Ltd. (Nasdaq:JASO), ("JA Solar" or the "Company"), one of the world's
largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today
announced that it has launched its new 6-inch full-square monocrystalline
module series. The modules have been certified by TUV Rheinland, one of the
world's leading providers of technical services, as having a maximum
conversion efficiency of 16.82% and a maximum power output of 275W. JA Solar
will commence mass production of the new product offering this month.

With the adoption of JA Solar's high-efficiency 6-inch full-square
monocrystalline solar cells and proprietary module encapsulation
technologies, the new 6-inch full-square modules produce a mainstream power
