Global cleantech company Trina Solar has launched its new distributed solar module ‘NEG18R.28 Vertex S+ 505W.’ It is designed for commercial and industrial rooftop solar projects. The solar company launched the new model at Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
“To help meet this energy efficiency requirement and add greater value to the customer, the Trina Solar NEG18R.28 module is a lightweight dual-glass product measuring 1961mm x 1134mm and weighing just 23.5kg. It adopts advanced n-type i-TOPCon technology, with module output reaching 505W+ and efficiency 22.7%, and it comes with a 30-year performance warranty,” the firm said in a media statement.
According to the company, these panels have passed 35mm hail tests and met IEC fire ratings (Class A+C). In addition to that, ultra-high reliability of these panels has led to the product warranty of upto 25 years and a power warranty of 30 years. The NEG18R.28, measuring 1961mm x 1134mm and with a frame height of 30mm seems to be optimal for commercial and industrial rooftops. It also seems to be offering a variety of flexible installation solutions for system deployment, including short side and long side clamping, crossed beam, shared rail and slide-in mounting.
It further mentioned about the NEG18R.28 dual-glass module combining n-type technology with 210mm rectangular silicon wafer (210R) cell technology, will generate up to 505W power and deliver high efficiency of 22.7%.
With that, the mono-facial dual-glass panel has mechanical loading of up to 5,400 Pa snow load and 2,400 Pa wind load. In addition, without a backsheet the use of plastics is reduced, improving the module’s environmental credentials and recyclability.
“This module can achieve up to 8.6% more in energy yields over 25 years (compared with p-type panels), contributing to lower total system cost with shorter payback time,” claims the solar firm.
Nowadays, solar panels are increasingly being included by developers in new commercial and industrial buildings to reduce energy consumption and energy costs seeking to reduce the carbon emissions of existing buildings.
