JA Solar, a manufacturer of high-performance photovoltaic products, announced that it supplied all PERC modules for a 32 MW solar-plus-storage facility. The facility is a PV plant in Hokkaido, Japan, and has been successfully connected to the grid. The project represents an innovative large-scale application of photovoltaic and energy storage technologies, promoting the development of renewable energy in the region.
The project is located in coastal Shibetsu. The cold, windy climate and extreme weather conditions in the region set a high-performance requirement for solar modules. The mono PERC modules provided by JA Solar for the project have excellent mechanical loading performance, ability to maintain high and stable power output within the temperature range of -40? and +85?, as well as in extreme environments such as intense wind pressure, low temperature and snowy conditions. The salt and alkali resistance enables the solar modules to provide steady performance and high returns of power generation from the solar plant in the coastal areas. The plant is expected to generate an annual energy yield of 30 000 000 kWh, reducing the emission of carbon dioxide by 24 180 tpy.
The solar-plus-storage plant is equipped with a storage battery of 10 445 kWh, which can self-regulate to ensure stable operation of the power plant in both peak and off-peak hours. Meanwhile, the energy storage system can adjust power output through an intelligent control system based on the local power demand, further improving energy consumption and maximising the returns of investment.
