JinkoSolar Signs A Supply Agreement For 115 MW In South Africa

SHANGHAI, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a leading global solar PV power product manufacturer, today announced that it has entered into a module supply agreement with a well-recognized solar project developer (the "Developer") to deliver a total of 115 megawatts (MW) of its high-efficiency solar panels for two projects in South Africa. The projects will be developed, designed, constructed and commissioned by the Developer. This module supply agreement will also serve as a general terms and conditions under which the Developer may purchase from JinkoSolar additional solar panels for other projects worldwide in a three year period.

Both projects are part of Phase 2 South African IPP Procurement Program. The first project will consist of a total of 75 MW while the second project will consist of 40 MW.

"We are extremely pleased to sign another large, long-term contract and to further extend our presence in South Africa, one of the fastest growing solar markets in the world," commented Arturo Herrero, Chief Marketing Officer of JinkoSolar. "JinkoSolar has been very successful in winning contracts in South Africa thanks to the trust from our customers and local banks, in both the first and second phases. South Africa, with its abundance of sunshine, rapid economic growth and governmental support, is one of the most important emerging markets for JinkoSolar.

"Our local presence, bankability and our partnership with developers in South Africa has boosted our reputation in the market as a long-term reliable and trustworthy partner in renewable energy development. And we look forward to the completion of these two projects and the opportunities for further cooperation during phase 3, making solar power increasingly cost competitive in South Africa," added Arturo Herrero.
