In the same period, the company also won the bid for 350.68MW distributed power station and 300MW ground power station, totaling 650.68MW, which accumulated high-quality and abundant project reserves for power plant investment and construction in the second half of 2019.
On May 30, the National Energy Administration officially issued the "2019 Photovoltaic Power Generation Construction Management Work Plan". Among them, the bidding project clearly adopts the method of “intra-provincial bidding + national queuing”. In the overall bidding system, the benchmarking price is changed to the guiding price, and each manufacturer issues the quotes directly. With the new policy landing, China's PV domestic demand will be changed to the parity and bidding model in 2019.
By making full use of resources, channels, services and other advantages, on the basis of maintaining the scale of power plant operations, Zhengtai New Energy accelerates the development of the overseas market layout and EPC projects. The enterprises are also magnifying the cost-effective advantages, promoting the company's PV business to develop a performance of high quality.
In terms of technology improvement, the company further achieved cost optimization and strengthened the international influence of component brands.

Half-chip, double-sided component power has exceeded 400W, leading in the industry level. The factory has established a special research team, focusing on customer’s quality requirements, maintaining close communication with customers, responding quickly to continuous customer demands. Therefore, product yield is close to 99.8%, and non-silicon manufacturing cost of batteries and components is much lower than the industry average level, which lay a solid foundation for the company’s manufacturing sector profits.
