JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (the “Company” or “JinkoSolar”) (NYSE: JKS), one of the largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the world, today announced that it was ranked as a top solar brand in debt financied projects and named the most “bankable” PV manufacturer by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) for the sixth consecutive year. 49 solar manufacturers were ranked based on BNEF’s global survey of key PV stakeholders assessing which module brands used in projects are most likely to obtain non-recourse debt financing from commercial banks.
Survey respondents included banks, technical consultants, EPCs, and independent power producers (IPPs) from all around the world. Considering product quality, long term reliability, field deployment performance, and the manufacturer’s financial strength, 100 per cent of survey respondents considered JinkoSolar as bankable. Aligning with JinkoSolar’s high bankability score, BNEF’s database also shows that projects using JinkoSolar modules have secured more term-loan financing than any other Chinese brand all time.
“As one of the two module brands who are consecutive top performer from 2014 till 2020 nominated by BNEF confirms that JinkoSolar has been consistently the most preferred brand by customers, investors, and banks due to their reliable technology and high quality,” said Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar. “We have invested heavily, and will continue to invest, in the quality and performance of our PV modules to ensure that they can bring better returns to investors.”
