The BlackPearl solar PV modules, which consist of crystalline silicon cells, achieve up to 15.2% conversion efficiency.
The 250 W solar PV module is a 60 cell module comprised of 6 inch black square cells. It features a +0 to +5% positive power tolerance and low oxygen content leading to strong resistance to light-induced degradation.
In addition, the solar PV modules are built to withstand weather conditions including 3.800 N/m² (~270 km/h) wind load and 5.400 N/m² (~55 kg/m²) snow loads.
"The new BlackPearl(TM) module delivers 10% more power than conventional polycrystalline products leading to lower balance-of-system and installation costs per watt," says Dr Zhengrong Shi, Suntech's Chairman and CEO.
