Therefore, just around RMB500 million (US$ 77.2 million) will at first be assigned to the specialized tile module setting up plant. The project financial investment consists of equipment as well as installation prices of RMB577.02 million (US$ 89 million), according to an economic declaration.

Late in 2014, GCL-SI introduced prepare for a new 10GW solar battery production base in the Leshan High-tech Industrial Development Zone. The brand-new cell plant is expected to cost a total amount of RMB4.3 billion (US$ 665.3 million) and will be built in two phases.
