JinkoSolar enters module supply agreement with Con Edison

JinkoSolar is continuing to expand its reach in global solar markets with a supply deal with New York State-based, owner and operator of utility-scale renewable projects, Consolidated Edison Development. This most recent deal will see the company supply its high-efficiency modules to Con Edison projects across the U.S.

Jinko will be supplying approximately 560 MW of its 72-cell modules to Con Edison, in a deal which should stretch through to August 2017. It is a testament to the high regard that the Chinese manufacturer enjoys in various global PV markets, with shipments to Con Edison’s projects already underway.

“JinkoSolar has a clear understanding of the energy marketplace in which we operate,” commented Con Edison Development President and CEO Mark Noyes. “It is important that our company continuously improves solar system efficiency in order to remain competitive with other energy sources. JinkoSolar’s product roadmap and operational excellence are perfect fits for our company.”

Jinko has been making its presence felt in other regional markets, as it looks to take advantage of the various solar booms that are taking place at the moment. Just last month the company signed three significant PPAs for 188 MW of solar projects in neighboring Mexico.

“We are proud to have reached another significant milestone through this supply agreement with Con Edison Development,” said JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc. general manager Nigel Cockroft. “JinkoSolar’s strong momentum in the U.S. solar industry is a direct result of our company’s dedication to reliability in both modules performance and customer support.”
