JA Solar Starts Mass Production of PERCIUM Solar Cell, Conversion Efficiency 
Reaches 20.4% 
SHANGHAI, June 23, 2014 /CNW/ -- JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: JASO) 
("JA Solar" or the "Company"), one of the world's largest manufacturers of 
high-performance solar power products, launched mass production of its PERCIUM 
solar cell on June 20th. The PERCIUM solar cell, the first P-TYPE solar cell 
in industry that surpasses a conversion efficiency of 20%, has reached an 
average conversion efficiency of 20.4%. The 6x10 PERCIUM cells module, which 
has reached an average power rating of 285W, is expected to be put into mass 
production one week later. The preparation for mass production has taken only 
three months since the new product release early this year and the module is 
expected to reach an average power rating of 290W by the end of the year. 
High conversion efficiency and high reliability are two aspects the solar 
industry highly values as the next step of development. It's also what makes 
JA Solar products so outstanding. Early this year, JA Solar launched the 6x10 
PERCIUM cells module in Japanese, British, Israeli, Chinese and German markets 
and has received positive responses, especially from European and Japanese 
markets. Since then JA Solar has received plenty of enquiries and order forms. 
To meet the increasing demands of customers, JA Solar has completed 
preparations for mass production within a short time and will continue to 
expand the capacity of PERCIUM solar cells. Currently, the company has one 
PERCIUM solar cell production line and will have four this October. It expects 
to have eight in 2015. The capacity of PERCIUM solar cells is expected to 
reach 170MW by the end of this year and 350MW next year. 
"High conversion efficiency can bring about low system cost per Watt, which 
means low BOS, transportation, installation and land cost," said Mr. Yong Liu, 
chief operation officer of JA Solar. "The PERCIUM solar cell uses Passivated 
backside and local BSF technology to ensure excellent low-light performance of 
PERCIUM cells module. High cost performance on the system side can help to 
reduce the cost of power per KWH."
