JinkoSolar 1500-Volt Eagle Modules Available for Delivery in North America Following UL 1703 Certification

SHANGHAI and WILMINGTON, Del., April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar"), a global leader in the photovoltaic (PV) industry, today announced that its 1500-volt Eagle PV modules, manufactured with its strategic partner DuPont's™ Tedlar® polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) film-based backsheets, have received UL1703 certification by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Following certification, the modules have immediately become available for use in solar energy installations across North America. With its modules now in the market, JinkoSolar will be able to meet the growing demand for higher-voltage systems, which lower overall costs, reduce levelized cost of energy, and enable a better return on investment.

JinkoSolar's 1500-volt Eagle modules pass potential induced degradation tests at 85 degrees Celsius and 85% relative humidity and are protected by DuPont™ Tedlar® PVF film-based backsheets. The Eagle module is a framed panel compatible with commonly used racking and tracking systems in the North America market. DuPont™ Tedlar® is the only backsheet material proven to protect solar panels in the field for more than 30 years in harsh environmental conditions such as desert, jungle, coastal, and mountain climates.

"DuPont™ Tedlar® PVF film-based backsheets offer the optimal balance of weatherability, adhesion, and mechanical strength--properties required for long module lifetime. They provide extended durability and electrical insulation, which make them ideal components for JinkoSolar's 1500-volt Eagle modules, now poised to accelerate the growth of the North American PV market," said Alex Bradley, Principal Investigator, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions.

"JinkoSolar has quickly become the brand of choice for utility-scale installations due to our high quality modules and unmatched after sales services. I...
