JinkoSolar , a global company in the solar photovoltaic (PV) industry, announced its new Eagle AC, an integrated product featuring JinkoSolar’s high efficiency monocrystalline PERC solar PV module and the IQ6 Microinvter from Enphase Energy.
By integrating the Enphase IQ6 Microinverter onto the backsheet of its PV module, JinkoSolar presents residential installers with a valuable proposition. The Eagle AC simplifies logistics, as installers no longer need to stock, transport, carry, and install separate microinverters onto the roof, which significantly reduces installation time. Once installed on the roof, the installer simply pulls the microinverter into its elevated installed position, which creates a 15 millimeter air gap and ensures sufficient air-flow and cooling. The partnership provides a complete AC solution for a safe solar installation. Customers can also monitor the Eagle AC’s performance through Enphase’s Enlighten app.
“We are excited to work with Enphase on the Eagle AC, as Enphase’s microinverters already have broad appeal in the market,” said Nigel Cockroft, General Manager of JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc. “The Eagle AC is the logical next step in the evolution of residential solar, and we are pleased to offer it to our customers. More information about the Eagle AC can be provided at JinkoSolar’s booth #3965 during Solar Power International.”
“JinkoSolar’s scale, financial strength, and manufacturing expertise make it an excellent partner to build an Enphase Energized™ AC module,” said Badri Kothandaraman, Enphase Chief Operating Officer, “Pairing the #1 global module manufacturer with the #1 global microinverter manufacturer creates a winning combination.”
