Distributed PV power

To speed up the development of distributed PV power generation, GCL New Energy launched a “GCL PV Roof” program in October 2016, according to which the first batch of projects would be carried out mainly in Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, the Yangtze River Delta, the Pearl River Delta, and Central China that cover 18 provinces/municipalities in cooperation with various types of business partners in three major forms - energy contract management, roof leasing, and joint venture. Internally, the company has built a distributed energy Internet platform combining project financing, investment, development, construction, operation, management and financial services to integrate various resources for the promotion of distributed PV power generation.

Innovative business model

Following the strategy of “finance + Internet,” GCL New Energy develops products in a financial way of thinking and builds platforms in an Internet way of thinking to construct an innovative business model that integrates the government, power grid, PV enterprises, financial institutions, insurance companies, and other stakeholders, thus defusing the risks in the sustainable management ability of PV roof owners, the quality of PV roofs, and the right of use of such roofs.

Strategic cooperation in development

To promote the use distributed PV power and increase the proportion of clean energy in total primary energy, the Company clearly positions its partners, unifies its policies and management channels, and introduces key customers and group customers to make large-scale promotion possible by “fanning out from a point to an area.”

Industry-leading cost level

Making full use of the advantages of its integrated PV industry chain and based on its management system that integrates development, construction and operation, the Company’s PV projects boast an industry-leading cost level and drive the healthy development of the industry.

Promoting development efficiency by scientific management

Starting from the source and focusing on management, GCL New Energy has rapidly established a company-wide management system and management standard for PV business, formed a multi-site interconnected development system, and rapidly improved development efficiency in a short time.

Photovoltaic Agriculture

GCL New Energy Holdings Limited currently has more than 50 complementary PV power stations that have been connected to the power grid or are under construction, with a total installed capacity of 1476MW. These include 22 agriculture-PV, 11 fishery-PV, and 1 poultry- PV complementary power stations in grid-connected operation, and 8 agriculture-PV and 11 fishery-PV complementary power stations under construction. Produce supported by these PV projects includes oil peony, vegetables, fruits, beans, oil sunflower, grain, fish, shrimp, chicken, sheep, etc.

Oil peony as the main business

Based on extensive investigation and expert argumentation in a certain scope, GCL New Energy Holdings Limited decided to take oil peony as the company’s main business of PV agriculture, with the aim of building a professional oil peony PV industry in cooperation with Heze Peony Research Institute and other professional peony planting units. Up to now, 9 oil peony PV projects have been completed in Henan, Shanxi, Anhui, Jiangsu, Sichuan, and other provinces, totaling a grid-connected power generating capacity of over 200MW.

Diversified PV agricultural greenhouses

GCL New Energy has built large-scale hi-tech intelligent PV agricultural greenhouses and henhouses in Shandong, Ningxia, Inner Mongolia, Jilin, and Anhui, which integrate agricultural planting and display functions. In particular, the Yongqiao high-tech intelligent greenhouse in Suzhou, Anhui is an exemplary project demonstrating the company’s dedication to China’s agriculture.

No yield reduction in PV farmland

The PV module array structure is improved and the height of trestles is increased so that crops under the PV panels can get enough sunlight and large agricultural machinery can enter the farmland to ensure that there is no yield reduction in PV farmland. For example, the Xinyuan PV farmland in Funing, Jiangsu achieved a rice yield of up to 591kg per mu by adopting a horizontal single-axis tracking system, ultra-wide span, and super high trestles, coupled with enhanced rice field cultivation management.

Fishery-PV complementation with unique characteristics

GCL New Energy has built a large number of water-surface PV power stations in Jiangsu, Anhui, etc. We formulate appropriate fishery plans according to the ecological conditions of the specific water bodies and work with experienced fish-farmers to operate complementary fishery PV power stations with unique local characteristics.

The concept of PV agriculture

GCL New Energy adheres to the principle of “no harm to anything and no scramble for anything.”
No harm to farmland: Concrete piles are used in PV projects so that soil structure and property is not destructed, influenced, or damaged. To dismantle PV modules it is only necessary to draw out the concrete piles and then, the land can be directly reused for farming or livestock breeding.
No harm to crop yield: The spacing between adjacent PV modules is 7-10m and the clearance between the ground and PV modules is 2.8m so that most crops have sufficient sunlight and large machinery can enter the field without difficulty, making PV farming almost the same as ordinary farming, without reduction in crop yield.
No harm to farmers: One the one hand, GCL PV projects are leased to farmers and benefit them; one the other hand, famers can work on the PV farm through leaseback or labor employment, which increases farmers’ income to help them get rid of poverty and become better off.
No scramble for sunlight, land, or space: Optimized special plans are designed according to the local sunlight intensity and light sensitivity of different crops to realize multiple purposes of “one light”, with scrambling with famers for sunlight, land, or space.
