JinkoSolar Modules Power 600 North Carolina Homes

SHANGHAI, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/  -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a leading global solar power product manufacturer, today announced that a 6.4-megawatt solar farm utilizing JinkoSolar photovoltaic (PV) modules, was completed in Robeson County, North Carolina. Built by North Carolina-based Strata Solar, the Watts solar farm is the most recent addition to Strata Solar's "southern cluster" of solar power farms in North Carolina.

Located in southern North Carolina, Robeson County is home of a group of 6.4 MW solar farms developed by Strata Solar, a leading, local solar power company. 125 local employees have been hired to facilitate the construction, installation and engineering of the six solar farms in Strata's "southern cluster."

"Watts farm is a strong example of how sustainability has transformed into a mainstream, economic force across this state," said Markus Wilhelm, CEO of Strata Solar. "Strata Solar and JinkoSolar will work together to foster environmental responsibility and bring clean energy and employment growth to North Carolina through this new solar farm."

Approximately 20,654 JinkoSolar 240-watt poly panels have been installed on the 55-arce Watts solar farm. JinkoSolar panels will transfer energy to the grid to generate enough electricity to power 600 homes.

" Robeson County has now become a home for large scale solar development with the addition of Strata Solar's Watts solar farm," said Arturo Herrero, Chief Marketing Officer of JinkoSolar. "We are pleased to partner with Strata Solar on the development of this landmark solar project in North Carolina. We remain committed to delivering the highest quality solar modules and customer service to our US customers through our local team in San Francisco."
