Spotlight shines on NZ as manufacturer makes “major solar breakthrough”

“It is a great honour and a testament to our product quality for us to be chosen as the supplier for these model projects in the region."

JA Solar, one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, claims to have made a “major breakthrough” in the South Pacific market during the past twelve months, including further work in New Zealand.

As supplier for several national solar projects in New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea, the company says it has received “strong customer feedback and praise” for the strong performance of its modules.

Most of these solar projects are the first in their respective regions, setting a leading benchmark for the region's solar industry development.

"Local climate conditions such as wind and high temperature require high PID-resistance, high mechanical load and better low-light performance for modules,” says Yong Liu, CTO, JA Solar.

“Our modules, known for their high reliability, high conversion efficiency and high power output, can adapt well to South Pacific climate and reduce per watt power generation costs to the utmost.

“It is a great honour and a testament to our product quality for us to be chosen as the supplier for these model projects in the region."

The 350KW Auckland Shopping Centre Project is currently the single largest solar installation in New Zealand, heralded as a major step in the development of clean energy by the New Zealand government.

Meanwhile the 1.96MW Tuvalu Islands Project is the first local clean renewable energy off-grid system established by the New Zealand government.

"As the first projects of their kind in the region, these model projects are of great significance in terms of developing clean and renewable energy, protecting ecological environment, upgrading power supply structure and accelerating the sustainable development of the economy in the region,” adds Jian Xie, president, JA Solar.

“This breakthrough in the South Pacific region is a new milestone in our effort to expand globally into new markets and reflects our ever-growing global influence."
