JinkoSolar Holding has announced that it has donated 200 high-performance polycrystalline modules for a Rooftop PV system in a school in Medolla, Italy. Medolla was one of the towns most affected by the earthquake that struck the Emilia Romagna region of Italy in the May 2012.

The ribbon cutting ceremony for this new earthquake-resistant building took place on Saturday, March 23, 2013. The school is equipped with the latest energy saving technology devices.

"Rock No War" association, JinkoSolar and Tonello partnered to deliver and install the PV system for the new school. Any surplus energy produced by the installation will also be used by the surrounding communities for the next minimum 20 years. The project is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 210 tons per year.

"In support of the communities that have sustained Jinko's growth across the globe, we see the importance of this kind of project that allows us to give back some dedication, even if it is small, to society," said Arturo Herrero, Chief Marketing Officer of JinkoSolar. ''Solar energy is an extremely important investment for schools, as it introduces a long-term energy source, reduces CO2 emissions and opens up the world of clean energy to children."

"We are grateful to JinkoSolar for donating these solar panels, which allows us to promote green energy," stated Mr. Giorgio Amadessi, President of Rock No War. "This partnership demonstrates the benefits such cooperation can bring to the community."
