About Jinko solar panels

Huge Chinese manufacturer ($3 billion sales a year) and growing year on year mostly on the back of massive demand from within China itself. Panels are like every other mainstream Tier 1 brand. A regular 60 cell poly, a 72 poly and a 300W mono. All very nice, nothing out of the ordinary. Price per panel is a bit high for what they are. Longi 300W black mono panels are a bit better, Canadian 330W 72 cell poly are $11 a panel cheaper and have better structural support (needed for these 2m long panels) and the 270W 60 cell panel is topped by pretty much everyone with 275/285W panels including Talesun who are $21 a panel less.

Jinko do well in Australia because they are, usually, right on the top of the Tier 1 list. This doesn't make any panel any better, it just means they make more of them than anyone else.
