Tiger Neo Module Features:

  • Excellent low light performance- Tiger Neo has great performance under low light conditions, which means in morning and sunset, in cloudy or not directly south orientation, Tiger Neo will deliver higher output.  
  • Improved high-temperature performance- Tiger Neo panels slowly lose their ability to generate power as they get hotter, thanks to its much lower temperature co-efficient to other modules.  
  • Increased power generation- Tiger Neo, adopting n-type cell technology, increases panel efficiency, giving more power per panel and more kWh per KWp.
  • Enhanced performance warranty- Tiger Neo series comes with an enhanced performance warranty. After 30 years of use, the Tiger Neo is guaranteed to provide at least 87.4% of initial performance.  
  • Low LID- The Light Induced Degradation (LID) and LeTID of Tiger Neo is extremely low when compared with the standard P-type cells.
  • Track record and proven field performance- JinkoSolar has been involved in delivering 100GW of quality panels to over 170 countries, more than any of other brands to date. It gives you peace of mind solar panels that exceed customer expectations.
