Shanghai based solar panel manufacturer JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd. has recently announced that JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary, had its partnership renewed with GRID Alternatives, a nonprofit organization providing access to solar technology and job training for low-income communities.
A news report from Power Technology revealed that 600kW of high-efficiency solar modules have been donated by JinkoSolar for supporting GRID Alternatives’ work of developing and implementing solar projects, along with offering hands-on job training in communities that are unserved.
Apparently, this partnership would be helping GRID Alternatives in meeting its installation goal of over 10 megawatts of solar power in 2019. It would be able to assist families as well as affordable housing providers in saving millions of dollars over the lifetime of these solar systems.
Reports further indicate that with the support of JinkoSolar, GRID Alternatives would also be offering hands-on solar installation training for more than 4,000 individuals. This renewal also reaffirms the commitment of JinkoSolar to make solar power accessible to everyone.
General Manager of JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc., Nigel Cockroft, mentioned that the company always felt the advantages of solar should be widely available for all communities around the nation and across the globe. The company believes in the model of GRID Alternatives and would continue to support its expansive beneficial programs.
Erica Mackie, Co-founder and CEO of GRID Alternatives, said that the company’s work brings together the local communities, affordable housing providers, job training organizations, utilities, governments and solar industry for ensuring that everyone benefits from solar power. Mackie further said that large-scale equipment partnerships, such as JinkoSolar’s, has made it possible for making environmental, career-building and financial benefits of solar power to be accessible to all communities.
