Hareon Solar
New $1.6 Billion renewable energy power project for Inner Mongolia.

Hareon Solar — a noted developer of renewable energy projects — recently announced its intent to invest over CNY10 billion ($1.6 billion) into a 1 GW solar energy farm to be built in Inner Mongolia.

The deal — which was formally closed with the signing of a Letter of Intent on the 20th of November — is between the Mongolia Alashan Civil Administration and Hareon Solar.

The initial 100 MW is planned for completion sometime in 2014. It is to be located on a 4,000 acre site in the desert. Currently, project plans are being finalized and the project is going through the government approval and feasibility process. Hareon will reportedly receive some incentives for the project, but no details have been disclosed as far as we are aware.

In case you aren’t familiar with this are of the world, the Alashan region is located about 1,200 kilometers (746 miles) to the west of Beijing.
