It is supported by a 6MW/21MWh battery energy storage.

China National Offshore Oil Corp. Limited’s (CNOOC)  first onshore centralized photovoltaic project with a total installed capacity of 40 megawatts (MW) has been connected to the grid.

In a statement, CNOOC said the Animal Husbandry-solar Complementary Project in Hezuo City, Gannan Autonomous Prefecture covers an area of around 930,000 square metres and is backed by a 6MW/12MW-hour energy storage facility.

The project can also save over 20,000 tonnes of standard coal annually compared to coal-fired generators with the same capacity, according to CNOOC which holds 100% equity interest in the project.
