The Chinese company supplied local developer Smartsolar with 11,650 high efficiency PV modules. The annual output of the plan is 3,815,830kWh, according to Jinko, which announced the news yesterday, claiming the project is the largest of its kind anywhere in the region.

Construction of the project was completed last month on the roof of a facility owned by EMSULA, a company which bottles soft drinks. According to Smartsolar, the entire project was “100% designed, supervised and installed by Hondurans”, with the company’s general manager Ramzey Massu describing it as a “meaningful project” for the Central American region.
