JinkoSolar has ranked as a top solar brand in debt-financed projects and named as a most “bankable” PV manufacturer by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF).
Forty-nine global solar module manufacturers were ranked based on the global BNEF survey of key PV stakeholders assessing which module brands used in projects are most likely to obtain non-recourse debt financing from commercial banks.
Survey respondents included banks, funds, engineering, procurement, and construction firms (EPCs), independent power producers (IPPs) and technical advisers involved in solar projects around the world.
The survey addressed product quality, long term reliability, field deployment performance, and the manufacturer’s financial strength.

JinkoSolar was considered highly bankable by 100% of the survey respondents. Further confirming JinkoSolar‘s high bankability score, BNEF’s data also shows that projects using JinkoSolar modules have secured more term-loan financing than any other Chinese PV brand ever.
“As one of the leading solar module manufacturers, we are proud to be recognised once again by BNEF as a most-trusted solar brand by customers, investors, and banks all over the world,” said Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar.
He added: “This is a testament to the outstanding research, stringent quality checks and world records we have set to revolutionise the solar industry with our advanced technology, reliability, and high-quality products.
Chen advised that the company has invested heavily in R&D over the years and will continue to invest in the quality, proven reliability and long-term performance of its PV modules “because we believe this will generate value and better returns for investors”.
The company is one of the largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the world with over 12,000 employees across its six productions facilities globally.
