The field test measures each module’s yield in order to determine the exact amount of kilowatt-hours per kilowatt of installed power that flow from the PV system to the inverter.
JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or “the Company”) (NYSE: JKS), a fast-growing, vertically integrated solar power product manufacturer based in China, today announced that two types of JinkoSolar monocrystalline modules have been recognised for high yield by PHOTON Lab’s outdoor field test. The field test measures each module’s yield in order to determine the exact amount of kilowatt-hours per kilowatt of installed power that flow from the PV system to the inverter.
Two types of JinkoSolar modules were among the 100 plus modules included in the field test. One JinkoSolar module achieved a chart-topping monthly yield of 126.9 kWh/kW and the other yielded 123.8 kWh/kW, ranking them both amongst the top of all modules measured in the study.
PHOTON Lab conducts its annual module field test on a piece of property in Germany that is free from shadowing. Two to four units of each module type are represented in the test to prevent potential faulty modules that can distort test results. PHOTON Lab has developed its own fully automated electronics to perform the measurements at each module’s output to assure accuracy. The test operates under real-world conditions, storing module and weather data to ensure precise correlation.
“PHOTON’s outdoor field test has demonstrated that JinkoSolar modules are amongst the highest yield modules in the market,” said Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar. “We are pleased to hear that our modules performed well in this rigorous test, and we look forward to continuing to work with PHOTON Laboratory in validating the quality of future Jinko products.”
