JinkoSolar Completes the First Athletic Arena PV Installation in Israel
SHANGHAI, 17 May, 2017 -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company"), a global leader in the photovoltaic industry (PV), today announced that it has provided 686KW high efficiency solar panels to power the first athletic arena PV installation in Israel.
JinkoSolar has provided 686KW high-efficiency modules to Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem, Israel.

We trust JinkoSolar as they ensure that clients are provided with high quality, low maintenance clean energy solutions for their power needs and we look forward to working with JinkoSolar on future solar projects".
