As a world-leading manufacturer by volume, not all Jinko solar panels should be considered a good option. With an extensive range, it is vital to acknowledge the selected models which present themselves when shopping for Jinko solar panels as part of your solar energy system.

INSIDE!

Traditionally a mass volume solar module manufacturer of affordable solar panel options, Jinko is now becoming respected as a market innovator after successfully claiming the InterSolar Award 2019 (Swan Bifacial) and InterSolar Award Finalist 2020 (Jinko Tiger N-Type). 

Market dominance and innovations of such products are further distancing Jinko solar panels from the entry-level stigma, which has accompanied the brand over many years. Understanding there is an expansive range of Jinko solar panel options, many initial questions come to mind when researching including which to potential Jinko solar panels to avoid…

Which to avoid?

Residential homeowners should potentially avoid Jinko’s InterSolar Award-Winning solar panel of 2019. One particular variant of this model that is, the JKM380-400M-72H-TV. Rest assured, there is no issue with the module in general. However, the overall dimensions are not ideal in a residential scenario, much like alternative 72-cell+ (144-half cut) Jinko solar panels.

Even though the higher watt class for the price is appealing, understand that 72-cell solar panels occupy the same surface area in a system when compared to their 60-cell counterparts.

Note: Even though a current 60-cell solar panel, the Jinko Tiger Pro increases the overall cell wafer size which increases the overall surface area. The increased surface area has a less than desirable effect on the overall module weight. As a guide, residential range solar panels should rarely exceed 22kg.

Jinko Solar Panels InterSolar Award 2019

Which to consider?

Through eliminating the alternative Jinko solar panels designed primarily for commercial installations,  Jinko solar panels Perth customers seek are narrowed down by half (nice work!). From this point, understanding the budget and available surface area for system size will ultimately determine the ideal Jinko solar panel for the task.

It’s not all doom and gloom for Jinko’s new darling the Swan. One particular Jinko Swan variant remains an option to be considered. However, potentially best suited for tilted solar arrays only for the added expense.

Where are they made?

Listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: JKS) and a prolific member of the Silicon Modules Super League, Jinko operates multiple manufacturing plants internationally. However, the solar panels received in Australia are derived from Jinko’s fully automated manufacturing facilities in China.

As manufacturing modules are only one element of the process, Jinko solar cell manufacturing occurs in Jinko plants across both China and Malaysia.

As a sign of strength and specifically for the North American market, Jinko, as of 2019 have begun manufacturing solar modules from a newly constructed $50 million plant in Jacksonville, Florida (USA).
