Not only BYD January of this year, Paul Weinan non-engineering department commenced the construction of the 94.5 MW in South Africa De Aar PV ground power station project, the construction period will last one year; same month, Trina teamed Spanish Gestamp, as the two of South Africa's Northern Cape Province large total installed capacity of 30 megawatts of solar cell photovoltaic power plants to the formation of the third quarter of this year, will be delivered; Prior to this, Suntech also signed an agreement with South Africa will build the capacity of 100 megawatts of solar power plants, total investment is expected to reach 350000000-400000000 U.S. dollars.
It is understood that the Chinese-funded PV companies involved in solar PV projects in
are generally European companies led project development, and then look for the
Chinese photovoltaic solar module to form a production plant. Domestic PV
companies and not independent bid.
The threshold is not high, does not mean that the threshold does not. Yang Feng said, local production in
will have an advantage in the tender of the project, but the price disadvantage
than domestic product. Currently, the quickest PV companies Jingke rumors they
have rented in South Africa
plant upcoming preparations for production. However, Yang Feng, Jingke action
too early points. South Africa
"BYD also plans to set up a module factory, but will wait until 6-7 months of this year," Yang Feng explained, mainly because the South African government tender schedule dragged on, and did not settle down, recently off than originally planned for six months. And bidding policies may also have new changes still need further observation, waiting for the policy and market environment tend uncertain Otherwise, "Once the the tender policy advantages can not make up for the price disadvantage, it is really not sell the."
Yang Feng told the Herald reporter, BYD hopes to get as much share the one hand, the government tender piece, strive for 100 megawatts per year, while actively expanding private rooftop photovoltaic market. He expects that, after 2035, the South African private rooftop market scale reached 300 trillion -500 MW.
According to the South African government departments the green economy Agreement signed in 2014, South Africa will be in the private residential installation of one million charge controller water heaters; renewable energy utilization will reach 3725 MW by 2016, South Africa; 2020, residential, commercial and industrial building roof to install at least 300,000 solar PV installations.
