5.8 MW of these PANDA Series modules are installed on the rooftop of a new facility of a  multinational automotive company located in the Midlands, United Kingdom. With a coverage of approximately 35,000 square metres, the 5.8 MW system is currently the largest rooftop solar project in the UK. Completed in the first quarter of 2014, it will generate about 5.5 MWh of electricity per year, enough to power 1,500 homes. The remainder of PANDA modules are used on other large-scale rooftop projects implemented by Kingspan Energy in the first quarter of 2014. 

"This project serves as another milestone in developing our relationship with Yingli Green Energy, a global leader in renewable energy solutions. By leveraging our expertise in the construction industry and Yingli Solar's superior performance modules, we believe we have a robust roadmap to deliver high efficiency, low cost and low carbon building solutions across a broad range of market sectors," commented Peter Turley, Business Unit Manager of Kingspan Energy.

"The UK has seen unprecedented growth in this last quarter with hundreds of megawatts of PV –being deployed ahead of the Q2 ROC adjustment. We believe that demand for large-scale rooftop projects with a self-consumption model will, in the coming months, continue to provide a stable backbone for the UK market," said Mr. Ramin Dilmaghanian, Business Development Director UK, Yingli Green Energy.

"We are delighted to expand our presence in the industrial and commercial rooftop market in the UK," said Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli Green Energy. "The UK solar market has seen significant growth due to stable funding mechanisms such as the solar Feed-In Tariff scheme and the Renewables Obligation which is the main support mechanism for renewable electricity projects in the UK. We will continue to solidify our leading position in this sustainable market through cooperation with key partners such as Kingspan Energy."
