During the reporting period, affected by the rising prices of silicon materials and bulk commodities, the construction cost of photovoltaic power plants increased and the market driving force weakened.

As of the end of the second quarter, photovoltaic glass production capacity increased by 46.93% year-on-year. Affected by this, the price of photovoltaic glass has gradually adjusted downward from a high level.
