Jinko Solar - Solar Panel Reviews

Finn's Jinko Solar Panels Review & Verdict

Finn Peacock has been a Chartered Electrical Engineer since 1998, and is ex-CSIRO

Jinko Solar panels are good quality, well-priced panels from one of the largest manufacturers on the planet. Importantly for Australians, Jinko have a strong Australian presence with a well-staffed local office and good Australian support.

Jinko is a big company with solid R&D (research & development) resources. Their latest "Tiger" panels are some of the most efficient available with efficiencies up to 21.53% - anything over 21% is a world class.

When I surveyed Australian installers in 2021 and in 2022, they rated Jinko as the second best budget panels on the market. 

But be careful: because Jinko panels are relatively low cost, they can sometimes be offered by retailers who are operating towards the bottom of the market. A good solar power system needs a lot more than a good brand of solar panels. A high quality installation is crucial.

Jinko solar panels, well installed, should offer decades of cheap energy. Jinko panels, badly installed, will not.

Jinko Solar Panels: Pros & Cons

  • Good quality control - Jinko own the entire production process from making the silicon ingots right through to assembling the panels.
  • High efficiency - Jinko technology offers some of the highest efficiencies of any manufacturer, with some models over 21% efficient.
  • Billion dollar company
  • Strong Australian presence
  • Strong brand that the company will want to protect
  • Well-priced
  • Sometimes used by shonky solar retailers
  • Warranty shorter than some premium brands.
  • Jinko's financial stabillity has been rated as "at-risk" by SinoVoltaics

About Jinko Solar

Jinko Solar is a Chinese company producing tier 1 panels. The company has a physical Australian office in Sydney, offering local support if you have a problem - and that's a very good thing. But you shouldn't need to use it as generally speaking Jinko solar panels have proven to be a cost effective combination of reliability and price. The company also has dedicated warehouse facilities in Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

Company History In Brief

Jinko was founded as a company in 2006. I don't think they actually made anything that year, but I have to presume they were thinking really hard about making stuff. Other highlights from the company's early days were the production of ingots (big solid lumps of silicon) in 2007, slicing ingots into wafers in 2008, using those wafers to make cells and solar panels in 2009, then a stock market listing in 2010.

Since that time, the company has grown at a ferocious rate.

But a black mark in the company's history occurred in 2011, when hundreds of people protesting fish killed by a chemical spill in a nearby river stormed the Jinko factory in Haining City. Company cars were overturned, offices were trashed, and riot police were called in to stop the toxic avengers.

On a related note, an organisation called the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition, or SVTC, used to produce an annual report ranking solar panel manufacturers on environmental and social responsibility.

In 2014 Jinko was given a score of 7 out of 100. Then in 2015, the company came 14th out of 40 companies surveyed, with a score of 53 out of 100. This was not a great result, but it was a huge improvement. But  in 2018-19, the company was ranked no.1 by SVTC, with a perfect score of 100. SVTC doesn't appear to have published scorecards since that year.

So, Jinko Solar came a long way in a short time - and if they have a factory in your town I am sure they are far less likely to kill all the fish in the local river than they used to. Walking the solar talk, JinkoSolar has also pledged to power its own operations with 100% renewable electricity by 2025.

Manufacturing Locations And Capacity

Jinko Solar has seven production facilities in China and one each in Malaysia and the USA. In September 2021, the company announced its intentions to also build an ingot factory in Vietnam.

Last year, the company forecast its annual mono wafer, cell and solar module production capacity would have reached 32.5 GW, 24 GW and 45 GW respectively by the end of 2021.

While a few years back (2019) JinkoSolar was ranked the number one manufacturer in terms of panel shipment volume, in 2021 it was sitting at number 4 according to solar PV market intelligence and research firm PV InfoLink, after achieving number 2 in 2020.

Jinko's workforce had remained fairly constant at around 15,000 for several years while its production capacity had doubled. That's the way things go these days thanks to automation and robotics. But it appears to have added a bunch more staff in recent years, with a couple of estimates putting the number of employees at more than 24,000.

General JinkoSolar Panel Info

Among the Jinko solar panels currently sold in Australia are the Cheetah and Tiger product lines available in various wattages and efficiencies ranging from around 19% to 21.5%.

The higher the panel efficiency, the less roof space a system will take up. For most installations this is not a problem, but some people have a limited amount of room to install solar panels. Unlike some other manufacturers, the efficiencies Jinko gives for their panels are accurate and they don't cheat by not including the panel's frame in the efficiency calculation. That is appreciated.

