Chinese solar manufacturer, JinkoSolar has announced a deal to supply 24.07MWp of solar modules for the ACT’s Royalla Solar Farm.

The Royalla Solar Farm will be built by Acciona Energy Oceania.
As part of the same agreement with Acciona, JinkoSolar will also supply 319,600 PV modules for a solar farm located in Northern Cape Province in South Africa.
