SuperPoly processing technology is a silicon casting and wafering process that produces quality multicrystalline wafers, the module achieves up to 15.5 percent conversion efficiency.
The new module also features an anti-reflective surface trapping the sunlight into the cells combined with a hydrophobic self-cleaning surface structure. The modules are ideally suited to rooftop installations where weight, power, and aesthetics are key customer considerations.
James Hu, president for Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa at Suntech, said: â€œThe new module delivers 10% more power than conventional polycrystalline products leading to lower balance-of-system and installation costs per watt. Israel's excellent solar resources make solar power a viable and highly cost competitive energy solution that can help the country move towards energy independence.â€
According to Suntech, the new 300W Vd is a 72-cell module comprised of 6-inch black square cells. It features a +/- 5 percent power tolerance and exceptionally low oxygen content leading to strong resistance to light-induced degradation.
In addition, the modules are built to withstand all weather conditions including 3.800 N/m2 (~270 km/h) wind load and 5.400 N/m2 (~55 kg/m2) snow loads, well above IEC standard requirements.
Earlier this month, the company has launched two new high-performance solar panels in the US, Canada and Latin America. Both products deliver higher power outputs and provide a superior levelized cost of solar electricity for Suntech customers.
Will the move benefit Israeli customers?
