All modules were tested under high temperature and low irradiation from
September 1, 2011 to August 31, 2012. By comparing the average energy output
per watt of all the modules, Yingli Green Energy's PANDA module emerged as the
second best, which proved its stable performance under severe conditions.
According to the test result, the electricity output of PANDA module was 0.6%
lower than the top performer, 2.9% higher than the average level and 5.0%
higher than the lowest ranking module. For example, a 30 kWp PV system in
Germany using the "Yingli Solar PANDA" modules is expected to generate
approximately 1200 kWh more per annum than using modules from the lowest
ranking performer.

The Company's multicrystalline PV module also excelled in the "2010 Energy
Yield Test" by TUV Rheinland, ranking the second best amongst thirteen PV
modules from eleven participating PV manufacturers from Europe,North
AmericaandAsia.

"We're inspired to have continued our success in the TUV Energy Yield Test."
said Dr. Dengyuan Song, Chief Technology Officer of Yingli Green Energy. "I
believe that the exceptional performance of our products is attributable to
our stringent quality control efforts and firm commitment of technology
innovations."

Note: The relative measurement of "TUV Rheinland 2011 Energy Yield Test" leads
to a measurement uncertainty of +1% and -1.5%, which has to be considered when
comparing the results of the participating products.
