ZNShine Solar was founded in 1988 and entered the PV industry in 2006. The company is based in Jintan, Jiangsu. Bloomberg experts rated it as a Tier 1 manufacturer which means that the company is deemed financially stable.
The manufacturer has a strong R&D team, which recently developed graphene coating for their panels
in cooperation with the China University of Science and Technology. Turns out, this coating can increase power generation but more importantly reduce maintenance costs. Graphene-coating glass has a hydrophilic effect: it repels dust which essentially makes it self-cleaning.
If graphene coating is as good as Chinese engineers present it, it can significantly lower the maintenance costs for large solar installations. People use over 10 billion gallons of filtered water per year
for cleaning PV modules around the world, according to MIT experts. That’s enough water for the yearly needs of 2 million people. Filtering the water makes up 10% of the operating costs of solar installations.
