It’s time to celebrate another record-breaking year for solar energy! Our global industry is on track to install nearly 50GW of solar panels in 2014, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance – about 25% more than the 38GW installed in 2013. It was landmark year for Yingli, too, with the following major milestones:
- Exceeded 10GW of cumulative solar shipments globally! That’s more than 40 million solar panels now operating in more than 50 countries – from the deserts of Arizona to the peaks of the Himalayas.
- Completed the largest single solar project in Yingli history – the 200MW (DC) Centinela Solar Energy Facility in California!
- Helped U.S. Soccer legend Mia Hamm go solar, and worked with her to spread the message of affordable solar to homeowners in the U.S. and globally.
- Powered the final match of the 2014 FIFA World CupTM at Maracanã Stadium with solar energy! Our sponsorship of the renowned global event helped to promote solar energy on the world stage.
