Major tier-one PV manufacturer JinkoSolar said it had already secured a total of 750MW of module supply deals to the US in 2015.
The North American market has become the second largest, after China for JinkoSolar in 2014, with module shipments reaching 421.5MW, despite the latest round of US anti-dumping duties.
“We delivered over 400MW of modules to US projects in 2014, and in 2015 have so far signed US contracts to supply an additional 750MW,” noted Nigel Cockroft, general manager of JinkoSolar (US) Inc. “The US has become the second largest market for JinkoSolar after China."
The biggest market for JinkoSolar has been utility-scale PV projects in the US, relying on the company having the lowest-cost modules, compared to its tier-one rivals.
The company recently announced plans to have 450MW of module capacity operational in May, 2015 in Malaysia to primarily supply modules to the US without anti-dumping duty penalties.
JinkoSolar also said that it had secured the supply of modules to a 75MW (DC) PV power plant being built by Swinerton Renewable Energy in Cochise, Arizona.
The Red Horse 2 Wind and Solar project was said to use 248,750 of JinkoSolar's 72-cell multicrystalline modules.
