California-based SunEdison has introduced the Silvantis R-series passivated emitter and rear cell (PERC) technology solar module.
SunEdison says the PERC technology enables Silvantis R-series modules to achieve up to 17.4% efficiency. The modules, available in 60-cell and 72-cell formats, have warranties for operation with high-efficiency transformerless inverters. The company says the modules have been tested beyond standard potential induced degradation certification conditions.
‘The majority of the solar modules we manufacture are used in SunEdison-owned systems; the success of these projects depends upon the performance of the solar module,’ says Dave Ranhoff, president of solar materials at SunEdison. ‘PERC technology delivers more than 10 extra watts of power per module.’
