JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd. says several of its solar modules now meet the requirements of the California Energy Commission (CEC). The products have thus been added to the list of S.B.1 guidelines-compliant photovoltaic modules eligible for finance and project incentives in the state of California, Hawaii and some other states in the U.S.
The CEC, which specifies criteria for compliant PV modules, conducts stringent PV module tests on module power, voltage, current, irradiance and operating temperature. The CEC's PV module requirements are standard practice for solar companies in California and recognized by Hawaii and some other states in the U.S. as one of the highest PV module standards, according to JinkoSolar.
‘With our UL certification and CEC eligibility, we can access the entire U.S. market, which will allow us to further develop our overseas business,’ says Xiande Li, chairman of the board of directors at JinkoSolar.
The certified modules are the JKMXXXM-72 (XXX=175-185W), JKMXXXM-60 (220-240W) and JKMXXXP-60 (220-240W).
