JinkoSolar Holding, one of the world’s largest solar module manufacturers, has recently supplied 55.7MW of high-efficiency modules to the Garissa Solar Power Plant.

Garissa Solar Power Plant is expected to be one of the largest solar power plants in Central and Eastern Africa once completed.

Located in Barki Village, Garissa County, Kenya, the solar plant is expected to be formally commissioned by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.

This solar plant is expected to strengthen Kenya’s rich solar energy resources, diversify its power generation mix, and reduce energy costs.

Once completed, the solar plant will connect to the national grid and offer energy costs that are competitive with other sources.

Commenting on the development, JinkoSolar, Vice President Global Sales and Marketing, Gener Miao said, “JinkoSolar is committed to providing the world with high-quality products to generate green energy.”

“Garissa County has favorable sunlight conditions for solar power generation. The completion of this project is expected to open up Garissa County, creating an economic hub in northeast Kenya that will generate economic development and boost local businesses. It is also another step towards President Kenyatta’s 2020 target of obtaining 100% green energy across the country,” Gener Miao.

The company has built a vertically integrated solar product value chain, with an integrated annual capacity of 9.2 GW for silicon wafers, 6.5 GW for solar cells, and 10.0 GW for solar modules, as of September 30, 2018.
