The largest bifacial solar module, tracker project in the U.S. to be built in Mitchell County, Georgia
The largest bifacial+tracker power generation project in the United States will be built up in Mitchell County, Georgia, with a capacity of 224 MW, for which LONGi will supply bifacial PERC modules. The project, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2019, will provide adequate clean electricity to more than 30,000 households, and, in the first 10 years of operation, generate more than $12 million of income for the local economy.
The combination of flat uniaxial tracker with bifacial module on the one hand enables the front side of module to continuously track sunlight to realize a power generation gain of more than 15% at appropriate latitude, on the other hand enables the rear side of module to make use of the high reflectivity of the desert environment to obtain a power generation gain of more than 10%. In all, there is a power generation gain of more than 25% compared with the traditional monofacial module + fixed rack PV system.

LONGi’s monocrystalline PERC module has the advantages of low degradation and effective anti-PID ability. Due to high power and bifacial power generation, LONGi’s bifacial PERC module has shown significant power generation advantages in practical application, and become a reliable choice for PV power station investors to achieve lower LCOE.
Higher efficiency means better cost performance. With the continuous large-scale application of bifacial technology and advanced systems, LONGi will continue to bring new changes to the global PV industry with higher-efficiency products, supply products to different environments and challenging projects, provide references for the practical application of clean energy, and promote the continuous reduction of LCOE.
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.
