MISSION | VALUES | SUSTAINABILITY

JinkoSolar is a global industry leader, publicly listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 2010, and the solar panel manufacturer of choice for developers, EPCs, installers, and financiers. Our vertically integrated manufacturing, financial stability, and operational efficiency have produced results that simply outpace the competition.  

VISION

Be the most trusted supplier of solar and storage equipment in North America.

MISSION STATEMENT

We strive to be the best company in the industry to work for and the most dependable and trusted partner we can be to our customers.

We pride ourselves in our integrity as a company, doing for our customers exactly what we say we are going to do. Our solutions-driven philosophy has propelled JinkoSolar to the forefront of the global solar industry. We’ve invested not only in our products but also in our employees.

We are a fast-paced company with a solutions-based team that is truly committed to the long-term success of JinkoSolar and the preservation of our planet.

RESPONSIBLE MANUFACTURING

Just being a manufacturer of solar modules isn’t enough. We also practice responsible manufacturing that reduces GHG emissions, electricity consumption, water usage, and wastewater discharge per MW of modules produced. We also promote a sustainable product lifecycle, offering recycling resources to our customers, and protecting worker rights.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

NAVAJO NATIONS

JinkoSolar has provided 70,000 PPE masks and contributed $10,000 to Heart of America’s COVID-19 response efforts for the Navajo Nation through our long-term partner Swinerton Renewable Energy. Heart of America and its partners are providing critical educational resources to students unable to participate in distance learning due to their remote location and lack of electricity and internet. Over 5000 “PowerUp” bags (remote learning kits) have been distributed to the Navajo Nation, Ute Mountain Ute, and Hopi reservations in the past two months. 

GRID ALTERNATIVES DONATIONS (#millionsolarstrong)

We activated a philanthropic partnership with GRID Alternatives, the nation’s largest non-profit solar installer. Our donation of more than 1.4 MW of high-efficiency solar modules will help support GRID Alternatives’ work, bringing solar power and job training to low-income communities across the country.

MIAMI SCIENCE BARGE

We donated 15 kW of modules to the Miami Science Barge, allowing the floating marine lab and environmental education center to function completely off the grid. Aboard the Barge, there will be 75 kWh of storage capacity, providing three days of stored energy. With this system, Miami Science Barge will save more than $1,000 annually, which it will reinvest in its scholarship programs.

KIDS CANCER CONNECTION

Our donation of 5 kW to Kid’s Cancer Connection will save the facility more than $1,000 per year, money that will be put towards a variety of services to help children and their families through the challenges of childhood cancer. Kids Cancer Connection provides a variety of patient psychosocial services to more than 100 children’s hospitals across the country for children with cancer and their families.

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS

We had a strategic partnership with the 2015, 2017, and 2018 NBA Champions, the Golden State Warriors, revealing the benefits of solar energy to the Warriors’ fan base. Through this partnership, JinkoSolar and the Warriors expect to increase Bay Area awareness of environmental responsibility and sustainable living.

ARC HOUSE, FLEX HOUSE, AND THE ALIGN PROJECT SPONSORSHIPS

In partnership with Green Builder® Media, we supplied our high-efficiency modules to power these commercially available, next-generation homes. Future homeowners know the importance of energy efficiency and sustainable living. These homes show how small, affordable spaces can be practical, smart, and beautiful.

EVERYBODY SOLAR DONATIONS

As an active contributor to Everybody Solar, we have donated more than 180 kW of modules to the non-profit organization. Our modules have provided the energy needs for organizations such as the Wildlife Associates in Half Moon Bay, California, Committee on the Shelterless (COTS) in Petaluma, California, the Sciencenter in Ithaca, New York, and the Eugene Science Center in Eugene, Oregon.

HELPING WARRIORS AND THEIR FAMILIES THRIVE

As a Corporate Champion, JinkoSolar supports Wounded Warrior Project®  (WWP) in their effort to deliver life- changing programs to over 100,000 wounded warriors, their families, and caregivers. Through support like ours, warriors are able to connect with each other, overcome mental health challenges, lead active and healthy lives, and find rewarding civilian careers. These programs and services are provided at no cost to the warriors and their loved ones.
