Solar Panels Review: Jinko Solar Panels
Jinko 2020 Solar review update
It is now 2020 and we still haven’t had any issues with our Jinko solar panels we have been installing since 2013. However since our issues this year that started showing cheaper solar panels that have startd to get water in them and needed replacement from 2016, just 4 years they lasted, Jinko being a moderate Chinese panel is no longer sold. They got axed in the Chinese panel Culling.
See below, this is just from November 2020. It appears that Jinko panels are now coming in damaged and falling apart straight off the boat. I guess you can say we have timed it well. If we see the build quality improve we may one day offer to install and sell them again, but for now, no way. Take a look at that and how many others in the industry have spoken and witnessed the decline of the Jinko solar panel build quality. The quality makes for terrible Jinko solar panels reviews of late.
These panels are brand new, not even the cheapest, but turning up a lot of issueswaited 6 months after first using Jinko Solar Panels to write a Jinko Solar Panels Review. In the past 6 or so months we have been very impressed to say the least, by the performance of all solar systems we have installed that consist of Jinko Solar panels.
CURRENT JINKO SOLAR SPECIAL
We currently have a Jinko Solar special going at the moment that is proving to be too popular. It is the Jinko 260watt polycrystalline panels coupled with the German SMA inverter for just $5900!
On the odd occasion have we seen a Jinko paired with a zeversolar inverter, as the price difference between the best (German made SMA Sunnyboy inverter) and a good Chinese inverter (SMA Zeversolar) is only around $1000 these days, which equates to just a 6 month longer wait on the average return on investment for a 6kw solar system. Simply put, it’s a bit of a no-brainer to steer towards the forever tried-and-proven reliability of the German Manufactured SMA inverter.

JINKO SOLAR PANEL TESTING – CHOICE Magazine Australia
Did you know that Jinko and LG panels were the only solar panel tested by Choice Magazine that had produced at least their claimed power!!
Are Jinko a Tier 1 Solar Panel?
Jinko are a Tier 1 Solar panel Manufacturer. Let me add to this. JinkoSolar are registered on the New York Stock Exchange. You can see them at (NYSE: JKS).
Jinko Solar are not at all a ‘CHEAP CHINESE SOLAR PANEL’. They build a VERTICALLY INTEGRATED Quality Solar panel.
This means that Jinko solar panels manufacture the entire solar panel themselves. Jinko do not rely on any other company to source their components.
Jinko Solar are currently manufacturing over 2GW of wafers and Silicon, 2.5 GW of Solar cells and over 3GW of solar modules in the year ending 2014!
Jinko’s Manufacturing puts them in the top 6 solar panel companies in the world by production!
It is because of these reasons, you will find many Jinko solar panels review to highly favour the Solar product.
Jinko have well over 10,000 employees in 2015, with over 150 of these employees dedicated solely on Research and Development and working out of 11 International offices spread out all over the globe!
Jinko Solar Panels have an Australian office, and they are based out of Brisbane!
How can we not use or recommend Jinko Solar Panels?! In the EXTREMELY unlikely event that anything were to go wrong with a Jinko solar panel, both us (Qld Solar & Lighting) and our customers have piece of mind that Jinko are only a local phone call away, and have a physical office and address in Queen Street, Brisbane.
You can call Jinko on (0)7 3221 5218 or email them at email@example.com
Jinko Solar aren’t just some Chinese Solar Manufacturer with a small satellite office here in Brisbane. Not only are they also listed on the New York Stock Exchange, but they also have offices in Chile, South Africa, Japan, India, Singapore, Canada and of course the USA.

Jinko Solar Panel Quality
Not only do Jinko have the Manufacturing numbers on their side but they also make sure that they are constantly making quality in numbers!
Jinko has performed consistently well over the years in the Photon Solar tests. Photon are a company that test all different types of solar panels and inverters from manufacturers all over the globe, who send their products in and see how they all compete with one another on a level playing field.
As you can see here, Jinko are STILL pumping out impressive numbers in 2015, even with their 2011 installed solar panels! put simply, JINKO Solar panels are proving to last the distance and are superior to many of the more costly competitors!
As you can imagine, ALL our customers who have opted to use Jinko Solar Panels, and with the German SMA Solar inverter are happy Vegemites!
Jinko Solar panels can simply not be disregarded as not one the more premium solar panels that you can buy on not just the Australian market, but the Global Solar market.
Remember, if Germany is using Jinko Solar panels for mass commercial and industrial solar plants over there, in Europe. Jinko Solar panels must obviously be doing something good! Germans are known to be very judgemental and finicky when it comes to solar power technology.
