Chinese Trina Solar has unveiled a new addition to its Vertex solar module line. Its new Vertex S+ panels have an output power of up to 425W, with a peak efficiency of 21.9%.
The new product, which uses 210mm slabs and features a double-glass design instead of the conventional glass and backsheet structure, has been specifically designed for residential installations and commercial and industrial rooftop networks ( THIS).
Trina Solar Asia Pacific President Todd Li said on Thursday that the double-glazed panel was designed to resist performance degradation and provide increased efficiency and durability, especially in hot and humid environments.
“The Vertex S+ module we are launching today is a perfect fit for Australia,” he said. “This is the very first 425W module in Australia that comes with double glass rather than a backsheet. The double glazing is more durable allowing the module to operate even in very hot or hot environments and wet.
Trina said the panel combines innovative technologies such as its N-type PACO Cell technology, 210mm diameter wafers, multiple busbar (MBB), non-destructive cutting and high-density packaging. Li said the easy-to-install Vertex S+ weighs 21.5kg, making it ideal for Australian rooftops.
“The module was designed for easy-to-handle installation thanks in part to its light weight and the fact that it is compatible with existing consumer mounting systems, optimizers and inverters for residential and C&I applications,” said he said, noting that the Vertex S+ module comes with a 25-year product warranty and a 30-year power supply warranty.
Trina said the new, more powerful Vertex module is in line with the trend in the Australian rooftop segment for more powerful systems. Li added that Australian households are now turning to higher wattage modules to meet their needs, while C&I companies are turning to rooftop solar to offset rising electricity prices.
Trina expects to start shipping the panels in April, with the first batch expected to arrive in Australia later that month. Li said the decision to launch the new module in Australia was deliberate, as it aims to “strengthen our position as Australia’s No.1 solar module brand and capitalize on the tremendous growth in the commercial, industrial and residential solar market here. “.
“We anticipate that after today’s launch, we will further increase our lead in Australia as the country’s number one solar module brand,” he said.
Figures released in February by solar market research firm Sunwiz show Trina was Australia’s most popular module brand in 2021. In a recent report, Sunwiz said Trina increased its market share to 14 %, while the country deployed a record 5.2 GW of PV. It enjoys high market share in residential, C&I and large-scale segments.
Trina launched its Vertex 670W panel in March 2021. A month earlier, it launched the Vertex S 390W-405W panel in Australia.
