- JinkoSolar has launched a new n-type module series called Tiger Neo Modules, which is available in 2 variants of mono facial and bifacial
- Extending its Tiger series module technology, the module is built with n-type TOPCon cells in half cell configuration employing MBB interconnection layout
- The latest Tiger Neo series comes with up to up to 22.3% efficiency and up to 620W power output
- The modules will cater to large-scale utility, industrial and commercial distributed generation, and residential applications
- JinkoSolar will talk about its latest solar module technology at the TaiyangNews’ Solar Module Innovations Conference – For Building & Utility Scale Power Plant Applications on Nov. 15/16, 2021
JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. has launched a new series of its Tiger modules terming it the next-generation N-type ultra-efficiency 2021 Flagship Tiger Neo Modules with up to 620W power output in mass production, and up to 22.3% power conversion efficiency, based on 182 mm wafer size. However, the company already presented a prototype of the module series at the SNEC 2021 show with a power rating of 625 W and efficiency of 22.86% (see SNEC 2021 Shows Spurt Of N-Type Modules).
“The new Tiger Neo flagship series was designed to meet the needs of large-scale utility, industrial and commercial distributed generation, and residential applications,” said JinkoSolar’s CEO Kangping Chen. “Through the advantages of the N-type TOPCon technology, customers can invest in more efficient, more reliable, and more profitable PV systems.”
Tiger Neo module with N-type TOPCon technology offers about 5% to 6% more efficiency than mono PERC, according to JinkoSolar and close to 3% to 4% more energy generation. It comes with multi busbar (MBB) and half-cut technology with circular solder strip design that pushes up its overall efficiency.
The new module comes in 2 variants of a mono facial panel that weighs 31.2 kg, and the other variant is a bifacial module with dual glass weighing 34 kg. For both the variants, JinkoSolar has used 156 (2 x 78) N-type monocrystalline cells.
The Chinese company is offering 12-year product warranty and 30-year linear power warranty, claiming 0.40% annual degradation over 30 years for both the variants.
Compared to conventional P-type bifacial modules, Tiger Neo has between 5% to 15% higher energy yield, leading to the module sporting bifacial factor of up to 85%. The creators also claim 3% higher energy yield for the new offering compared to mainstream P-type bifacial modules.
