Dr. Unser, deputy general manager of FAW-Volkswagen Automotive Co., Ltd. and Hanergy Holding Group signed the "Cooperation Agreement for Solar 10MW Photovoltaic Power Plant". According to the agreement, the project uses the world's leading technology of silicon-based thin-film solar cell modules to generate electricity. After completion, it will provide more than 10 million clean electric energy for the production and life of Foshan factory every year, equivalent to nearly 10,000 households' annual electricity consumption. The total electricity consumption of the factory is 9.4%. The annual standard saving of 4,500 tons of coal, a total reduction of 11,200 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, 340 tons of sulfur dioxide emissions, 170 tons of nitrogen oxides emissions and 3,000 tons of soot emissions. In the environmental protection environment, it will effectively alleviate the state of local energy supply tension and play an active role in accelerating the adjustment of local industrial structure.
