JASO Increases Conversion Efficiency Of Cypress Series Solar Cells In Large-Volume Production

SHANGHAI, China, Sept. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq:JASO) ("JA Solar" or the "Company"), one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today announced that the average conversion efficiency of its high-efficiency monocrystalline and multicrystalline Cypress solar cells in large-volume production has reached 19.1% and 17.4%, respectively. This compares to an industry average of 18.8% and 17.0% for monocrystalline and multicrystalline solar cells, respectively.

Within the Company's Cypress series, its 6-inch full square monocrystalline solar modules and 6-inch standard monocrystalline modules now generate a power output of 280W and 270W, respectively, while its 6-inch multicrystalline solar modules now produce a power output of 260W. Each of the three Cypress series modules produces a power output between 5W and 10W above the industry average.

In addition to superior photoelectric conversion efficiency, Cypress series cells also feature excellent solder ability and lower encapsulation power loss resulting from high-voltage, low-current electrical performance parameters, elaborated current rating, and positive tolerance for cell power compensation.

To date, the Company has shipped over 300MW of its Cypress cells, including over 100MW to external customers.

"We are delighted to have made yet another breakthrough with our Cypress series, as we continue to find innovative ways to service the market demand for high-quality, high-efficiency solar products," said Dr. Peng Fang, CEO of JA Solar. "By offering higher conversion efficiency without increasing the cost of cells, the Cypress cells further help to reduce the cost of modules on a per watt basis by ensuring a high power output. Customers are responding very well to this compelling value proposition, and we're confident that our continued focus on pushing technological boundaries will drive continued growth."
