JinkoSolar ( http://www.jinkosolar.com ) Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JKS), one of the world’s leading solar power product manufacturers, today unveiled its “WING” series solar modules. The sleek, lightweight product line marks a significant upgrade to the company’s already robust lineup of premium solar modules for residential and commercial applications.
WING series modules are marked by improved ergonomic design and aesthetics. Thinner than similar products at only 30-40 millimetres thick, the 0.5 kilogram, lightweight modules are optimized for ground-mount systems, yet also ideal for rooftop applications. These size and weight improvements increase packing density to allow for 6 solar modules rather than 3 per box, thus enabling a significant reduction in transportation costs.
Additional design improvements include rounded corners to make installation safer and more convenient. Junction boxes applied to WING series modules are potted junction boxes with the IP 67 protection standard. This effectively protects key components from water damage and extreme conditions by using a large area of copper for heat dissipation.
Along with improvements to the physical structure, the WING series also achieves an increase in efficiency. The power output of a 60-cell polycrystalline solar module can reach up to 260W with a conversion efficiency of 16.05%. All modules in the series have received a IEC 2400Pa Mechanical Load Test Certificate and passed the 5400Pa Mechanical Load Test in Jinko’s UL WTDP lab. The WING modules yielded superior stress analysis results compared to older products.
“JinkoSolar continues to strive be better than we were yesterday,” said Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar. We are committed to providing our customers with the most cost-efficient products in an increasingly competitive market, and we are confident that our new WING modules will deliver a superior experience. JinkoSolar works hard to ensure added value and better ROI for our customers and investors.”
