Suniva Delivering 265W and 310W Modules in Q4 2012

High-powered Modules Debuted at Solar Power International Are Available

NORCROSS, Ga.--Suniva, Inc., a U.S.-based manufacturer of high-quality, high-efficiency silicon solar cells and modules, today announced the general availability of its 265W (60-cell) and 310W (72-cell) OPTimus® Series monocrystalline modules. A limited number of 270W and 315W modules are also available in Q4. Shipments of the high-powered modules will begin this month.


Suniva's R&D and Manufacturing teams continue to deliver higher power at large scale to meet the needs of our diverse customer base. "Product availability is equally important as innovation. In an industry which suffers from far too many wild promises and rarely delivering what is promised, we are proud to deliver the high power products that we market. There's a vast difference between showcasing a "champion" product with very limited availability and actually shipping that product in volume to customers," said Bryan Ashley, chief marketing officer, Suniva. "We consider our execution a testimony to our ability to deliver what we promise and maintain our high-quality standards."

"We are very excited to be among the first to offer these industry leading high-powered products to our many dealers," said Corey Geiger, Vice President of Marketing at Soligent, the largest full-service distributor of renewable energy products in the Americas. "Suniva is living up to its promise of ever higher power and delivering the highest quality modules at a competitive price."

Suniva's OPTimus® series monocrystalline modules are certified PID-free by PV Evolution labs, have passed enhanced reliability/stress tests performed by Fraunhofer ISE and passed IEC salt spray extended severity level 6. Suniva tests the safety and reliability of our modules far beyond standard UL and IEC certification requirements. (The power performance of Suniva's modules must not degrade by more than 5% while exposed to double the IEC 61215 test protocols.) All modules in the OPTimus® series are made with American technology and the highest quality standards. Third party verified PAN files are available.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
