JinkoSolar Awarded Guangdong Energy Group’s 100 MW Tiger Neo Panel Supply Contract

PVTIME – JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (the “Company”, or “JinkoSolar”) (NYSE: JKS) one of the largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the world, today announced that it will supply 100MW of its n-type Tiger Neo solar panels for Guangdong Energy Group in its upcoming project located in Huizhou in southern China. 

Tiger Neo modules were selected for this momentous project owing to their higher efficiency, improved field performance and reliability from lower temperature coefficient, lower degradation, extremely low LID and LeTID, and higher bifacial rate for the bifacial series. It is the highest efficiency commercial solar panel in the over 22% efficiency bracket. Neo has a proven 3%+ higher energy yield per rated watt as compared to P type modules.

Today, the industry is taking a major step towards re-imagining its focus on core technology and efficiency instead of struggling in module size. The launch of JinkoSolar’s Tiger Neo Series panel, the first product with over 22% efficiency on the module level has made this possible. That allows JinkoSolar to ship the 560W+ modules for the utility scale market, and 605 ~615W in the 78-cell version. 

“That’s the right benchmark to be aiming for. Driven by the rising cost of raw materials, land, labor, logistics, the advantages of our high-efficiency products reap the greatest reward,” said by Dany Qian, VP of JinkoSolar. As massive demand for higher efficiency modules is seen in the industry, N-type products with affordable price will come to dominate utility-scale as well as rooftop markets.” 

Tiger Neo is currently in full scale manufacturing at approximately 16GW (solar cells) per year in the JinkoSolar’s Anhui and Zhejiang production facilities in China.
