China-based module manufacturer JA Solar Holdings Co. Ltd. has announced the output power of its 60-cell PV modules assembled by mono-Si PERC cells has exceeded 325 W. According to the company, the actual output power of 326.67 W, as measured and certified by TUV SUD, sets a new world record for 60-cell mono-Si PV modules.
Currently, the average power output of the 60-cell PV modules assembled with mono-Si PERC cells JA Solar offers is 300 W. The company says this newly set world record is a result of JA Solar’s commitment to continuous performance improvement, as well as its strong R&D effort. It is also a result in preparation to meet the technological challenge of the “Front Runner” initiative as a showcase for the PV industry set forth by the Chinese government.
“Setting a new world record of over 325 W output power from a 60-cell mono-Si PV module is a remarkable achievement enabled by PERC technology,” says Dr. Wei Shan, chief technology officer of JA Solar. “It is also a testament of the unrivaled efforts at JA Solar that focus on developing high-efficiency, cost-effective PV products meet the ever-increased demand for clean energy through technological innovation and continuous performance improvement, as well as the commitment and the tradition of JA Solar to provide our customers high-performance PV products with high quality and reliability.”
