiangsu Province and the grid connection of two PV projects totaling 90 MW in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The 90 MW, consisting of a 40 MW and a 50 MW PV power plant, are included in a conditional acquisition agreement between Goldpoly and members of the Photovoltaic Green Ecosystem Organization (PGO). PGO member GD Solar provided EPC services for both projects.
