Taiwan, Yunlin - 25 October 2022 – Yuntai, a project company, which NEFIN Group (“NEFIN”) has majority control, has signed binding documents with Ciel et Terre Group (“C&T”) for the 100% acquisition of Guangxi Energy, another project company in Taixi, Yunlin that is part of Laketricity, C&T Group. This acquisition follows NEFIN’s efforts toward a large-scale solar development project in Taixi, Yunlin.
Guangxi has obtained the 50-Megawatts system-impact analysis (SIA) approval from Taipower and a large parcel of land secured, Yuntai’s acquisition of Guangxi will further bolster the total land holdings of Yuntai in west Taiwan and will significantly accelerate solar power generation land banking efforts in the area.
