SHANGHAI, Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced that its modules have received JPEC certification in Japan, following the receipt of JET and JISQ 8901 certification earlier this year. JPEC certification allows JinkoSolar modules to be used on small roof-top installations making them eligible to receive subsidies from the Japanese government. JinkoSolar is among the few non-Japanese companies to have obtained JET, JPEC, and JISQ8901 certifications.
Focused on small roof-top installations, JPEC certification is awarded by the Japan Photovoltaic Energy Association. The certification ensures that Jinkosolar modules are compatible with the local electricity grid and meet the strict safety requirements and national standards needed to be used for Japanese small roof-top installations. All of JinkoSolar's module types are covered under the certification and will allow the Company to increase its product offerings to meet the increasing demand from the Japanese market.
"JinkoSolar is among the few non-Japanese solar companies to have received JET, JPEC, and JISQ 8901 certifications. Having our modules pass the rigorous testing required for certification demonstrates the reliability and superior quality of our products. Our modules are now certified for use in a wide range of PV systems including residential and commercial rooftops, as well as ground-mounted PV plants in Japan. JPEC certification will surely open the door to new opportunities for us in the rapidly growing Japanese market. We look forward to further collaborating with our local customers and partners by providing them with the highest-quality products and services," said Mr. Kangping Chen, Chief Executive Officer of JinkoSolar.
