When fully operational, the total power generated annually by Yingli's deployed fleet could power an estimated four million average homes, and is equivalent to nearly one fifth of China's total residential power consumption in 2013 (assuming that 1 megawatt of Yingli modules will produce 1.2 million kilowatt-hoursof electricity each year).

Each year, the modules will offset approximately 6.8 million tons of carbon emissions when compared to conventional coal generation, which is equivalent to planting more than 340 million trees.

"We are tremendously grateful to our loyal customers, supportive business partners, and talented employees around the globe, without whom we could not have reached this milestone," said Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli Green Energy. "With this achievement, we are one step closer to achieving our mission of providing affordable green energy for all."

"Going forward, we will remain focused on technological innovation and operations optimization, with the goal of driving the expansion of solar PV worldwide," said Mr. Bryan Li, Executive Director and Chief Strategy Officer of Yingli Green Energy. "We aim to maintain our leadership position in the global clean energy movement by continuing to deliver cutting-edge products and services that deliver long-term value to our partners around the world."