Like many manufacturers these days, Jinko is focusing on producing panels with "half-cut cells"; which offer benefits including better partial shade tolerance.

All the panels they currently ship to Australia are salt mist corrosion resistant and suitable for installation in any location. Jinko panels generally carry a 12 year product warranty, but some models have 20 years.

Warranty Procedure For Orphaned Jinko Customers

If you have purchased Jinko panels from a solar installer who has since gone out of business, the responsibility for warranty claims shifts to JinkoSolar. Their customer service line in Australia is 1300 326 182 - affected customers should contact this line for warranty assistance.

Jinko have advised that customers will be asked to send through photos and serial numbers of affected panels to an email address that they will provide, and they will then arrange for the replacement of the panels. If required, Jinko will be able to recommend installers to carry out the work if a customer is unable to organise one themselves. They will also reimburse customers for labour costs involved with replacing the solar panels - $200 for the first panel, and $15 for each additional module.

Jinko Solar Panels Are A Cost Effective Choice

Jinko Solar panels offer a combination of good reliability and competitive pricing that can make them a very cost effective choice for home solar installations in Australia.

I have found since installing the solor panels on the roof, 6 of the 36 panels installed virtually underneath to the T.V antenna, it interfered with my Televisions in the house and when the sun come up i will lose some channels and would had to re-programme the t.v's in the evening.

Unfortunatley i had no where else on the roof span to re-position the antena for the reception i required, my only alternative was to install on this occurred on two separate occasions new antenna, had to settle with the most stronger Antenna for the same position, thus incurring a extra cost to myself and during my conversation with the antenna installer, he had advised me, he has come across numerous complaints regarding this same matter and many Customers have pursued with the Companies to absorb at least half the cost, of which they have agreed, something i havent yet pursued to date, but will do prior to my full settlement in 3 months time and certaintly hope Greenlink come to the party and feel this issue of solar interferring with T.V antenna reception, will need to be raised to Customers of a potential problem.

I am now trying to find the best Energy retailer for our Solar system.
New to all this, I have found that my Energy provider has me on peak rates without informing me.
Being a loyal long time customer of this Australian Company I am very unhappy about this. What can I do?

I have been using your Energy Provider selection tool but prices are changing very quickly right now. I am also looking at Solar Analytics who you recommend highly. Cost at this time is a factor.
Are there any real time Solar panel diagnostics systems available that do not use Power inverters or micro inverters ?

Thank you for your website , I have looked at many of your videos and most of your information and I have found it invaluable. It is excellent.

We haven’t paid a power bill since 2006, in fact we have become energy suppliers. As a family of four living in Katoomba NSW, you might think that our solar yield would be minimal – not so!

A decade ago we installed a 1 kW system (6 Trina panels) with a 2kW inverter, installing a further 6 panels when finances permitted about 18 months later. We used a local company Aussie Solar for both jobs. What we didn’t realize at the time was that a generous start-up rebate was available (we paid only $2,000 for the initial $10,000 installation) and a further $2000 for the upgrade. All energy was sold to the grid. Our decision wasn’t based on a payback period, on the contrary, we want to encourage the uptake of alternative energy. Similarly living on the driest continent in the world, we installed water tanks to supply our house, which will never cover the cost of their purchase. The water tastes great though, as does using your own solar-generated power, now that we've upgraded to battery storage!

It’s not so much the panels which appear to be operating pretty well when I observe them on my solar edge app. It’s about the fact that I was sold optimisers which added $5k - $6k onto my 9.9kw system( total cost was approx $14.5k in October 2018.) well there is not a tree, power line , vent pipe or aerial within cooeee, of my panels, and there is little chance there ever will be. That additional cost will take at least several years to recoup through the panels. Also the system could have been about 3kw bigger over two phases (even though I would have lost some kwhours on highly productive days due to the 5kw limit per phase to put back in which would have given a much quicker payback) Much wiser these days, to the benefit of some friends who have installed solar. At the time of purchase I was also not aware that the system has to be inspected every 5 years. Another cost!

We chose the Jinko Cheetah Plus 370 W mono as this panel in combination with the Enphase IQ7+ microinverters gave us a bit more energy than what our energy bills showed. I must say that the projections from All Green's quotes for the month of Nov have been exceeded already. They were projecting on average that we will get 57 KwH a day for Nov, and in good sunny days we've hit figures on the high 70 KwH range. Even with our 20Kw Daikin on, we were still exporting energy back to the grid!

