Monday, June 03, 2013: JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JKS), a leading global solar power product manufacturer, today announced that it has completed the delivery to a Photovoltaic Solar project of total 5 MW in collaboration with Sunkon Energy (P) Ltd. in Ghespur, Gujarat, India.
Sunkon Energy (P) Ltd. has been using JinkoSolar modules since December, 2012 and Jinko PV modules have then successfully been generating power at a high performance ratio. With a total of 17,886 JinkoSolar poly-crystalline modules installed, the project was completed within 58 days and covers an area of 80,000 square meters. It is expected to produce 8,030 MWH of electricity per year and reduce CO2 emission by 7,882 tons.
Being one of the world’s most attractive emerging markets, India is densely populated, with increasing electricity demand and has high solar irradiation, an ideal combination for using solar power. India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has introduced aggressive and favourable solar policies to spur the development of solar energy with Gujarat state as the home to the largest solar program in India.
“I am proud of the great progress we have made so far in India, In only a few months we managed to enter into this promising market reaching a level of 80 MW sales of Jinko PV modules in Solar plants,” commented Mr. Arturo Herrero, Chief Marketing Officer of JinkoSolar. “While we were not among the first companies to enter India’s solar market, we have made our presence well-known rapidly and we managed to establish a firm foothold and good brand recognition. Armed with a highly skilled and devoted team in India, we are ensuring our customers are provided with reliable products, competitive conditions and excellent local services from our professionals in Delhi and Mumbai.”
“We have been very selective with our partners and have applied the highest industry standards when selecting the best modules for this project. Cooperating with JinkoSolar has proven to be a pleasant experience and we are pleased to have achieved objectives we set at the beginning. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my appreciation to the JinkoSolar team for their effective, efficient, and professional work,” added Mr. Gopal Sultania, Managing Director, of Sunkon Energy.
