JinkoSolar 1500-Volt Eagle Modules are now available for delivery in North America


JinkoSolar has announced that its 1500-volt Eagle PV modules, manufactured with its strategic partner DuPont’s Tedlar polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) film-based backsheets, have received UL1703 certification by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Soon after the certification, the modules have been made available for use in solar energy installations across North America.

The company in a statement notes that now when the modules are in the market, the company will be able to meet the growing demand for higher-voltage systems, which lower overall costs, reduce leveled cost of energy, and enable a better return on investment.

JinkoSolar’s 1500-volt Eagle modules pass potential induced degradation tests at 85 degrees Celsius and 85% relative humidity and are protected by DuPont Tedlar PVF film-based backsheets. The Eagle module is a framed panel compatible with commonly used racking and tracking systems in the North America market. According to the company DuPont Tedlar is the only backsheet material which is capable to protect solar panels in the field for more than 30 years in harsh environmental conditions such as desert, jungle, coastal, and mountain climates.

DuPont Tedlar PVF film-based backsheets offer the optimal balance of weatherability, adhesion, and mechanical strength—properties required for long module lifetime.  They provide extended durability and electrical insulation, which make them ideal components for JinkoSolar’s 1500-volt Eagle modules, now poised to accelerate the growth of the North American PV market,” said Alex Bradley, Principal Investigator, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions.

JinkoSolar has quickly become the brand of choice for utility-scale installations due to our high quality modules and unmatched after sales services. I believe that JinkoSolar’s 1500-volt Eagle modules are by far one of the most robust products in the North American market, especially with DuPont Tedlar backsheets. These high quality modules are yet another step in our effort to provide customers with the best technology and proven, reliable, and cost-effective products,” said Nigel Cockroft, General Manager of JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc.
