Jinko Provides The Modules At India, & Asia’s Largest Carport

Highlights :

  • A 20 MWp carport is easily the largest in Asia, and a positive trend for higher rooftop solar adoption at industries.
  • Industries are increasingly adopting solar rooftop not just for the lower carbon footprint, but also lower costs vis a vis industrial tariffs.

Jinko Solar’s Cheetah monofacial series modules have been deployed at Asia’s largest carport facility located in the northern part of India. The carport  dwarfs all other carports with its 20 MWp installed capacity – the highest in any carport across Asia.

Built by KEC International’s Solar EPC division at their customer’s factory premise. Jinko’s high efficiency panels help offset the grid consumption and facilitate EV charging as well beneath the carport. KEC International’s Solar EPC has been focused on services for large solar PV projects developed by private players and roof-top PV solutions for Industrial and Commercial consumers.

The company claims that the customer is a key automobile manufacturer that is also a leader in the domestic market. The carport houses different segments of cars once they move out of the production line at this mega factory spread across 600 acres.

The 405 Wp Jinko modules help the plant generate an estimated 30 million units of green electricity on site which helps the car manufacturer offset part of their huge power requirement with renewable energy and save on grid consumption at higher industrial tariffs. The Cheetah panel range has been one of the firm’s most popular offerings in India.

For Kinko the deal underscores its high reach and and acceptance among the rooftop and C&I clients in India. Gener Miao, CMO of JinkoSolar said, “We are proud and excited that JinkoSolar has a part to play in these cars that reach the Indian consumers through their most trusted and valued automobile brand. Our products will cater to more businesses and industries and help them move towards carbon neutrality while providing access to cheap and reliable energy.”
