In the midsummer season, the ‘Suining,Xinyuan’ and the ‘Suzhou, Xiexin’ PV ‘agriculture + solar’ Complementary Power Station move into a busy moment. The ‘photovoltaic + peony’ base operated by GCL New Energy is welcoming the first harvest season!

According to reports, oil peony seed has maturity in current season. In this two power stations, there have nearly 1000 mu of oil peony has already planted. Based on a wealth of resources advantages, these oil peony has growing very well, and each plant has flowering results. After on-site measurement, the average yield of fresh fruit pods in the harvested plots reached 180 kg. After drying and shelling, it is estimated that 40 kg of peony commercial seeds per mu will be produced, which is close to the production level of conventional open-field plantings of the same seedling age. Through the generally production reducing in peony plant industry by 30% after the cold damage at the beginning of the month, the advantage of oil peony has showed up.

Since 2016, GCL New Energy has started to develop oil peonies in photovoltaic power plants and use them as the main product of GCL ‘Agriculture + Solar’ model. More than 8,000 mu of oil peony have been planted in photovoltaic plants, distributed in 13 bases in Jiangsu, Anhui, Henan and Shanxi provinces. It is estimated that by 2020, the area planted with oil peony for photovoltaic will reach 20,000 mu. 2018 is the first year of harvest. The various oil peony bases that have been planted will enter the high-yield period after three years. After reaching the high-yield period, they will continue to produce for more than 20 years.

Oil peony is more valuable than ordinary ornamental peony. In addition to its ornamental value and medicinal value, oil peony also has the characteristics of large seed yield and high oil content. The peony seed oil extracted from peony seeds has an unsaturated fatty acid content of more than 90%, and the α-linolenic acid content is up to More than 40%, rich in nutrients and health-care function, is a high-quality edible oil. The skin of peony root is one kind of the traditional Chinese medicine, with higher medicinal value. Besides the skin of peony roots, the peony’s flower, stamen, peony seed cake and peony leaves can also be processed into a variety of foods, daily chemical products and industrial raw materials, along with high economic value. 

In addition, because the oil peony is resistant and does not change for 30 to 50 years, it can be used to prevent wind and sand, to control barren hills and wasteland, and has great ecological benefits. From March to May in each year, is the flowering period of oil peony. The oily green branches, white flowers and azure photovoltaic panels can decorate to each other. GCL New energy takes the opportunity of oil peony planting, and combines the development of peony industry with precision poverty alleviation and rural tourism. The oil peony planting areas of these two power stations attracted urban and rural tourists during the flowering season. It also provides a large number of employment opportunities for the poor workers, increases the income of farmers, develops rural tourism, and vigorously promotes the integration of the first, second and third industries in rural areas and supports rural revitalization.

On April 14 this year, we held the ‘First China PV Peony Industry Development Summit Forum’ in Suzhou, Anhui Province, and discussed the development of ‘photovoltaic + peony’ industry with industry colleagues. In the forum, the Jiangsu Provincial Productivity Promotion Association issued the appraisal results of the research results of the “Phosphorus Oil Peony Standardized Production System” of Jiangsu Xiexin Peony Industry Development Co., Ltd., and believed that it “filled the gap in domestic technology and had better innovation. The development of emerging strategic industries of ‘photovoltaic + agriculture’ has important guiding significance.” At present, Jiangsu Xiexin Peony Industry Development Co., Ltd. has developed two products, which is peony seed oil and peony flower tea, and the next step will be to cooperate with relevant research institutes. Then conducts in-depth product development and research in the fields of Peony Food, Daily Chemical, and Health.

In the future, GCL New Energy will further combine the peony and photovoltaic industry into a new level and becoming a more completed industry model. We pay more attention to peony production technology research and development and experience accumulation, strengthen organizational management and team building, strictly control production costs, and achieve standardization and standardization of oil peony as soon as possible. The high efficiency industrial and brand development can help to promote farmer’s income and make rural construction more beautiful.
