Most N-type mono high-efficiency module rivals such as LG Electronics (IBC) and Panasonic Corp (HJT) have already switched to the 156mm x 156mm large-area wafers in a 60-cell format with power ratings of 365Wp and 330Wp. But SunPower’s ‘A-Series’ module ranges from 400Wp to 415Wp for residential use.
According to PV-Tech news, US-headquartered high-efficiency solar panel manufacturer SunPower Corp has launched its first PV module using its NGT (Next Generation Technology) IBC (Interdigitated Back Contact) ‘Maxeon Gen 5’ cells, fabricated on a new production line at its manufacturing plant in Malaysia.
SunPower said that the new ‘large-area’ ‘A-Series’ module (1,833.88mm x 1,016mm) deployed 66 NGT cells, which use 156mm x 156mm N-type monocrystalline wafers, compared to its previously highest performing ‘X-Series’ cells and modules (125mm x 125mm) in a 96 cell configuration 1549.4mm x 1041.4mm, significantly larger than its previous high efficiency module and only targeted at the US residential market.
The A-Series module is expected to come in power ranges of 400Wp and 415Wp. ——————–***——————–
