Trina Solar With Global PV Launches 445W PV Modules for Rooftops
- Global PV and smart energy provider Trina Solar has launched a new generation of rooftop modules: the Vertex S+ n type dual-glass product line, with output power reaching 445W, the highest in an area of less than 2 square meters.
Global PV and smart energy provider Trina Solar has launched a new generation of rooftop modules at the Genera trade fair in Madrid, Spain. The new Vertex S+ n type dual-glass product line was unveiled with output power reaching 445W, the highest in an area of less than 2 square meters. The modules come in two specifications: the monofacial NEG9R.28 with maximum output power up to 445Wp and efficiency reaching 22.3%, and the transparent NEG9RC.27 meant for high-end aesthetic applications featuring a front side power of 435Wp, at 21.8% efficiency. According to Trina Solar, the modules also come with a power warranty up to 30 years and have already entered mass production. (Source: PV Magazine)
Why does it matter?
The Vertex S+ modules offer maximum power output from limited space, trouble-free installation and operations over decades, and good looks on the roof. The modules are based on the 210mm Vertex technology platform, and due to n type i-TOPCon cells, generate approximately 10% extra energy over 30 years compared to p type peers. Moreover, n type cells have a 50% lower initial degradation and an 11% lower annual power attenuation. This results in a substantially boosted energy yield over the module’s lifetime, and improved reliability. Additionally, the modules feature a dual-glass structure, which makes them resistant to salt spray, acids, and alkalis, as well as boasting the highest possible fire safety. (Source: Trina Solar)
Trina Solar has ramped up its n type factory securing supply of n-type i-TOPCon cells for modules of all sizes. The Vertex S+ modules are compatible with other BOS components, offering a variety of mounting methods including short side and long side clamping, crossed beam, shared rail and slide-in mounting. Additionally, they are compatible with more than 99% of mainstream inverters in the market, as verified by a comprehensive compatibility analysis. With the new Vertex S+ modules, Trina Solar is looking to make rooftop solar more accessible and efficient, while increasing the energy yield and reliability of PV systems. (Source: Trina Solar)
