Boviet Solar USA kicked off 2017 with a couple new product announcements — its newest state-of-the-art solar modules and a new rooftop solar module with built-in rail-less systems.
New solar modules
Boviet’s new 2017 solar modules include a 72-cell polycrystalline PERC module with power output from 330W to 335W and a 72-cell monocrystalline PERC module with a power output from 340W to 345W.
Thanks to PERC technology, a solar module can deliver up to 10 percent more power in a smaller PV footprint. PERC panels are more efficient and come with the same effective lifespan and warranties as other modules, therefore delivering more power-per-dollar over the life of the solar array. Boviet polycrystalline modules deliver 97.5 percent of rated power capacity in year one and are guaranteed to deliver 80.7 percent power after 25 years.
Boviet also is introducing new triple black PERC 60-cell modules – black frame, black back sheet, and black PV cells. The new 60-cell PERC panels are rated for a power output of 280W to 290W for the poly version and 285W to 290W for the mono version.
New rail-less integration
To simplify rooftop installation, Boviet will also begin shipping a new 60-cell triple-black mono module with an integrated mounting system and power optimizer. Rated at 275-280W output, these new modules were developed in partnership with Spice Solar and SolarEdge and have built-in rail-less systems that enables these modules to be installed in less than half the time of conventional rooftop arrays.
“We are seeing more demand for high-efficiency modules, especially as the manufacturing cost of PERC n-type modules continues to drop,” said Eric Ma, PhD., President and General Manager of Boviet Solar USA. “Thanks to our superior engineering and manufacturing capabilities, Boviet is able to offer one of the most comprehensive lines of high-efficiency solar modules available. Our objective is to give distributors and installers the right product at the right price from a single supplier – Boviet Solar USA.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
