Mitsubishi Electric Corp. has introduced new models of photovoltaic modules – five for the European market and five for North America and Asia. The new lineup comprises modules with outputs of 210, 220, 225, 230 and 235 W. Shipments will begin on Jan. 15, 2010.
The new high-output modules use lead-free solder and incorporate PV cells with four bus bars. Using the new cells in combination with an increased module size achieves a power output of up to 235 W per module. Larger output means that fewer modules are needed to build a system, helping to reduce total system cost, according to the company.
The new models will be on display at the 24th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition starting Sept. 21 in Hamburg, Germany, and at Solar Power International 2009 on Oct. 27 in Anaheim, Calif.
