Located on the “Silk Road”, the Ningxia Hui region is one of the birthplaces of Chinese civilization, and an important channel for transportation between East and West. With its unique irradiance advantages, Ningxia’s photovoltaic industry is developing rapidly, and the proportion of electricity generated by renewable energy is among the highest in China.
The Wulongqiao 228MW power plant in the region’s Lingwu City was financed and constructed by the Longqiao Photovoltaic New Energy Co. in 2018, and was based entirely on LONGi high-efficiency monocrystalline modules. According to statistics, the project’s annual average power generation is about 328.9926 million kW/h, with annual equivalent utilization of some 1,444.95 hours. In addition to delivering stable power generation income, the project also saves an annual 115,000 tons of standard coal, which can reduce sulphur dioxide emissions by about 10,000 tons and carbon dioxide by about 300,000 tons. The Wulongqiao plant therefore plays a positive role in both local environmental protection and energy saving.
Lingwu City has a long history of fruit tree cultivation and, indeed, is known as the “hometown of flowers and fruits”. In recent years, many locations have seen a new way to reap the benefits of the “Photovoltaic Power Generation + Agricultural Production” ecological model, made up of the three-dimensional utilization of land, planting vegetables and fruits with high-tech clean energy power generation.
The LONGi monocrystalline modules deployed at this project offer higher power generation capacity and reliability under various climatic conditions, especially in areas with abundant light resources. This can significantly increase the amount of power generated and reduce the cost of electricity, effectively promoting the win-win situation of clean energy power generation and advantageous resources, thus broadening the source of growth of the local agricultural economy.
LONGi has previously participated in the construction of power stations at Yinchuan, Hongsibao, Pengyang and other locations in the Ningxia Hui Region. As a promoter of global energy transformation, the company has consistently used the advanced clean energy concept to strengthen confidence in future sustainable development.