In saying this, I guess it will all even out in winter when the energy harvest will be lower. Still remains to be seen if we can still exceed the average energy quoted.

I have been monitoring the use of the panels on a daily basis and on a clear summer day, I am making between 37 and 42 kw for the day. Based on my 10.1c rebate, my power bill has reduced significantly and the last account I received I was in credit so a good move to put on a 6.6kw system. I have now changed my plan from a 29%pay on time discount with a 10.1 cent rebate to a 21c rebate and no pay on time discount since I may not be paying again for some time. I think this is a good move too as I expect to have enough credits to carry me over the winter period when the panels wont be generating quite as much power.

The Tiger Pro panels are performing well. They have been installed predominantly on the North-facing roof with no obstruction of sunlight. The team also installed 8 panels facing West and these are producing a kilowatt of power at 6pm in the evening.

Obviously it is way too soon to conclude as to how long the panels will perform within specs, but with a 3 year pay-back period I am not at all concerned about whether they last the 20 year warranty period. (I am not confident confident that I would be able to enforce a warranty claim from a Chinese or Korean Panel manufacturer in 20 years)

I love the panels. Our installer upgraded us because they didn’t have the quotes ones in stock at the time (at no extra cost), and I’ll get the same or even better panels on the shed, when it’s built. There’s only one thing… our roof is terracotta tiled, and while the installer was super careful (they were a team of featherweight girls), wind-loading later cracked a tile in way of one clamp. I’m not sure it could have been avoided, and it’s no longer a common material (beautiful but impractical these days), so I’m chalking it up to experience.

Due to our location and the direction of our house we have very little roof area that faces north. A large north facing roof would have been ideal but that's life. Our panels were placed so that there are 7 panels on the east side and 3 panels facing north making up one circuit. Another 13 panels face west on a second circuit . The panels seem to be performing well and small areas of shade don't affect the performance of the overall system too much.
I would not say these are the most efficient panels on the market but they are good for the price that you pay.

Panels have performed extremely well - they were placed really well on our roof, and capture morning and afternoon sun very effectively.

This is solar 101, so not a knock on the panels at all - but worth being aware that any shade at all, even on a part of a single panel, can have significant impact on the output on your system. A few months after installation, I cut a tree right back that I thought was NOT encroaching significantly, and my solar output immediately jumped by 30%. I would highly recommend these panels in a completely unshaded area.

Panels have a raised boarder (like a picture frame). Most of my panels were installed horizontally, so when it rains a puddle forms on each panel. If there is any dust around I am left with dirt on the panels, once the water has evaporated, whenever it rains. I have to wash the panels after most rain storms. The glass on 1 panel shattered when I was washing it (panel probably too hot?).
I feel that these panels are not suitable for horizontal mounting and that the provider should have known this and recommended a different style of panel.

Mine are 290W panels. There are higher power panels available and a neighbour bought some 320W panels with matching higher power micro-inverters at the same time as me but he only gets the benefit of that for a couple of hours a day around midday for a couple of months in summer. From Autumn to Spring he gets no more power per panel than mine due to reduced solar intensity in those months. Overall benefit for the extra dollars is therefore questionable. Better off spending the extra money on more panels.

Jinko wasn’t my first choice for panels however other brands had a different physical shape and would not not on my roof evenly. Aus Solar Energy were able to suggest and demonstrate to me how the Jinko 330W panels would be arranged evenly, maintaining the symmetry of the property which was very important to us. Other supplies had flat out rejected it was possible to provide symmetry and had them up there in all shapes and angles which detracted from the aesthetics of the house.

Two (possibly three - yet to be confirmed) out of twenty five panels installed were faulty. One of these was possibly due to a manual handling issue by the installer, but even assuming just two faulty panels that's an 8% fault rate which is not particularly good. Have panel level monitoring (Enphase) therefore could ID the faulty panels easily, but had we gone for a string inverter, would probably have been stuck with an underperforming system for the long term.

Seem to be doing the job. We seem to be getting 8 kilowatts fairly comfortably out of a 10.2 kw array. We did punch a little over 10 kw just after 8 am one morning. Our roof is North East facing which means we get good solar gain from about 8 am, but it drops off around 4 pm, because the sun is over in the West by that stage. Given we have only had it running for about a week, I don’t know how the system will perform during the rest of the year

Rely Solar offered me 20 panels of the older cheetah 330w panels. This is possibly due to a supply glut in the market with cheaper sourcing for the retailer.


