JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: JKS) today announced that its “Eagle+” solar module reached a new height of power output for 60-cell multi crystalline silicon module during an independent test conducted at TUV Rheinland’s Shanghai Testing Center. Under Standard Testing Conditions (STC), power output of the high power “Eagle+” modules samples manufactured by JinkoSolar reached 306.9 watts. At present, the industry average power output of a 60-cell multi-crystalline silicon module is approximately 255 watts.
Several advanced technologies and innovations have been applied to the high power “Eagle+” modules, which include new technology to reduce crystalline silicon defects, advanced cell structure based on DuPont™Solamet® photovoltaic cell metallization technology to boost solar cell efficiency, advanced integrated packing technology, and utilizing DuPont™Tedlar®polyvinyl fluoride film–based back sheets. Aside from their high power output, “Eagle+” modules can resist potential induced degradation (PID) under weather conditions of 85 degrees Celsius and 85 percent relative humidity for 1,000 hours. The antioxidant design of the cell and encapsulation materials also helps to eliminate the possibility of snail trails.
“As a global leader in the solar PV industry, we have dedicated ourselves to innovating high-efficiency, reliable solar cells and modules,” said Mr. Kangping Chen, Chief Executive Officer of JinkoSolar. “Our R&D team continues innovating new technology that has now delivered exciting results. Those innovations significantly improve the power output and reliability of our modules to ensure 25-year stable power generation, and we aim to put them into mass production soon. Highly cost-effective solar products aid in reducing the cost of solar power generation which we believe will accelerate the development of the global solar PV industry.”
