JinkoSolar Closes 50MWh ESS Distribution Agreement with Palette in Nigeria, Africa
08 Jun 2022

JinkoSolar, one of the largest and most innovative PV module manufacturers in the world, today announced that it has forged a 50MWh distribution strategic agreement of energy storage system with Palette Business Solutions Limited, a renewable energy firm committed to the distribution of high-quality cutting edge solar energy products and solutions in the world. The agreement states that Palette will distribute JinkoSolar’s battery system units and LFP container storage system.

“Palette always partners with top tier world acclaimed manufacturers like JinkoSolar in delivering sustainable solutions at good price points. Our distribution network in Nigeria consists of committed resellers, professional installers, and a competent support team. Palette commenced business in 2010 to fight the devastating effects of climate change and strive to create the awareness and use of solar energy through its distribution in delivering clean uninterrupted electricity to serve the rural and urban communities,” said Charles, Head of Palette.

“We’ve seen a surge in electricity demand in Africa, which has outstripped electricity produced by suppliers. Together with Palette, we firmly believe our ESS solutions will bring new development opportunities to Nigeria and make renewable electricity accessible and affordable to every households and factories in Nigeria,” said Jaffer Wang, GM of SSA, JinkoSolar.

Why Choose JinkoSolar’s ESS

Strong Safety & High Energy Density

JinkoSolar’s energy storage system uses a lithium iron phosphate (LFP) as its anode materials with the additional advantage of no memory effect so the battery can be charged and discharged shallowly and frequently, which can effectively improve the efficiency of the system. Besides that, it possesses protection functions like over-charge, over-discharge, over-current and abnormal temperature, which guarantees reliability & safety over the lifespan.

Flexible Design Configuration

Flexible design configuration is another key feature of JInkoSolar’s ESS to meet the requirements in different application scenarios in Africa. In areas with high operating temperatures and limited installation space, users can connect the battery units parallel to form a larger capacity battery pack to meet their requirements of long power backup time and long service life.

On- and Off-Grid Switching Function

In relatively developed areas of Africa, the system supports on- and off-grid switching function, which allows it to be integrated into the grid to maximize IRR and lower LCOE.
