JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd.’s JKS subsidiary,Jinko Solar Co. Ltd,recently signed a distribution generation (DG) agreement with Aldo Solar, the largest distributor in Brazil’s solar photovoltaic (PV) market. The agreement not only strengthens JinkoSolar’s partnership with Aldo Solar but also enables it to capitalize on the growing solar market of Brazil.

Details of the Agreement

Per the agreement, JinkoSolar will provide nearly 4 million photovoltaic modules in 2022, which is equivalent to 2 gigawatt (GW) of installed power. The deal provides a platform for JinkoSolar to further commercialize its Tiger Pro family of panels in the Brazil market.

Benefits of the Agreement

Apart from its well-established market in China, JinkoSolar has been consistently gaining from its deployment of solar modules spread across more than 10 countries. The aforementioned DG agreement, which is one of the largest ever signed by Jinko Solar Co. Ltd outside China, solidifies its presence in Brazil.

Moreover, the market share of 31% of Aldo Solar in the Brazilian solar market will aid JinkoSolar in capitalizing on the rapidly growing solar market of the country. It is worth mentioning here that JinkoSolar anticipates doubling its business volume primarily in the distributed generation operation in 2022. The latest agreement will surely take JinkoSolar a step closer to achieving this target. This, in turn,is likely to boost its overall top-line performance in the days ahead.
