Mr. Alan LI, Chief Executive Officer of CMNE, said, "The Chinese name of the app conveys the meaning of environmental protection and the faith and persistence in it. After United PV became the industry's first listed company to announce its quarterly solar-generated electricity volume, the pre-launch test of EBOD is another initiative of the Group to strengthen information disclosure and tighten the connection among the public, investors and other stakeholders. We welcome all to participate in the test and enjoy the real-time industry information provided by EBOD, joining together to build a greener China."
