SPI 2016 - Yingli to Launch New UL-Certified PV Module Series in the U.S.

The Series Feature Integrated SolarEdge Power Electronics, Double Glass and Monocrystalline Modules in both 60 and 72 Cell versions.

BAODING, China, Aug. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Ltd. ("Yingli" or "Yingli Solar") (NYSE: YGE), one of the world's leading solar PV module manufacturers, today announced the launch of three new module series in the United States.


Yingli Smart Module Series, certified by Underwriters Laboratory (UL), features integrated module-level power optimizers produced by SolarEdge (NASDAQ: SEDG), a global leader in PV inverters, power optimizers, and module-level monitoring services. Ideal for the residential and commercial market segments, Yingli Smart Modules increase energy harvest at the module level and enable more flexible system design thanks to embedded SolarEdge power optimizers.

Besides, Yingli's TwinMAX 60 Cell is a frameless module comprised of two layers of 2.5 mm thick semi-tempered glass, which replaced the conventional back sheet and glass structure. As the backside makes use of the reflected light from the surroundings, the modules can yield up to 30% more power, depending on the albedo. Ideal for harsh environment conditions, TwinMAX modules carry a 30-year linear warranty, which could provide more than 20% power gain for customers compared to industry standard 25-year linear warranty.

Furthermore, built with the best P-type monocrystalline cells, UL-Certified YLM Series offer high conversion efficiency and high-transmission glass with a unique anti-reflective coating that directs more light on the solar cells, resulting in a higher energy yield. YLM Series are available in both 60-cell and 72-cell series which enhances its versatility for a wide range of applications going from residential and commercial projects to large-scale power plants.

The three new module series will be introduced to the U.S. market at Solar Power International on September 12-15. This year, Yingli's SPI booth will showcase innovation and solutions that maximize performance and ROI. Join us at Booth #1815 in Las Vegas Convention Center to learn more about our latest products.
