SHANGHAI, March 7, 2013
SHANGHAI, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/-- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd.
("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a leading global solar power
product manufacturer, today announced that its first 100 kWp distributed
rooftop photovoltaic ("PV") power generation system for Eaton Electric Co.,
Ltd. ("Eaton"), was successfully connected to the grid in Shenzhen, China.
JinkoSolar provided 400 pieces high-efficiency PV solar panels for the project
which was managed by Eaton and installed on the roof of Santak Electronic Co.,
Ltd.'s factory. The rooftop PV system covers an area of approximately 1500m^2
and is expected to produce 100 thousand kWh of power while reducing carbon
dioxide emissions by approximately 89,624 tons annually.
In addition to supplying the PV modules, JinkoSolar also takes care of the
installation of the project. The installation used a low profile linkage
control single-axle tracking system to improve generating capacity and reduce
installation time, also ensures that it does not damage the existing
waterproof structure. The aluminum alloy structure is ideal for installation
in coastal regions where systems are often exposed to extreme humidity and
corrosive environmental conditions. The tailor-made monitoring system provides
customers with multiple methods to oversee the operation and maintenance of
the PV system.
"We are very happy to have developed a strong partnership with Eaton to supply
and construct this distributed rooftop PV system," said Mr. Kangping Chen,
Chief Executive Officer of JinkoSolar. "This project will act as a shining
example of domestic distributed solar PV solution. JinkoSolar, besides being
very active and successful in large scale utility projects, will also continue
to promote the development of distributed small and medium sized solar
projects in China as part of its commitment to creating sustainable PV
"We are very pleased to partner with one of the PV industry's leaders on this
landmark project," said Mr. Wu, Project Manager of Eaton Electric. " Eaton
EESS is very pleased to see the connection and commission of the PQ (the
Santak) rooftop solar project. To make effective use of solar, wind, hydro and
other green energy of nature, is the obligation of the electrical industry
practitioners. Eaton EESS is grateful for the efforts of JinkoSolar engineers.
We look forward to further building on our relationship with JinkoSolar to
implement more high class distributed solar projects in China."
