C&I: TALLMAX 252-Cell 1/3 Cut PERC MONO Module; DE15V.20(II)

Trina Solar will cross the 450W barrier in Monocrystalline PERC technology for the North America market with the new DE15V.20(II) modules. They feature several innovative design features enabling high power output and module efficiency up to 20.8%, enhancing Trina’s global PV leadership. Technical innovations like superimposed three-slice split cell, non-destructive wafer cutting, higher density form factor with small-cell gaps, improved anti-hot spot performance, and nine bus bars to reduce resistive power losses increase energy harvest while improving module mechanical strength. Trina Solar will start shipping these products in April 2021 in production volumes.

Large-scale: DUOMAX TWIN 252-Cell 1/3 Cut PERC MONO BIFACIAL Module; DEG15VC.20(II)

Trina Solar crosses the 450W barrier in Monocrystalline-PERC technology for the North America market with the DEG15VC.20(II) modules. They feature several innovative design features enabling high power output throughout the guaranteed lifetime of 30 years and module efficiency up to 20.6%, enhancing Trina’s PV leadership. Technical innovations like superimposed three-slice split cell, non-destructive wafer cutting, higher density form factor with small-cell gaps, improved anti-hot spot performance, and nine bus bars to reduce resistive power losses increase energy harvest while improving module mechanical strength. The back-side generation from these tracker-mounted bifacial modules can further increase energy generation by 5%-25%, depending upon project albedo. Trina Solar will ship these bifacial products in April 2021 in production volumes.
