Shanghai, China – May 29th, 2018 – JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: JKS) (the “Company,” or “JinkoSolar”), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced that, with the theme of “Conquering the Grid Parity Paramount”, the company showcased six of its blockbuster products, leading the charge towards a new wave of industry innovations and illustrating the strength of the company’s brand. At SNEC, JinkoSolar revealed, for the first time, its milestone JinkoSolar 410W Cheetah module that is reinventing the market standard for high performance. In addition, JinkoSolar also showcased its 310 W bifacial module, redefining the application boundaries of solar. Beyond the Cheetah and bifacial series, JinkoSolar also introduced, for the first time, its gold framed module designed to meet the need for elegant luxury in the Chinese residential PV market.
Showcased for the first time in the world at SNEC, JinkoSolar 410 W Cheetah module is the world’s highest-performing commercially mass-produced monofacial module, bringing the industry into the new age of PV 4.0 with mainstream module output of over 400 W. JinkoSolar Cheetah module is designed to meet the needs of the ultra-high performance market segments, such as the likes of China’s “Super Top Runner Program”.
All JinkoSolar Cheetah series modules are produced in the company’s next-gen ultra-smart P5 super factory and represents the most cutting-edge technology in solar module manufacturing. Utilizing an all new wafer and cell design, the Cheetah series has erected a new benchmark for ultra-high performing modules with its industry leading performance in metrics such as, but not limited to, output, limited degradation, shade tolerance, and durability. JinkoSolar 72 Cell Cheetah module’s 410 Wp performance is over 30 Wp higher than that of comparable products in the industry. The Cheetah series’ range topping conversion efficiency of 20.38% makes it the ideal solution for tender-based large scale PV projects and projects with ultra-high technical requirements such as those in China’s Super Top Runner program.
In regards to the widely discussed N-type and P-type bifacial modules, JinkoSolar is the only tier 1 module manufacturer to offer both types of bifacial modules. JinkoSolar 380 W 72-cell monocrystalline bifacial module has expanded the application boundaries of PV module installation. Traditionally, modules were largely installed in a horizontally flat or near flat manner. However, bifacial modules has opened the possibilities of installing modules in a vertical manner, drastically lowering the amount of space needed in PV projects. The ability of the bifacial modules to generate power on both sides has increases its practicality, creating new PV applications such as on highway fencing, greenhouses, sunrooms, and other building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). Depending on the type of tracker utilized, module installation angles, and the installation environment, one can expect an additional 5-25% power generation from bifacial modules relative to that of monofacial modules. JinkoSolar 385 W N-type bifacial module shares all the unique performance attributes of the P-type bifacial module and has the additional advantage of having lower degradation than that of the P-type bifacial module.
With the residential PV market growing at a breakneck pace, at SNEC, JinkoSolar also introduced its 320 W 60-cell golden framed module for the first time. Studies have shown that residential PV end-users, on average, are financially well off and are early adopters of new lifestyles and products. As such, these end-users have higher requirements for product personalization and quality. Combining a high efficiency of 19.37% and elegantly luxurious design, JinkoSolar golden frame module is the ideal solution for the residential PV market.
Given its frameless and extreme anti-PID characteristics, JinkoSolar 335 W dual glass black silicone polycrystalline module has also garners substantial attention at the SNEC. The dual glass design provides the module, particularly in areas of high temperature and humidity, with great weather protection. The dual glass modules enables stable PV system operations in extreme weather environments.
“Industry transformation, continued technology evolution, and increasingly complex market demands are all obstacles we must overcome to accelerate the development of the PV industry. Having been preparing for these challenges, Jinko displayed six technical products at SNEC, showcasing what it means to be at the cutting-edge of smart solar manufacturing today. As an innovative technical leader in PV, JinkoSolar will continue to development and present new cutting-edge PV technologies, lead the intelligentization of China’s PV manufacturing, and catalyze the development of the PV industry” commented JinkoSolar CEO Kangping Chen.
