It may not get the attention that First Solar, SunPower, and Yingli Green Energy get, but JinkoSolar is routinely one of the top 10 solar module manufacturers in the world.
JinkoSolar just yesterday launched a new series of “Smart Modules,” boosting efficiency.
“JinkoSolar Smart Modules correct mismatch issues towards cells and module strings by using embedded cell optimizer ICs that provide sub-panel level Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) functions. This allows any underperforming cell or module strings to continue contributing power to the string while not restricting the flow of the others. The Smart Modules will also significantly minimize the risk of hot spots which are the primary cause of module failure. Electricity generation increases approximately 20% when compared with standard solar modules which tend to have difficulty operating in unfavorable conditions such as in the shade, under clouds that aren’t oriented properly.”
JinkoSolar has production operations in the Jiangxi and Zhejiang Provinces in China, and it has sales and marketing offices in Shanghai and Beijing, China; Munich, Germany; Bologna, Italy; Zug, Switzerland; San Francisco, the United States; Queensland, Australia; Ontario, Canada; Singapore; Tokyo, Japan; and Cape Town, South Africa.
