SPI 15 - Suntech Introduces New Generation 1,500V Module at Solar Power International 2015

Will showcase alongside SuperPoly and HyPro modules.

WUXI, China, Sept. 11, 2015 -- Wuxi Suntech announced today that the company will showcase two recent, and one upcoming, product lines in California next week at Solar Power International (SPI) 2015. The conference, recognized as one of the leading North American solar events, affords Suntech the opportunity to introduce its upgraded SuperPoly modules, boasting a 100 MW manufacturing capacity, and the high efficiency HyPro line featuring PERC technology, to the burgeoning US solar market. In addition, Suntech's 1,500V high system voltage module, to be launched in October, will be on display at SPI.


"We're very excited to unveil our newest product line, the 1,500V module, as well as showcase our high-efficiency SuperPoly and the HyPro modules, at Solar Power International 2015 next week," said Victor Xiong president of Suntech. "As the demand and support for solar grow in North America, we see tremendous opportunity for Suntech and are honored to share our range of VDE certified products to support the shift towards an energy efficient and low-carbon future."

The new 1,500V high system voltage module, engineered for both utility-scale and commercial applications, achieves 3-4% reduction in balance of system costs compared to 1,000V modules. The new modules reduce the amount of required components and are lighter weight than traditional double glass modules. The SuperPoly, a polycrystalline module that integrates an in-depth reflection technology and passivation process, enables the module to generate at least 2 power classes (approximately 10W) higher than the average industry-level module, reaching efficiency levels up to 16.6%. The SuperPoly 72 cell module is ideal for utility scale projects, producing 325W at peak performance.

Following the upgrade of Suntech's entire solar panel production line, all the modules to be showcased at SPI are four-busbar modules. Each one is PID (potential induced degradation) free with strong performance in low light conditions, and Suntech's IP68-rated junction box reduces the possibility of water or dirt ingress. Additionally the modules are backed by Suntech's 25-year linear power warranty and 10 year product-warranty, and excellent customer service. Suntech's product lines will be on display at Solar Power International in Anaheim, California from September 14-17, 2015 at booth number 4736.
