JinkoSolar Supplies 29.7kW Of Panels For Aquarion Water Company

SHANGHAI, March 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ --  JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the  "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a fast-growing, vertically integrated solar power product manufacturer based in China, today announced the successful completion of a 35.8kW tracker-based solar system at the Aquarion Water Company's ("Aquarion") D.W. Loiselle Water Treatment Plant at Trap Falls Reservoir in Shelton, Connecticut. This project utilizes 29.7kW of JinkoSolar's PV modules in conjunction with OPEL Solar's utility scale tracker to offset the power Aquarion purchases from the local utility for their operations.

"It is very gratifying to partner with OPEL Solar so we can supply our panels to a company like Aquarion that shares our same insistence on performance and sustainability, and we are proud to have a hand in the wider implementation of solar in mainstream utility sites in the U.S.," said Arturo Herrero Chief Marketing Officer of JinkoSolar. "We look forward to partnering with OPEL Solar for future projects and will continue to pursue similar ventures where the cost savings guaranteed by our high-performance modules validate the true value of adopting clean renewable energy."

"This is the second project where OPEL has used JinkoSolar PV panels in conjunction with OPEL's own utility scale tracker," said Frank Middleton, COO of OPEL Solar Inc. "Jinko's PV modules have proven to be of good quality and their performance in delivering product on time has been excellent."

Aquarion, a privately owned water utility in Connecticut, expects the installation to help offset the energy required to operate the water treatment facility.

"We have been working diligently on a series of measures to reduce the company's carbon footprint and are extremely pleased with the completed project. We are proud that our successful installation can serve as a catalyst and inspiration for other companies considering the move into solar tracking projects to offset their energy usage," says Charles V. Firlotte, President and CEO of Aquarion Water Company.
