LONGi boosting M6 solar-grade mono-Si wafers
The largest China-based solar-grade mono-Si wafer maker LONGi Green Energy Technology has been pushing for usage of M6 solar-grade mono-Si wafers (in a square shape eith side width of 166mm) through adopting such wafers for its in-house production of PERC (passivated emitter and rear cell) mono-Si solar cells, according to industry sources.

Longi unveils results of bifacial module test
The exercise, conducted on Longi PERC bifacial modules by Germany’s TÜV SÜD at a test field in China, showed surprisingly higher gains in panels getting light reflection from painted-surface and grassland albedo. It also showed, Longi claimed, bifacial panels operate at lower temperatures than single-sided alternatives.
