JinkoSolar launches largest range of N-type panels in Australia


JinkoSolar said the Tiger Neo will complement the existing range of Tiger N-type panels widely used in Australia since the manufacturer first started breaking N-type records in 2019.

The company said the Tiger and Tiger Neo ranges of N-type panels, based on 163mm and 182mm cells respectively, are expected to drive JinkoSolar to market leadership in the N-type category this year in Australia.

Fresh from a successful stock market listing in Shanghai, JinkoSolar has committed to 45GW of N-type capacity, which is the strongest investment of any manufacturer globally in the N-type Topcon technology. Tiger Neo and Tiger N type form the core of JinkoSolar’s Expert Series.

Upon introduction of the Tiger Neo range, JinkoSolar recognizes the obvious benefits of N-type solar, being longer product warranties, slower rates of annual degradation, zero LID and undetectable LeTID and is proud to offer the widest range of panels with this technology. N-type’s longevity combined with Tedlar backsheet and MC4-EV02 connectors together underpin the 20 year product warranty on Tiger Neo rooftop panels (on the 60-cell and 54-cell modules).

Yet there are some less obvious benefits to the local industry in adopting N-type modules. Firstly, the warm Australian climate can easily take advantage of the lower temperature coefficient, which means Tiger Neo panels will deliver more yield for the same nameplate power, compared to P-type. Secondly, Tiger Neo opens the door to reduced packaging and reduced transport emissions, as every panel and every pallet contains more watts. Finally, most common system sizes of Tiger Neo can be installed quicker and with less mounting materials.
