SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Trina Solar has gained approval from authorities in north western Gansu province to build a 50 megawatt (MW) grid-connected solar power plant in semi-desert Wuwei municipality, the Chinese photovoltaic (PV) products maker said late on Monday.
The Wuwei municipality is well-suited for solar energy production because of favourable irradiance and the ability to sell electricity to other regions in addition to supplying its local needs, Trina Solar said in a statement.
The statement did not say when the plant will be built and the cost of it.
"This project will bring not only job opportunities to the Wuwei region of Gansu, but also environmentally friendly renewable energy which is vital to the overall economic development of the region," said Jifan Gao, chairman and CEO of Trina Solar.
