Exel Solar, one of the largest independent distributors of PV products in Mexico, announced a strategic partnership with Sunpreme Inc. to offer Smart Bi-facial PV Modules, one of the most advanced product available on the market. With nationwide coverage throughout Mexico, Exel Solar has been offering world-class distribution capabilities since 2012.
“Our strategic partnership with Sunpreme gives us a huge advantage since we are able to offer to the Mexican market a truly technically advanced Smart PV Module with proven reliability at a competitive price. Sunpreme brings a strong technical collaboration and professional customer support to this partnership,” said Horacio Duhart, President and CEO at Exel Solar. “We are offering a powerful value proposition to drive business growth, and we are excited to work with Sunpreme, their customer-driven culture of technical excellence and high quality products.”
Headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, Sunpreme is a global solar PV company that designs, develops and manufactures its proprietary HCT. Sunpreme’s Bi-facial double glass frameless modules have an STC output of 300 W-500W.
Sunpreme Smart Modules offer customers functionality that maximizes energy yield and peak string level AC/DC ratio using impedance matching technology. These units lower system costs by increasing string length by up to 30 percent, resulting in fewer BOS components. The Smart Module components work together to communicate wirelessly through the gateway, allowing users to monitor system performance accurately in real time, while meeting NEC 690.12 rapid shutdown safety standards. The modules feature 21.5% efficient cells that enable 310 W 60-cell and 370 W 72-cell modules, and a low thermal coefficient of -0.28%/C. The Bi-facial technology allows the module to absorb light from both sides, increasing energy yield (kWh per kWp).
“We are privileged to partner with a premier distributor in making Sunpreme available to Exel Solar´s strong customer base in Mexico. Exel Solar presents us with a strategic and immediate downstream opportunity in the growing Mexico Solar Market,” said Surinder S. Bedi, Executive Vice President for Market Development, System Products, and Global Quality & Reliability at Sunpreme.
