Premier Energies has launched India’s first bifacial mono PERC solar cell based on an M10 wafer (182 mm). The cell boasts a conversion efficiency of up to 23.2%. The cell has an open-circuit voltage of 0.68 V, a short-circuit current of 13 A, and a fill factor of 82%.
“The 182mm wafer size is the most economically viable option, based on an in-depth analysis of various geographical conditions along the industrial value chain,” stated Premier Energies, which has an integrated solar manufacturing facility in Hyderabad.
Currently, Premier Energies has a 2 GW module and 750 MW cell (182mm mono PERC) capacity. It plans to grow to 8 GW module, 4 GW cell, and 2 GW ingot/wafer by 2025, with 2 GW module and 1.25 GW cell of this new capacity added within six months.
