Jinko started N-type solar panels layout as early as 2019. Jinko has also been No.1 shipment for 4 consecutive years. When it comes to innovation technology, Jinko is always a global leader because they launched a variety of N-type PV modules. While awarded 19 world records, they also announced in April 2022 that they had achieved an N-type efficiency of 25.7%, a standard achieved after using TOPCon technology in N-type for the fifth time.
N-type is Jinko’s future
TOPCON and HIT/HJT both achieve power improvement through passivation. The former one uses tunneling oxide layer while HJT uses intrinsic amorphous silicon film. The differences in the methods lead to the differences in their respective processes, resulting in the difference in the commercial cost between the two.
TOPCon cells have higher efficiency limit (28.2%~28.7%), much better than PERC cells (24.5%).
