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.
