- JinkoSolar continues to dominate the Australian rooftop market
- Addition of N-type technology critical in doubling shipment volumes of 2020.
SYDNEY: – JinkoSolar announced today that it has completed shipment of more than 200MW to Blue Sun Group, a well-known wholesaler in Australia. The star performer is JinkoSolar’s 22-percent efficient N-type 166” wafer based module for rooftop market, available in several designs up to 370-watts. Backed by the industry-leading 30-year warranty covering both power output and panel construction, the N-type performance panel delivers long-term reliability with a unique tiling ribbon architecture that outperforms conventional panel yield in real-world conditions such as partial shading and elevated temperatures. The huge success and favorable market feedback of 166” sized N-type module has paved way for the latest N-type version of Tiger Neo series based on 182” wafer in 2022.
“Jinkosolar has made serious gains in Australia’s market in 2021 and particularly has been growing dominance in DG (distributed generation) market, considering the many logistics challenges, in particular the extreme rise in shipping costs,” said Ms. Anta Li, General Manager of Jinkosolar APAC, “With the high-efficient N-type module, Jinkosolar offers unbeatable value to our Australian customers compared to conventional solar technology.” She added “the capacity of partners like Blue Sun Group to manage stock flow is critical in 2021 and beyond, and of course our Aussie installers have played a key role.”
Commenting on the substantial commitment to the market, Blue Sun Group GM Mr Hao Wu shared: “In the face of market challenges, Blue Sun Group made the bold decision to back our installers with increased shipments in 2021. The success of our business this year is of course down to our strategic cooperation with JinkoSolar Australia, and our sub-distributor partners. As one of the largest distributors in the market, we understand the contribution Blue Sun Group can make to supply security, and this is why we are increasing shipments in 2021 to prepare for 2022.”
JinkoSolar’s 54-cell and 60-cell N-type panel, which are marketed towards the residential and commercial market respectively are starting to make a big impact and has been the most deployed panels in Australian rooftop market. Follow their successful introduction, the next Tiger Neo series is expected to gain traction in a significant way, based on which, JinkoSolar and Blue Sun Group are planning to announce further details on 2022 shipments in the coming days, with Tiger Neo panels based on JinkoSolar’s 182mm N type technology to be a core offering within the plan.
