JA Solar unveils new high-efficiency PV products at Intersolar Europe

JA Solar Holdings Company Ltd. (Shanghai, China) has announced that it will showcase a new series of high-efficiency solar photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules using its SECIUM and Maple technologies at the Intersolar Europe trade show in Munich, June 8th to 10th, 2011.

JA Solar Holdings Company Ltd. (Shanghai, China) has announced that it will showcase a new series of high-efficiency solar photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules using its SECIUM and Maple technologies at the Intersolar Europe trade show in Munich, June 8th to 10th, 2011.


The company states that its monocrystalline silicon SECIUM cells can achieve conversion efficiencies up to 19.2%, and that its polycrystalline silicon Maple cells can reach 18.2% efficiency.

"The advanced technologies powering our new generation of products take the cost/performance ratio of solar products to the next level, and offer compelling value to end customers looking for cost-effective solutions that maximize power output over a limited area," states JA Solar CEO Dr. Peng Fang.

"These products are ideal for application in rooftop and area-constrained installations, a market where we see significant opportunities for growth over the next year."



Modules available for immediate shipment

JA Solar states that its SECIUM and Maple solar cells generate approximately 10% more power than conventional polycrystalline PV modules, which it says enables a lower weight-per-area ratio as well as reducing system installation costs per watt.

The company states that both products are already available in volume production and are available for immediate shipment, with SECIUM modules available in 260 watt and 300 watt versions, and Maple modules in a 250 watt version.
