Photon Power has chosen JinkoSolar as the primary module supplier for the first phase of its new PV portfolio. Jinko has agreed to supply up to 2.84MW of crystalline modules, and the first batch of 515kW has already been shipped.
Earlier this month, the two companies completed their first joint project, a 219.3kW rooftop system at the Technology Center (TZA) in Aachen, Germany. Around 860 of Jinko’s modules, spanning 1,500 square metres, will make up the array and generate around 180,000kWh of electricity per annum. This year, Photon Power plans to install projects totalling up to 8MW.
“JinkoSolar was the top crystalline module manufacturer in our tender, offering the best price-to-power ratio for its product,” Photon board member Ralf Heuser said. “We're pleased that JinkoSolar's modules will assist us in our efforts to lower the costs of PV power plants around the world.”
“Being granted the opportunity to align ourselves with a reputable organisation like Photon further validates JinkoSolar's commitment to developing quality, cost-competitive solar products,” added Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar. “We are looking forward to additional Photon Power projects with JinkoSolar modules.”
