UK renewable energy retailer Midsummer has announced a new partnership with Chinese solar PV manufacturer Jinko Solar.
The latter’s Tiger N-Type All Black module is added to the Midsummer range. Further products will follow in the course of the year.
Jamie Vaux, Midsummer’s commercial director, said he was “very pleased” to welcome Jinko to their range.
“You are a global solar powerhouse with a reputation for innovation. Jinko has a fantastic range of high performance products and we believe this will be a significant addition to our extensive panel offering. Market leading warranties and a leading brand mean we expect strong sales. The customer needs are diverse and we are pleased that the choice is one of our strengths as a distributor. “
The N-Type All Black module is one of several modules in the Tiger series and uses monocrystalline half-cell technology. The panel has a 25-year guarantee and a high module efficiency of 21.22%. The tile tape is used to eliminate the cell gap and greatly increase efficiency.
The all-black aesthetic of the range allows for easier visual integration in roof applications and is therefore well suited for installations in residential areas compared to other technologies.
Jinko introduced a new addition to the Tiger range last year. The N-Type Tiger Pro module was announced at the SNEC. Hao Jin, CTO of PV Tech Jinko, explained in an interview with the sister site of Solar Power Portal the value of continuous innovation, the expansion and expansion of the range of solar modules.
Neil Smith, Country Manager for Jinko UK & Ireland, said the company was “pleased” to welcome Midsummer as a strategic distributor for Jinko Solar.
“Midsummer is one of the fastest growing distributors that is very easy to use and offers quality service in both the UK and Ireland. We trust that this collaboration will open the door to further development of the PV market.
“This partnership will enable us to continue to fulfill our commitment to offer our customers products of the highest quality and the best service, to further strengthen the solar PV industry and to further reduce CO2 emissions.”
The announcement follows Midsummer, which opens a division for renewable heating in February, which works with the heat pump manufacturers Samsung Climate Solutions, Mitsubishi Ecodan and the innovative hot water storage tank supplier Mixergy.
In December, the company, which renamed its brand and opened a new headquarters that same month, was named Wholesaler of the Year at the Solar and Storage Live Awards.
