Ready to be the United States island territory's largest PV plant, the job will certainly have more stringent than typical demands in regards to module destruction rates, in part due to strong winds, JA Solar said.

The collaboration adheres to an arrangement signed last year by JA Solar and also Kepco, as they work together to promote the development of solar in markets all over the world.

After exceeding 10GW of module shipments for the very first time in 2019, JA Solar targeted a more 16GW of PV panel shipments for last year. Notable supply offers secured by the firm in 2020 consisted of providing modules for a 133MW solar-wind crossbreed plant in South Korea and also a 100MW task in Hungary.

Progression on the Guam facility comes as the region looks for to lower its dependence on petroleum imports and fulfill its tidy energy objectives. In 2019, the Guam Power Authority enlisted Engie to construct two solar-plus-storage plants with an incorporated capacity of 50MWp/300MWh that are anticipated to come online by next year. The French utility won the duo in the third round of Guam's eco-friendly tender effort.
