published: 2014-11-21 15:02 | editor: | category: News

JinkoSolar announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014. In the quarter, the company shipped 708.2MW of solar produces and reached a RMB2.6 billion (approx. US$417.3 million) revenues. Although the shipment and revenues were both increased, the gross margin slightly decreased. This was mainly explained through lower module ASPs and improvements in operating efficiency.
