JinkoSolar Holding Co. has supplied 3 megawatts of photovoltaic modules to Embotelladora de Sula S.A. for Honduras’s largest rooftop solar system, which is also the largest solar PV rooftop project in Central America.
The project uses 11,650 pieces of JinkoSolar’s high-efficiency PV modules that will produce approximately 3,815,830 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year and reduce emissions by nearly 1263.6 tons of CO2 annually.
“Energy prices tend to be higher in Central America than elsewhere given the region’s dependence on imported fossil fuels which accounts for 45% of all energy generated,” said Alberto Cuter, JinkoSolar’s Sales Director for Emerging Markets. “For countries that rely disproportionately on oil for power generation, volatility of energy prices forces people to plan for the medium to long-term, and solar becomes the best substitution of energy. We are proud to supply JinkoSolar modules for this project that makes this rooftop system not only the largest in Central American but also an example to the rest of the region.”
