JA Solar Holdings is the world's largest solar cell producer. They design, manufacture, and sell monocrystalline solar cells primarily in the People’s Republic of China. It sells its products primarily through a team of sales and marketing personnel to solar module manufacturers, who assemble and integrate its solar cells into modules and systems that convert sunlight into electricity. JA Solar Holdings also sells its products to customers in Germany, Sweden, Spain, South Korea, and the United States. The company was founded in 2005 and is based in Ningjin[disambiguation needed], in the People’s Republic of China.[3] In December 2009 investors began to notice the growing market share of JA Solar which was fueled by a large subsidy from the Chinese Government.[4]