No issues with panels so far, and they are generating marginally higher output compared to similar installs in my postcode from qcell, Trina, sumac and risen panels. Having a higher number of panels probably delivers redundancy and wider solar exposure than with a newer 18 panel setup.

The panels are okay and are performing decently well. At the same time, don't expect any ground breaking performance from these, as such, my take at this point is that other Chinese panels in the same category would perform similarly well. Watch out for the total cost of installation and the best approach is to see to that that you don't spend any money out of pocket after rebates and taking the $2K interest free loan (in Vic i.e.).

I have 2 strings of 9 x JKM250P-60-A panels totalling 4.5KW input capacity. The inverter is only 4KW, but only rarely does it max-out. On occasion in the morning one string is a bit "lazy" - higher voltage but lower current say 300V/0.5A, while the other string is on 245V/4.0A, then it clicks in and matches with the other string. This usually only occurs in the early part of the day and does not recurr.

Can't remember the brand but they are Chinese made and so far working well. Island energy said that the inverter being of high quality is much more important than the panels. There is no shading on our roof and the house faces north west. Some panels were put on either side of the roof so we're making electricity from sun up to sun down. It's fantastic and should pay for itself in about 4 years.

Vernon really pushed the newer Jinko type-N panels on me due to their superior durability, reduced annual degradation in output and the better warranty relative to alternatives.

No issues from the panels, although because of our roof pitch and the east/west facing panels, we are only getting a max of about 8kWh out of our 9.9kW system on the very best of summer days - although this is what Solargain said we'd get, so it's good they were honest with their initial assessment in their initial quote.

Panels are great so far. Hard to tell how reliable the performance is as generating circa 4.4-4.6kw most days, but it is late april to may these are being monitored. Best to revisit come summer months if it constantly hits the 5kw maximum i would be comfortable the system is working and performing to specification.

Today is raining and cloudy but the panels have still managed to produce over 13kWh of power, well in excess of what we have used.

Again, as per my comments on the inverter how would a common domestic user know? I am getting a bit over 2Kw generated at the peak of sun over my house from a 3Kw system. Is this good? Is it much less than expected? It is certainly less than I expected based on how the system was sold to me.

Same as for the inverter. I guess they're well matched. Plus the installer, Solar Eze, set the system up so it is battery ready (just waiting for you to give us the word!). Note we did have a 3kW system and were upgraded to 6+kW, with a new battery ready inverter.

It took about four months between the time the installers had installed the panels until Origin Energy installed the smart meter. This was a little disappointing but was not the fault of the solar panel suppliers or installers, but rather the energy retailer.

I originally considered another brand of panel but after lengthy discussions with the two companies I received quotes from I decided to go with their recommendations to use the Jinko. The system is already generating peak power so they obviously work well.

No issues to date, in winter bills are higher due to use of power at night, will be looking into battery storage as summer bills are very low or zero, hopefully pricing comes down as would like to be free of the grid and have no power bill for winter also.

We are located in a forest area with shade issues. The new Jinko panel design allows productivity of power if a panel is partially shaded.
A study period of 180 days has passed to pre solar kwh's showing a reduction of around 30%.

Chose these as they were fairly new, had a good reputation and offered black framing.
There are 17 panels with 6 facing east and 11 facing west. As the panels are black, they are scarcely visible on the roof and are totally invisible from the street.

Although out installation is quite recent I can comment on some criteria. Although the Month of May is one of the lowest sunlight Months, it is surprising to see how efficient the panels are in capturing the solar energy even on rainy days.

The panels are fine and so far work well.
Unfortunately the panels were installed too flat (<10°), they do not self clean, and allow pooling along the bottom, which will most likely lead to premature panel failure.
Only time will tell.

Just like the inverters, the panels have given no problems and production has exceeded original estimates ( although I realise this is due to a number of factors besides just the panels themselves!). Very happy with the whole system.

Still working excellent and as expected, no issues so far!!

Loving my Jinko Panels + Fronius Gen24 + connected to my critical loads for backup power setup of 3KW in an event of grid-down scenario provided you have full sunshine.

I am not sure how they are performing there dosent seem to be much going back into the grid. My power bill seems to have increased since the system has been fitted.

They definately reduced my discount when the solar was fitted.

The Jinko Solar Panels have been performing as expected, no problems that I can detect so far. It has only been almost 9 months since my installation so I can not yet compare the full 12 months of seasons to measure degradation.

After about six months, Greenbuild contacted us and suggested that the panels be cleaned, giving us a contact to carry out this work. We had them cleaned and noticed a lift in the amount of energy being generated, immediately.
