SolarWorld AG is presenting its new generation of solar power modules at the Ecobuild trade fair in London.
Salisbury/Bonn, 17. February 2015. SolarWorld AG is presenting its new generation of solar power modules at the Ecobuild trade fair in London. The company has improved both the design and essential features of the "Sunmodule Plus" and "Sunmodule Protect" module series. This has resulted in a new module range that provides higher yields, advanced installation options and an improved look.
The use of highly efficient cells from SolarWorld's German production enables the modules to achieve outputs of up to 290 watts peak. Higher yields are also attained as a result of the new module design, since greater spacing between the cells enables a higher light yield. In addition, SolarWorld is deploying a new drainage corner that increases the self-cleaning effect of the modules. The new generation of modules also simplifies the assembly: with its increased profile, the 33 mm-high module frame improves the stability, while a new flange enables rear mounting. Weighing just 18 kg, the new modules are also considerably lighter than the previous generation. In addition to the technical features there are also improvements to the visual appearance. For the first time SolarWorld is offering a completely black solar module in which all the components are coloured black – right through from the cells and the frame to the module corners. The Sunmodule Plus panels are available in power classes ranging from 250 to 290 watts peak. SolarWorld produces all its modules in Germany and the USA in accordance with the highest social, quality and environmental standards. The modules have a performance guarantee of 25 years (Sunmodule Plus glass-film modules) or 30 years (Sunmodule Protect glass-glass modules).
Ecobuild is one of the world's largest events for sustainable construction, ecological design and energy. The trade fair is taking place from 3-5 March at the ExCeL exhibition centre in London. SolarWorld UK's stand will be situated in Hall 5, No. S2160.
