China, April 07, 2015 -
JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq:JASO) (''JA Solar''
or 'A'), one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance solar
power products, today announced that the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) has
utilized the use of JA PV modules for its rooftop solar project.
Knesset unveiled the 450KW solar modules installed on its roof at the
inauguration of the solar project's operation on March 29th. Occupying 4,650 square meters
of roof space, it is by far the largest solar project completed by any national
assembly in the world. 1,500 photovoltaic panels will yield about 10 percent 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
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. ''
