JinkoSolar (NYSE: JKS) is a global leader in the solar industry. JinkoSolar distributes its solar products and sells its solutions and services to a diversified international utility, commercial and residential customer base in China, the United States, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, Chile, South Africa, India, Mexico, Brazil, the United Arab Emirates, Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, and other countries and regions. JinkoSolar has built a vertically integrated solar product value chain, with an integrated annual capacity of 3 GW for silicon ingots and wafers, 2.5 GW for solar cells, and 4 GW for solar modules, as of September 30, 2015.
JinkoSolar has over 15,000 employees across its 5 productions facilities in Jiangxi and Zhejiang Provinces, China, Malaysia, Portugal and South Africa, 13 global sales offices in China, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Morocco, Ghana, Brazil, Costa Rica and Mexico and 11 oversea subsidiaries in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, the United States, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Japan, India, South Africa and Chile.
High efficiency, reliability and safety are the three pillars of what Jinko calls "Quality"
The entire production process is closely monitored. Every cell and module is subjected to at least 36 steps of the most stringent quality inspection procedures and undergoes comprehensive in-house testing in the most advanced UL certified testing lab. Jinko tests its products under extreme conditions such as tropical humidity, desert heat, coastal salt mist or agricultural ammonia enveloped atmosphere.
Jinko modules are expected to perform for at least 25 years no matter where and under what condition they sit and what challenges they will meet over the 1/4 century, therefore they must live up to the highest quality standards. This is why JinkoSolar maintains one of the highest industrial standards for the design, performance, and workmanship of its solar products to secure a reliable energy supply of the PV system for well over 25 years.
Warranted Performance in Real-World Conditions
All above factors combine to enable JinkoSolar panels of best and warranted generating capability and performance in the real world condition. This performance was proven by 2012 Photon Lab Field Module Test Results. It showed:
- JinkoSolar panels perform better at high temperatures and high humidity environment than others thanks to its PID free features.
- JinkoSolar panels outperform in harsh natural conditions, including frequent typhoons, earthquakes, snow and wind, coasts nearby, ammonia enveloped farms, etc., due to its superior mechanical as well as chemical stress resistant features.
- JinkoSolar panels generate more electricity early in the morning, late in the day, and on cloudy days resulting from its cutting edge solar wafer and cell technology.
- JinkoSolar panels have one of the lowest light-induced-degradation which ensures reliable output over time.
