Residents in Chalisgaon village, Jalgaon district of Maharashtra, India can now use the clean energy generated by the Maharashtra solar plant, thanks to strategic cooperation between the JBM Group, a leader in solar energy generation and LONGi, the world's leading solar manufacturer. 


Covering an area of 600 acres, the solar plant is the largest in Maharashtra, with a capacity of 135 megawatts. LONGi is the exclusive module supplier selected for its high efficiency monocrystalline modules and the quality of its product. The plant was connected to grid in June 2018 and has generated cumulative power of about 280 million kilowatt hours since inception.

The Maharashtra plant was invested in and developed by JBM Group as part of its leadership in solar energy generation, providing world class alternative energy solutions. In the selection process, executives and technical experts from JBM Group audited LONGi's silicon wafer factory in Wuxi and cell and module production facilities in Taizhou, China. LONGi was selected as the exclusive solar module supplier for the project.

"This is our first solar project in the Indian market." said Dr. Sharma, chief technology officer of JBM Group. "Through our visit to LONGi's production line, we are convinced that LONGi is a very reliable company from product manufacturing to supply and service. They have a complete manufacturing industrial chain and strive for perfection in every link.
