Beijing, PRC—March 21, 2016—Asia Clean Capital (“ACC”) today announced a 2.3 megawatt solar power supply agreement with SKF (Shanghai) Automotive Technology Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of SKF at their production Jiading facility in Shanghai. Under the terms of the Agreement ACC will invest 100 percent of the system cost and will undertake the design, construction, and long-term system maintenance.
Electricity from the solar system will be provided to SKF at below-grid rates to ensure operational savings throughout the lifetime of the system.
