Chinese firm Trina Solar has announced four new series of modules–high-efficiency, dual-glass, double-side and aesthetics–to meet the diversified needs of PV applications in multiple scenarios. By using innovative integrated technologies, the maximal output of the new series of modules is said to be 415W in mass production.
The high efficiency series can be used in multiple application scenarios like utility-scale ground-mount and distributed PV projects. An increase in the output of modules from 370W to 415W will help reduce the balance of system cost by 4.5% to 8.5%, and reduce levelized cost of electricity (LCoE) by 2.5% to 4.6%, according to the company.
The dual-glass series features high reliability in extreme conditions, 5-year extended warranty for linear power, and more power generation with lower power degradation.
The double-side series is said to provide extra 5% to 30% power generation by its back side, features high power generation in snowfields and locations where sand is plentiful, among other high-reflection environments.
The aesthetics series, with its aesthetically-designed black-out look, is designed specially for the high-end residential market.
The new modules integrate multi-busbar, double-glass, dual-side and half-cut technologies.
