JinkoSolar Holding Co. officially launched its 2020 flagship Tiger Pro module series this week during a virtual event. The Tiger Pro series has been hotly anticipated by utility-scale developers and investors because of its max power output of 580 Wp.
“The global PV market is rapidly moving towards high-performance modules to reduce system costs and initial upfront capital investment, so it was time to consolidate our competitiveness by leveraging our ability to rapidly begin mass producing cutting-edge products,” said Kangping Chen, JinkoSolar’s Chief Executive Officer.
Slated to commence mass production in the third quarter of 2020, the series is expected to lead the development trend of the industry, and become a mainstream choice for utility scale projects.

Behind the numbers
The 580 Wp output is 40% higher than current mainstream products installed in utility projects.
All these high energy density modules use innovative multi-wire 9BB and TR tiling ribbon technology to reach significantly improved performance with conversion efficiency up to 21.6%.
Other advantages of the Tiger Pro module series include lower power attenuation rate (at 2% for the first year) and better open-circuit voltage.
By greatly reducing LCOE compared to traditional modules, the high-efficiency Tiger Pro module series paves the way for investors to generate higher power output.
“We always modify our designs based on customer feedback and market response because designing high-efficiency products in the lab is one thing, but ramping up to mass production drives the entire industry forward together towards grid parity,” Chen said. “With various types of modules, Tiger Pro series enables the construction of more powerful and efficient solar power farms that will bring higher return on investment for projects with larger technical and efficiency requirements.”
