In the previous entry in this series, we covered the basics of n-type TOPCon and what differentiates it from PERC cells. We also dove into details on how this advanced technology enables the Vertex N to maximize energy output with high efficiency and better performance to minimize operational costs and lower LCOE for utility-scale and C&I solar projects.
This entry explores Trina’s Vertex S+, a dedicated residential PV module with 210mm n-type TOPCon technology, and the advantages it offers to suppliers, distributors, installers, and homeowners.
Get your first look at the innovative Vertex N and Vertex S+ modules at RE+ 2023 in Las Vegas, NV, from Sept. 11-14, 2023. Stop by booth #2138 to explore the new industry standard in solar technology and ask the on-hand Trina team about the higher efficiency, higher power, and better performance of Vertex N and Vertex S+.
As the world becomes more energy-conscious, installers and homeowners are seeking more accessible and efficient ways to get the most bang for their buck with rooftop PV solar systems. With a maximum power output of 435W and an efficiency of up to 22%, Vertex S+ addresses these needs by offering an optimized solution tailored for residential solar applications.
High Energy Output in Limited Spaces
Residential rooftops often have limited space for solar installations. The Vertex S+ takes up less surface area while maximizing energy generation within the available space and maintaining high efficiency.
With a higher wattage and efficiency per panel, installers can design rooftop PV systems with customers’ desired energy needs using fewer panels. This space-saving design makes the installation process more efficient. It also allows for more flexibility in positioning the panels to take full advantage of the available rooftop and capitalize on the sun’s energy potential.
The reduced number of panels means less equipment to maintain and lower BOS costs, making it an attractive choice for installers. Residential solar installers can optimize roof space by harnessing more power in a smaller area, accommodating larger systems, or leaving room for future expansions.
Merging Elegance with Efficiency
The Vertex S+ embraces an aesthetically pleasing design, blending harmoniously with residential rooftops. The module’s sleek appearance and compact size make it an ideal choice for homeowners looking to enhance their property’s curb appeal without compromising energy production.
Reliable Long-Term Home Investment
Using n-type TopCon Advanced Technology ensures enhanced durability and lower degradation rates over time, ensuring they’ll perform optimally for decades and providing homeowner customers with a reliable and long-lasting solar solution.
The extended product lifespan of Trina Solar’s panels makes them an economically wise choice for residential solar installers and homeowners alike. And the TrinaProtect 25-year product and 25-year performance warranty delivers that added peace of mind.
Adopting the revolutionary 435W Vertex S+ panels will let residential solar installers stay ahead in the industry to provide customers with top-notch rooftop solar solutions that will stand the test of time.
By the end of 2023, Trina Solar’s module production capacity is forecast to reach 95GW and cell production capacity is forecast to reach up to 75GW, with 40GW dedicated to n-type cells.
With their higher efficiency, improved temperature and low-light performance, and long-term reliability for the lowest LCOE and best value, Trina Solar’s Vertex N and Vertex S+ modules are quickly becoming the preferred choice for utility-scale solar and C&I project developers, EPCs, and residential solar installers.
