Yingli to Supply 200 Megawatts of Solar Modules to California

Nov. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Yingli Green Energy Holding Co., China’s third-biggest module maker, said unit Yingli Green Energy Americas will provide 200 megawatts of solar modules under its biggest supply contract to southern California.

The modules will be used for LS Power Group’s Centinela solar energy facility, scheduled for commercial operation in mid-2014, Yingli said today in a statement. LS Power is a developer of power generation and transmission projects.

Fluor Corp. will provide engineering, procurement and construction services for the solar farm, with power generated from the project to be purchased by San Diego Gas and Electric through 20-year electricity purchase agreements.

Baoding-based Yingli said it has capacity to make 2,450 megawatts of solar modules annually.
