Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited today announced that it has supplied 15.5MW of solar panels to Marina Energy.
Marina Energy installed Yingli's multicrystalline YGE-U Series panels in three ground-mounted solar power plants in New Jersey: Frankford Solar, a 10MW project located in Branchville; Holland Solar, a 3.5MW project located in Holland; and Brickyard Solar, a 2MW project located in Farmingdale.
All three facilities are expected to be fully commercially operational by Q3 of this year. In total, they will generate approximately 17.5 million kWh of clean solar energy per year, which equals the energy demand of about 2,000 typical New Jersey households. The electricity produced by these projects will offset over 12,000 tons of carbon emissions over the systems' lifetimes, which is equivalent to removing nearly 9,900 cars from the road.
"Marina selected Yingli for these projects because they provided the best availability and product quality. They have proven to be a highly reputable company and we are proud to work with them," commented David Robbins, president of Marina Energy.
"We are pleased to bring clean energy to New Jersey communities in partnership with Marina Energy," commented Robert Petrina, managing director of Yingli Green Energy Americas, Inc. "This project builds on Yingli's deep experience and successful track record in the Garden State, which includes supplying high-profile projects for Rutgers University and the NY JETS, rooftop systems for homeowners, and ground-mounted PV power plants like those we've announced today."
