Chinese module manufacturer, ET Solar, has unveiled a new quasi-mono solar module at the Ecobuild exhibition in London. The new high-efficiency module series will be called Moly PV.
The Moly module series utilises high-grade polysilicon materials to achieve conversion efficiencies of up to 18.2 percent in the solar cells, whilst the module itself is capable of up to 15.72 percent. The level of efficiency puts the modules almost on par with that of mono-crystalline modules but a lower unit cost. Furthermore, the solar cells used in the Moly range contain a much smaller amount of oxygen than mono-crystalline cells, this means that the Moly module will have less power degradation.
ET Solar is offering two categories of Moly module, one with a power output of 255W consisting of 60 solar cells, the other, a 305W module made up of 72 solar cells. All new Moly modules will be offered under ET Solar’s 25-year linear power performance warranty, along with a 10-year workmanship warranty.
Dennis She, President and Chief Executive Officer at ET Solar, commented: “We are very pleased to introduce the Moly module series on a global basis. With this new product, we clearly broaden our module range to meet our customers’ needs. The Moly module is a great outcome from our R&D activities. This technical achievement demonstrates our commitment to total customer satisfaction.”
The Moly range of modules will be available soon from the company’s UK-based distribution centre in Felixstowe. Since the launch of the company’s distribution centre the UK has become an increasingly important market for the Chinese company, with ET Solar already distributing 5MW during 2012.
