SHANGHAI, Apr 17, 2019 — JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or “Company”), (NYSE code JKS), a reputable solar module manufacturer in the world, today announced it won the 5th All Quality Matters Award for PV Module Energy Yield Simulation (Mono Group) at the Solar Congress 2019 organized by TÜV Rheinland.
The careful evaluation of energy yield simulation is based on performance testing of samples randomly selected from mass production under global conditions that range from irradiance of 100-1100W/m2 and temperatures of 15-75°C. JinkoSolar ranked first in testing conducted for the mono group and was recognized for outstanding energy yield and its high quality standards.
Solar panels’ quality is the key to ensure the real electricity output in the field and secure PV project investment. A low-quality solar panel will meet a series of module failures like micro-cracks caused by the vibration during transportation, and backsheet failures caused by ambient humidity or ultra-violet radiation, reducing significantly the power output in the actual operating condition. When the module failure occurs, EPCs will need to shut down the whole string to replace the failed solar module, which takes several days or months depending on the supplier’s response speed. During the downtime, the entire string will not be able to generate electricity, dragging down the investment return.
Independent third-party testing report plays an important role in benchmarking the reliability performance of a solar panel. DNV GL performs ageing tests at a more stringent standard than the IEC certificate, in order to highlight the ultimate reliability performance under the extreme outdoor conditions. DNV GL scorecard shows that only a few Tier-1 suppliers have passed all the 5 test items to become the Top Performer, while JinkoSolar has been the Top Performer for four consecutive years since 2014.
The reports and tests from all reputable third-parties including TÜV, DNVGL, IEC, CEC, and more highlight JinkoSolar’s commitment to consistently deliver reliable PV modules as the foundation of the 25-year solar project investment.
