Boviet Solar Technology unveiled three new PERC solar modules at the Intersolar North America show this week in San Francisco. The new lineup includes a 355W 72-cell module, a 290W 60-cell module, and a 300W 60-cell smart module. These new modules are among the first products to come from Boviet following its PERC upgrades at its facility in Vietnam.
The 290W 60-cell Polycrystalline diamond-cut PERC module was designed for the residential solar market, said Logan Fang, a senior market strategist for the company. Similarly, the new 300W Monocrystalline PERC Smart Module debuts with 24-hour monitoring for each module, which is designed to harvest 25 percent more energy, the company spec sheet said.
For the commercial solar market, Boviet is introducing its new 355W 72-cell Monocrystalline PERC module, that is designed to operate at up to 18.3 percent efficiency.
All of the new modules come with a 12-year product warranty and a 25-year linear output warranty. The salt and ammonia resistance of the modules has been tested by TUV Rheinland.
“PERC is clearly the future of solar modules and Boviet plans to have its factory converted to 100 percent PERC panel manufacturing,” said John Bereckis, President of Boviet Solar USA’s Module Division. “With (six) distribution points strategically located across the United States, we are better able to meet the needs of solar installers, commercial developers, and strategic partners.”
Headquartered in Silicon Valley, Boviet Solar USA is the North American arm of Boviet Solar Technology, the largest manufacturer of solar cells and panels in Vietnam. Boviet Solar is a subsidiary of China’s Powerway Group.
