SHANGHAI, Dec. 12, 2012

SHANGHAI, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd.
("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a leading global solar power
product manufacturer, today announced that it has signed a contract with fix
price to supply WBHO-Building Energy (Pty) Ltd. ("WBHO-BE") with 81 MW of
photovoltaic (PV) modules for the solar PV park project in Gamagara Local
Municipality, Northern Cape Province, South Africa.

The project will be developed, designed, constructed and commissioned by WBHO-
BE and is, so far, the largest project in African Continent and one of the
first approved under the South African government's Renewable Energy Program.

JinkoSolar will deliver a total of 344,540 PV high quality solar panels for
the project, which is expected to generate approximately 146 GWh of power
equivalent to supply electricity to 12,000 households and to reduce carbon
emissions by about 145,800 tons annually.

The project will be the largest individual PV solar plants in South Africa
upon its completion. Shipments starts in Q1 2013 and all PV panels will have
been shipped before end of Q4, 2013.

"This 81 MW supply contract marks an important milestone for both JinkoSolar
and our partner WBHO-BE in South Africa," said Mr. Xiande Li, Chairman of
JinkoSolar. "Thanks to rising energy prices, an abundance of sunshine and the
sustainable support from Government to renewable Energies, South Africa's is
on track to become one of the fastest growing solar PV markets in the world as
well as one of most important emerging markets for JinkoSolar."

"The partnership and trust built between JinkoSolar and Building Energy (BE)
during last two years in Europe, the clear commitment from JinkoSolar to our
investment in developing the South African PV market and the Bankability
obtained from over 40 Banks including South African Banks have been key in the
decision from BE to consider Jinko's modules in this project and the success
of the financial closure. We look forward to the completion of this project
and to making solar power increasingly cost competitive in South Africa,"
added Mr. Xiande Li.
