Unisun Energy helps Chinese steelmakers achieve transformation of energy structure
Shanghai /PRNewswire/ - Unisun Energy recently completed a 2.03 MW distributed PV power plant for Baosteel Group Nantong Wire Products Co., Ltd. and connected it to the grid as scheduled. The plant deployed the model of using self-produced power and is expected to produce nearly 2.1 million kilowatt hours of electricity from clean energy each year throughout its 25-year lifecycle, equivalent to savings of the equivalent of some 810 tons of standard coal and reduction of 2,018 tons in carbon dioxide emissions a year. Before that, Unisun Energy has successfully built a distributed photovoltaic (PV) project in cooperation with the world's leading metallurgical company Handan Ironand Steel Group (a.k.a. Hansteel), the Chinese manufacturer of highly specialized special steel Jiangyin Xingcheng Special Steel Works Co., Ltd. and Baogang Group.
