Major Chinese solar manufacturer JinkoSolar has released a 2,000 volt solar module after receiving technological qualifications from tech certification firm UL Solutions.

JinkoSolar said the 2,000-volt Eagle module series is the “first” such product to qualify for listing by UL Solutions. The modules will be “deployed selectively” in the US market at utility-scale projects in the third quarter of 2024, with general market availability expected in 2025.

Nigel Cockroft, general manager of JinkoSolar US, said: “JinkoSolar’s expertise lies not just in advanced R&D but also in bringing those technologies to scale and making them available cost-competitively to our US customers. We look forward to the 2000-Volt Eagle Modules making a tangible difference to our customers’ bottom lines.”

The company claims that the higher-voltage modules reduce the levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) for solar projects where they are deployed. It says that the modules increase the string lengths for utility-scale projects which in turn decreases the system-level costs for a project.

JinkoSolar did not disclose where the modules were produced.

Like most major solar manufacturers, JinkoSolar’s product shipments have been at record levels in recent times. In 2023, the company shipped 78.52GW worth of modules—a 76% increase year-on-year—and announced even greater expansion plans for 2024.  

In February this year, the company received a ‘zero carbon’ certification from German PV testing firm TÜV Rheinland for tunnel oxide passivated contact (TOPCon) modules produced at specific factories.

FREE WEBINAR -This special webinar will take a deep dive into the latest PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings pyramid, capturing the relative bankability status of the top 70-80 PV module suppliers globally. In addition to revealing the latest ranking of global PV module suppliers, PV Tech’s Head of Research, Finlay Colville, will show the depth of analysis and commentary included within the report for module suppliers. A key output from the webinar will be to learn which PV module suppliers have moved up the rankings pyramid in recent years and why this growth has been achieved. Conversely, some of the companies that have fallen down the rankings will be discussed, in particular those suffering from market-share losses and financial problems.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
