In addition, the renewable energy law in 2012 allows investors to develop grid connected electricity production through the new energies including solar.
"We are delighted to develop strong partnerships with Jordan's leading solar energy companies and have shipped more than 1MW of PV modules to this new market in a short period, although we established our Jordanian operations less than one year," said Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli Green Energy.
