SHANGHAI, April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq:JASO) ("JA Solar" or "JA"), one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today announced that the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) has utilized the use of JA PV modules for its rooftop solar project.
The Knesset unveiled the 450KW solar modules installed on its roof at the inauguration of the solar project's operation on March 29th.. Occupying 4,650 square meters of roof space, it is by far the largest solar project completed by any national assembly in the world. 1,500 photovoltaic panels will yield about 10 percent of the building's electricity needs. This solar project, along with other energy saving measures, is expected to cut down a third of the energy consumption at the Knesset by the end of 2015.
Mr. Yuli Edelstein, Knesset Speaker, said, "What is happening before our eyes is a true revolution in energy conservation. It is not just the solar panels; it is a turning point with regards to the environmental awareness revolution that we have been promoting for the past two years."
Mr. Jian Xie, President of JA Solar, added, "We are proud to collaborate with local distributor Ralco and EPC company Solargreen as the module supplier for the Knesset rooftop project. This iconic solar project is of great significance in terms of developing clean and renewable energy in the country. Successfully shipping 450KW of JA modules to the Knesset is a testament to the high quality and reliability of our PV products and reflects our ever-growing global influence."
