(Yicai Global) June 6 -- JinkoSolar Holding has signed a three-year deal to provide 1.43 GW of high efficiency modules to sPower, an independent renewable energy producer in the US, via its wholly-owned US subsidiary. the WeChat official account reported on June 6.
The agreement includes significant down payments, which will help Shangrao-based JinkoSolar expand its production capacity in the US and Asia, the Chinese firm said in a statement yesterday. It gave no further details about the transaction amount and other terms of the deal.

"JinkoSolar's technology roadmap and cost leadership are also strong enablers for our future projects, and we look forward to maintaining our strong partnership."
"We are very pleased to work with sPower," said Gener Miao, JinkoSolar vice president of sales and marketing. "We value the opportunity to grow our business with a visionary like sPower. JinkoSolar has been investing heavily in advanced solar technologies, and these efforts have yielded major benefits."
