At 370 W, the company’s NU-AH370 monocrystalline silicon solar modules offer the highest output of its three new product offerings, with a conversion efficiency of 19.1%. Sharp recommends the 72-cell passivated emitter rear cell (PERC) panels for use in large-scale rooftop and ground-mounted applications.
“Sharp’s unique power tolerance of up to 5% makes this the module of choice by project developers,” the company said in an online statement. “With the addition of 1200mm cables that enable leapfrog wiring and reduce balance of system (BOS) costs, this module is the ideal choice for major industrial projects and power plants.”
The 60-cell NU-AK310 and NU-AK300B lines are ideal for industrial and residential rooftop PV arrays, Sharp said, noting that they are available in a number of design choices. Like the NU-AH370 and NU-AK300B modules, the 310 W NU-AK310 panels also boast a conversion efficiency rate of 19.1%. In addition, the NU-AK300B modules feature black frames and backsheets, for applications in which aesthetics matter.
“We have made improvements to our supply chain, enabling us to provide our customers with cost-savings, while still ensuring that the modules incorporate the best of Sharp’s technology,” said Andrew Lee, Sharp sales director for EMEA.
Sharp claims to have shipped more than 50 million PV modules throughout the world to date. Last year, the Japanese group achieved a 25.09% conversion efficiency from a cell using both heterojunction (HJT) and back contact technology, as certified by the Japan Electrical Safety and Environment Technology Laboratories.
