JinkoSolar Partners With Edisun Microgrids To Develop Eagle PowerTrack™ Bundle For C&I Rooftop Solar Projects
SHANGHAI and LOS ANGELES: JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar”), one of the world’s largest solar module manufacturers, and Edisun Microgrids, Inc. (Edisun), a solar technology company that develops patented, distributed solar and energy storage technologies, today announced a partnership to develop the Eagle PowerTrack, a performance bundle for commercial and industrial (C&I) rooftops. The new performance bundle will feature JinkoSolar’s high-efficiency Eagle G2 modules in combination with Edisun’s PV Booster (“PV Booster”) breakthrough rooftop tracking technology. The new performance bundle will be available for sale during the fourth quarter of 2018.
By integrating JinkoSolar’s Eagle G2 modules with Edisun’s PV Booster rooftop tracker, solar contractors will be able to unlock the enormous market opportunity in commercial and industrial rooftop installations. The performance bundle leverages JinkoSolar’s Eagle G2 modules which feature the company’s new Diamond cell technology, a brand new high-efficiency mono PERC cell that allows 72-cell Eagle G2 modules to reach up to 400 watts. Edisun’s PV Booster rooftop tracker offers contractors a flexible system design, more energy harvested per panel, and real-time data for predictive operations and maintenance. When combined, the Eagle PowerTrack performance bundle yields 30 percent more energy per panel, resulting in notably lower levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) and significantly increases return on investment over traditional C&I systems. In addition, the Eagle PowerTrack’s simplicity, high levels of energy generation, and improved economics will enable solar contractors to bid and win more business.
“We are excited to work with Edisun in developing and launching the Eagle PowerTrack performance bundle,” said Mr. Nigel Cockroft, general manager, JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc. “Edisun’s PV Booster is a unique product that, combined with our modules, transforms a commercial rooftop segment with much unrealized potential.”
“JinkoSolar’s scale, financial strength, and high-powered modules are ideal fits for our company and product, and should make the Eagle PowerTrack the preferred solution for C&I rooftops,” said Mr. Conrad Chase, vice president, business development, Edisun Microgrids. “Pairing the world’s best-selling module with the industry’s only rooftop tracker creates a new innovation that is finally addressing the needs of the C&I market.”
