About Jinko

Jinko is a Chinese solar panel manufacturer, founded in 2006 and listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 2010. Headquartered in Shanghai, Jinko has become respected for its budget friendly panels and produces huge volumes globally - having surpassed a milestone of 200gW of solar panels shipped (yes, giga-watts!) in November 2023

Are Jinko Solar Panels High Quality?

Unlike many value brands, we would recommend Jinko if your budget can’t stretch to more premium solar panel brands like REC. Jinko solar panels perform well for their price point, and are backed up by a decent warranty.

For a value brand, Jinko has a strong focus on quality, having stacked up a whole bunch of certifications and awards - including being awarded as a top performer in PV Evolution Labs PV Module Reliability Scorecard again in 2023.

Is Jinko a Well Supported Solar Panel Brand in Australia?

Jinko is well represented in Australia, with the solar panel manufacturer having a local head office for sales and support in Sydney, as well as a steadily-growing network of accredited solar installers that use and recommend their panels.

Jinko solar panels are also distributed by a number of large solar wholesalers throughout Australia, meaning they’re a proven performer after installation in all Australian conditions.

About Jinko Tiger NEO N-Type Solar Panels

The Tiger NEO N-Type is one of the latest Jinko models on the market. Now with a beefy 475W rating, you can more easily achieve a total system size from fewer panels. For instance, a 6.65kW system would only be 14x panels, as opposed to 15-17x panels being required with a lower power class rating panel.

Whilst it does have a black frame, the Jinko Tiger Neo is not strictly an 'all black' panel.
