JA Solar supplies modules for PERC solar power plant in Korea

JA Solar Mexico

JA Solar announced that it supplied all modules for the largest PERC bifacial double-glass solar power plant in South Korea.

The project will promote the application of PERC bifacial double-glass modules in the South Korean market.

JA Solar’s PERC bifacial double-glass modules can further increase energy yield for the PV system and drive down LCOE, providing customers in South Korea who focus on land cost reductions with more access to high-efficiency solar energy products.

The project, located in Gangjin Gun, South Korea, includes two 2.4 MW power plants that were built in two phases. The developer completed the first phase and connected to the grid. The power plants use JA Solar’s bifacial double-glass modules, which incorporate PERC bifacial cell technology and a double-glass module structure with a bifaciality factor of 70 percent and higher.

JA Solar claims that it bifacial double-glass modules have greater power generation capacity, better low-radiation performance and PID resistance performance. Solar developers can use it in harsh environments such as deserts, seaside, etc. and under extreme weather conditions like high temperature, high humidity, etc.

TUV Rheinland, a testing institution, has verified that the energy yield of JA Solar’s PERC bifacial double-glass module is 10.5 percent higher than that of conventional mono modules, which can effectively guarantee the reliability of the power plant system and the return on investment for customers.
