JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar"), a global leader in the photovoltaic (PV) industry, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc., in partnership with Green Builder® Media, will showcase the Arc House, a small, smart, net-zero carbon footprint home at Solar Power International (SPI).
JinkoSolar's all black, high efficiency modules will power the Arc House, allowing the smart home to function completely off the grid. This net-zero carbon footprint home will automatically adjust and optimize energy use with an integrated smart home technology and solar system which will also manage the production, storage, and monitoring of energy use. SPI attendees will be able to tour the Arc House's 432 square foot highly efficient living space.
"Solar has become a mature, competitive energy source, and we are excited to show what JinkoSolar modules can do for homes of all sizes and shapes," said Nigel Cockroft, General Manager of JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc. "The Arc House in particular is a glimpse into the potential of smart, tiny homes. We are grateful to be partnered with Green Builder® Media, a company consistently on the forefront of the most pressing environmental issues of our time, to bring forth a vision of the future of sustainable living."
"JinkoSolar is a natural fit for this project. Aside from producing aesthetically pleasing all black, high powered panels, JinkoSolar is also a financially stable global solar leader, with strong vision in the future of energy efficient, residential living," said Sara Gutterman, CEO of Green Builder Media. "While the Arc House is a demonstration house, we ultimately intend for visitors to be inspired to use the same components and ideas for their own homes."
