JinkoSolar to Provide 35 MW to Clēnera for the Arizona Avalon Solar Project

Located in Pima County, Arizona, this large-scale solar system will be built on 500 acres of land adjacent to the Mission Mine Complex.

Shanghai, May 9, 2014 -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE:JKS), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced that it will supply 35 MW of solar PV modules to Clēnera, a leading clean energy finance and management firm, for the construction of the Avalon Solar Project. According to terms of the agreement, groundbreaking is expected to begin during the second quarter of 2014, with an anticipated completion date during the fourth quarter of 2014. Swinerton Renewable Energy will provide engineering, procurement, and construction services for the project.


Located in Pima County, Arizona, this large-scale solar system will be built on 500 acres of land adjacent to the Mission Mine Complex. The site was chosen for its compliance with an Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") program established with the objective of constructing renewable energy projects on abandoned land, including old mining sites. The project will create up to 300 construction jobs, and will generate nearly $4 million in local property tax revenue. 114,750 pieces of JinkoSolar 305W high efficiency PV modules will be used in the project, which is expected to produce enough energy to power over 7,000 homes, saving approximately 53,000 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2)—which is comparable to removing 11,000 cars from the road. The power will be sold to Tucson Electric Power Company, helping to achieve the Arizona state mandate of 15% renewable energy generation by 2025.

"Swinerton is excited to continue our successful partnership with JinkoSolar and Clēnera—both innovative leaders in renewable energy—to bring jobs and years of clean power to Arizona residents," commented George Hershman, Vice President and Division Manager of Swinerton Renewable Energy.

"We are very pleased to work with the Clēnera and Swinerton team's again on a second US project and one of the largest solar projects in Arizona," said Mr. Nigel Cockroft, JinkoSolar's US General Manager. "Our commitment to our product's quality and outstanding service has propelled us to collaborate with these industry leaders.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
