Chinese module manufacturer JinkoSolar launched a new transparent solar module for applications in building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) and agrivoltaics at the recent Smarter E event held in Munich, Germany.
“The Jinko Transparent Curtain Wall Series is based on our n-type TOPCon HOT2 cell technology,” a company spokesperson told pv magazine. “It can be purchased with different levels of transparency, depending on the project. Light transmittance ranges between 30% and 40%.”
The panel has a power output ranging from 245 W to 300 W with the power conversion efficiency spanning from 12.09% to 13.08%. The open-circuit voltage is between 25.6 V and 28.5 V and the short-circuit current is of 12.09 A to 12.93 A.
It measures 1,759 mm × 1,158 mm × 11.5 mm, has a weight of 54 kg and its temperature coefficient is -0.30% per C.
The operating ambient temperature ranges from -40 C to 85 C, said the manufacturer, and the maximum system voltage is 1,500 V. The panel has 6 mm of toughened glass on both sides and its junction box has an IP 67 rating.
Jinko offers a five-year product warranty and a 25-year power output guarantee. The panels are said to be able to operate at 90% of their original performance after 10 years and at 80% in the remaining 15 years.
“The product is also available in different colors and can be adapted to modern architectural concepts,” the spokesperson said. “The dual glass configuration ensures lower crack diffusivity and corrosion resistance.”

1,1759 mm is nonsensical in this context. It’s not over 11 metres judging from the power output, so it’s probably 1.17something metres. However that makes the weight suspicious. 54 kg for a panel that’s something like 1.3 square metres and a centimetre thick? That’s heavier than a solid block of aluminium that size would be!
Hey Samira, thanks for your message. That was a slip, the length is 1,759 mm. The article was amended.
