SHANGHAI, May 22, 2014— JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JKS), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced that it has unveiled its new ‘Eagle+’ series of solar modules at the SNEC PV POWER EXPO on May 21, 2014 in Shanghai. Like its predecessor, the world’s first potential induced degradation (“PID”) free modules certified under weather conditions of 85 Degrees Celsius and 85% relative humidity which were launched in January 2013, the ‘Eagle+’ series which is comprised of JinkoSolar’s 60 piece poly module has been engineered to reliably reach 275-watts of peak power output: a new record for mass-produced and commercially available modules.
The ‘Eagle+’ series modules feature JinkoSolar’s innovative cell and assembly technology which enables them to remain PID free under weather conditions of 85 Degrees Celsius and 85% relative humidity, 10 times higher than International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards. Using new materials and technology, the ‘Eagle+’ series of modules reduces the possibility of snail trailing and yellowing resulting from long-term use to almost zero, representing a new standard for high performance and reliability in the market.
“Technical innovations such as these have radically changed this industry,” commented by Mr. Kangping Chen, Chief Executive Officer of JinkoSolar. “As a global leader in PV industry, we are proud to be at the forefront of technology by delivering the products the market demands. As such, we are demonstrating JinkoSolar’s commitment to consistently delivering the most reliable solar technology and the best quality products.”
