Is solar all set for the high-power age?
There can be no doubt the pace of technological development in solar PV, but current innovations have actually caught even the most optimistic of industry stakeholders by surprise. Recently, solar modules with outputs of up to 450W hit the racks and left project designers drooling at the possibility of pressing more power right into each hectare of a prospective utility-scale project. As well as yet, the industry has actually barely had time to blink and modules with peak outcomes over of 550W are right here, with outcomes climbing greater also still.
