JinkoSolar‘s module shipments to India reach over 1.2 GW at the end of 2020.

Jinko has also achieved a record shipment of over 70 GW+ installations across the globe.

The company has added some of the best clients and projects to its portfolio in India. Jinko has a strong customer base, including independent power producers, commercial and industrial (C&I) customers, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) service providers, and rooftop solar installers. It has also penetrated the distributed generation segment with its Tiger and Tiger Pro Series modules, which are proven class performers in the utility segment.

Jinko has been a market leader when it comes to orchestrating a technology shift from polycrystalline to monocrystalline in India. It has advocated bifacial technology and its adoption in all future utility-scale projects. Jinko has and will be supplying large capacities to the likes of Azure Power, Fortum, ReNew Power, Adani, Mahindra Susten, Cleantech Solar, Hinduja Group, and KEC International in 2020-21, which is reflected in its annual shipment number of over 1.2 GW+ to India alone.

Azure Power successfully commissioned 210 MW during December 2020 in Bikaner, Rajasthan using JinkoSolar panels with another 240 MW under construction, for which Jinko has already completed the supply.

In one of India’s largest bifacial solar installations, Fortum is deploying 124 MW of Jinko’s Swan Bifacial series in a 400 watt peak power class in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.

Jinko has supplied 70 MW of Tiger Monofacial Series – 465 watt peak to Renew Power in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. All these projects have power purchase agreements (PPA) with the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI). Another 197 MW of the same product is being shipped to ReNew for its under-construction projects in Rajasthan and Gujarat, won at the SECI and Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited auctions.

Through its EPC arm, Mahindra will soon be commissioning an interstate transmission system (ISTS)-connected project in Rajasthan, where 155 MW of Jinko’s Cheetah series panels have been installed. Jinko also supplied 75 MW of the same product to the Hinduja Group during the COVID-19 pandemic and under difficult circumstances for their private PPA project in Tamil Nadu.

In the private PPA/C&I space, Jinko has supplied panels to Cleantech Solar and CleanMax. It will also supply more than 1 GW of solar panels to Adani in 2021 for their projects in Rajasthan.

India remains a very important market for JinkoSolar, which it has demonstrated by supplying extraordinary numbers in a challenging year. Despite the pandemic, raw material price rise and shortage, high freight charges, among others, Jinko managed to deliver quality shipments to its customers to the tune of more than 1.2 GW. This speaks volumes about Jinko’s commitment to its customers and its contribution to India’s renewable energy journey.

In recent months, the firm has also been building a strong case for its larger output and size modules, in the 182 mm wafer technology. Jinko is well spread out, with 9 productions facilities globally and 21 overseas subsidiaries. Its is on of the largest vertically integrated players in the segment with a 25 GW annual production capacity for solar panels.

Jinko promises an even better 2021, thanks to all its customers, colleagues, and industry counterparts in India for helping it achieve this amazing feat.
