Shanghai, January, 28, 2019 –JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (JinkoSolar” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JKS), a reputable solar module manufacturer, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc., renewed its partnership with GRID Alternatives, a national leader in making solar technology and job training accessible to low-income communities. JinkoSolar has donated 600kW of high-efficiency solar modules to support GRID Alternatives’ work developing and implementing solar projects and offering hands-on job training in underserved communities.

The partnership will help GRID Alternatives to meet its goal of installing more than 10 megawatts of solar power in 2019, helping families and affordable housing providers save millions of dollars in energy costs over the lifetimes of their solar systems.
