A headline that is difficult at first glance to understand, so let us take it step-by-step.
Astroenergy is based in Hangzhou and is part of the CHINT Group.
Who is CHINT?
Founded in July 1984 in Wenzhou, in the last 22 years, CHINT has expanded from a home workshop of 7 workers to a leading manufacturer of electrical products with eight specialized branches, over 800 specialized partners and 16,000 employees.
Now Astronergy has won the bid for a 2-megawatt rooftop-photovoltaic project in the Hangzhou Energy and Environment Industrial Park, located in Zhejiang Province.
The next bit to understand is PV which is photovoltaic and sounds more technical than solar panels.
The project, which is being financed by China Energy Conservation Investment, marks the province’s first large-scale, on-grid photovoltaic plant. That plant will make high efficiency thin film solar panels which will create electricity.
The industrial park is located in the northeast corner of Hangzhou city, covering 23.8 square kilometers (9.2 square miles). The park’s green science and technology hall as well as its energy conservation hall are expected to be among the first buildings to incorporate Astronergy’s building-integrated solar panel technologies.
CleanTech provides all of the details and provides you research about every third word, so you can get the drift of what is being done. It is further evidence that the Chinese government is very keen on creating a very, very large amount of green energy.
