JinkoSolar Wins PV Magazine Award 2020 for its Tiger Monofacial Module
Shannon, January 25, 2020 -- 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 has won the prestigious PV Magazine Award 2020 in the Module category for its Tiger monofacial module. PV Magazine assembles expert juries and representatives from the global solar world every year and the PV Magazine award is presented to honor technological innovations and groundbreaking solutions in the solar and energy storage industries. The jury has recognized JinkoSolar’s Tiger monofacial module for its outstanding ultra-high performance and quality, especially its innovation in TR technology, which eliminates the cell gap to increase module efficiency significantly.
“The technology is really innovative and it can be applied to all sorts of different cells. For example, if Jinko has HJT in the future then it can also use the tiling ribbon,” said juror Jay Lin. Jinko’s Tiger deploys tiling to great effect, packing 156 half cells into the larger module format for utility-scale and C&I roofs, and 132 for the residential segment. Thus, the Tiger achieves 455-475 W from 156 cells and 375-395 W from 132 – both using mono PERC cells. At 21.6% module efficiency, Jinko’s Tiger is no pussycat.
