JinkoSolar has announced the official launch of its 2020 flagship Tiger Pro module series. Unveiled through a virtual product lunch, the Tiger Pro module series can generate a maximum power output of up to 580 W — 40% higher than current mainstream 72-cell modules.
The Tiger Pro modules use half-cut cells, nine busbars and tiling/shingling ribbon technology to improve performance. Efficiencies have been recorded at 21.6%. The Tiger Pro line features both mono- and bifacial modules. Mass production should commence in Q3.
“The global PV market is rapidly moving toward high-performance modules to reduce system costs and initial upfront capital investment, so it was time to consolidate our competitiveness by leveraging our ability to rapidly begin mass producing cutting-edge products,” said Mr. Kangping Chen, JinkoSolar’s CEO. “We always modify our designs based on customer feedback and market response because designing high-efficiency products in the lab is one thing, but ramping up to mass production drives the entire industry forward together towards grid parity. With various types of modules, Tiger Pro series enables the construction of more powerful and efficient solar power farms that will bring higher return on investment for projects with larger technical and efficiency requirements.”
