Wuxi Suntech is launching a solar photovoltaic module at the upcoming Solar Power International in California.

The company plans to launch the 1,500V high system voltage module in October.

According to a statement, the module engineered for utility-scale and commercial applications give users savings of 3-4 percent in balance of system costs compared with 1,000V modules.

Among its other features, the modules are lighter than contemporary models and have fewer components making installation easier.

Besides the new model Suntech will also be displaying two of its recent upgrades — SuperPoly and HyPro line modules.

The SuperPoly polycrystalline module integrates an in-depth reflection technology and passivation process. It enables the module to generate at least 2 power classes (approximately 10W) higher than the average industry-level module. It takes the efficiency levels of the module to 16.6 percent.

The SuperPoly 72 cell module, the company claims, is ideal for utility scale projects and produces 325W at peak performance.

The HyPro line modules of Suntech feature PERC technology.

The statement adds that all the modules Suntech is to display are four-busbar variety.

Also they are potential induced degradation (PID) free making them perform well in low light.

Suntech will be display its product lines at SPI in Anaheim, California from September 14-17 at booth number 4736.
