JinkoSolar, one of the largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the world, has won a Top Performer award for the 5th consecutive year in the 2019 PV Module Reliability Scorecard, published by PVEL in partnership with DNV GL, the company has announced in a statement.
The PV Module Reliability Scorecard, ranking PV modules and manufacturers using independent test data, is considered one of the most comprehensive publicly available comparisons of PV module reliability test results.
As part of PVEL’s PQP (Product Quality Program) report, the results presented in the 2019 Scorecard were independently tested in the past 18 months. The Top Performers selected were modules that exhibited less than 2% degradation for the entirety of the test sequence.
Being recognized as a Top Performer demonstrates a manufacturer’s commitment to product quality, the JinkoSolar statement noted.
