JinkoSolar Partners With Tsinghua University; Sole PV Facility Provider In The Construction Of The 'Dream Grid' Plan
JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced that it will become the sole PV facility provider for Tsinghua University's 'Dream Grid' Plan.
The 'Dream Grid' Plan was founded by Tsinghua University's Department of Electronic Engineering in an effort to provide students with a means to give back to society in a socially responsible way. Students will apply the knowledge they've acquired at the university to provide children in the Tibetan-inhabited areas of Sichuan Province with a clean and sustainable energy supply. JinkoSolar will partner with Tsinghua University to implement the 'Dream Grid' Plan in Gonggashan, Kangding County, Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province and plan to build a mobile signal tower along with a micro-grid system to provide a basic power supply for Gonggashan center school and Gonggasha Yulong West Village School.
"We're very pleased to be invited as the sole PV facility provider for Tsinghua University's 'Dream Grid' Plan. We're also very happy to bring clean energy to Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture by working together with Tsinghua students," commented Mr. Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar. "We plan on providing domestic universities across China with more extensive experience through project based platforms such as this as we work to fulfill our social responsibility and cultivate local talent for the greater good. In the future JinkoSolar plans to explore more research development, joint training, and corporate social responsibility plans with universities."
"After careful consideration and filtering, we have chosen JinkoSolar as our sole PV facility sponsor," commented Mr. Qingguang Yu, Adjunct Professor of Department of Electronic Engineering at Tsinghua University. "We are pleased to see JinkoSolar strongly support the 'Dream Grid' and as we work together to take on greater social responsibility, something that JinkoSolar and Tsinghua share in common."
