The Knesset (Israeli Parliament) has utilized the use of JA Solar’s PV modules for its rooftop solar project. 450kW of PV modules were completely installed on Knesset’s rooftop, and the array started operation after the inauguration on March 29th.

Occupying 4,650 square meters of roof space, the rooftop solar project is by far the largest solar project completed by any national assembly in the world. 1,500 PV panels will yield about 10% of the building's electricity needs. This solar project, along with other energy saving measures, is expected to cut down a third of the energy consumption at the Knesset by the end of 2015.

Mr. Yuli Edelstein, Knesset Speaker, said, "What is happening before our eyes is a true revolution in energy conservation. It is not just the solar panels; it is a turning point with regards to the environmental awareness revolution that we have been promoting for the past two years."

Mr. Jian Xie, President of JA Solar, added, "We are proud to collaborate with local distributor Ralco and EPC company Solargreen as the module supplier for the Knesset rooftop project. This iconic solar project is of great significance in terms of developing clean and renewable energy in the country. Successfully shipping 450KW of JA modules to the Knesset is a testament to the high quality and reliability of our PV products and reflects our ever-growing global influence."
