BAODING, China, Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (NYSE: YGE) (“Yingli Green Energy” or the “Company”), one of the world’s leading solar panel manufacturers, known as “Yingli Solar,” today announced that its holding subsidiary, Yingli Energy (Beijing) Co., Ltd. (“Yingli Beijing”), has begun the construction of a 20 megawatt (MW) solar power plant located in Shule County, Xinjiang Province, China.
