JinkoSolar, one of the world’s largest solar module manufacturers, has been recognized as a Top Performer on DNV GL’s 2018 PV Module Reliability Scorecard for the fourth consecutive year, the company announced in a statement.
DNV GL tested over 300 bills of material (BOM) for more than 50 module manufacturers. Testing focused on four major aspects including thermal cycling, damp heat, dynamic mechanical load and potential induced degradation. The data derived from the testing creates an ideal resource for financiers, developers and independent power producers to make better business decisions when selecting PV modules.
