From Modules to Components, SolarWorld Showcases Advances in Every Facet of Solar Solutions at Intersolar
Intersolar North America 2014
MONTREAL--(LadyDragon.com)12/07/14--12.51pm EST, LadyDragon wrote - SolarWorld will present an across-the-board lineup of technological advances affecting all key products of solar-system solutions during the solar-industry trade show Intersolar North America in San Francisco this week.
SolarWorlds wide-ranging offerings respond to diversifying needs of customers
HILLSBORO, Ore.--Advances range from the companys Sunmodule XL a high-power 72-cell mono-crystalline solar panel to innovations in 60-cell panels, mounting systems and inverters. SolarWorld solar panels and systems are also among the first to meet stricter new fire-safety requirements. The expanded product portfolio and certifications highlight SolarWorlds resolve to meet the rising diversity and evolving needs of customers in North America, where SolarWorld has been the largest crystalline silicon solar manufacturer for nearly 40 years.
SolarWorld is ramping up its product offerings in step with the tremendous and fast-growing variety of our customer base, said Ardes Johnson, U.S. vice president of sales and marketing for SolarWorld. The product and technology advances we are presenting this year at Intersolar reflect our resolve to hone our solar solutions to maximize customers businesses.
Available at commercial volume only since spring, the 72-cell Sunmodule XL already is shipping in volumes of dozens of megawatts to U.S. commercial and utility-scale buyers. The product, offered at up to 315 watts, is among the highest-performing 72-cell solar panels available. The Sunmodule XL will be on display at SolarWorlds booth (No. 7521).
Along with SolarWorlds entire line of 60-cell mono- and poly-crystalline solar panels, the Sunmodule XL is among the first solar panels to have undergone complete spread-of-flame fire performance testing and been classified according to the updated Standard UL (Underwriters Laboratory) 1703. In light of the characteristics of their materials and construction, SolarWorlds Sunmodule Plus, Sunmodule Pro and Sunmodule XL solar panels are classified as Type 1. SolarWorlds Sunmodule Protect glass-glass solar panels are classified as Type 3.
The result of the testing regimen: When combined with Class A mounting systems such as SolarWorlds Sunfix Plus racking product SolarWorld solar panels achieve a photovoltaic fire system rating of Class A, a fire-code requirement that went into effect June 1 in parts of California.
In addition to producing solar panels and racking, SolarWorld partners with other best-in-class manufacturers to distribute other solar products that measure up to the companys exacting quality and durability standards. This year, SolarWorlds booth will feature inverters from partners SMA and Enphase. SolarWorld Enphases first and only global module partner distributes Enphases M215 and M250, the industrys leading microinverters. The company also sells SMAs new Sunny Boy TL product line, the first inverters available in North America that can continue delivering power from solar systems to homes or businesses during daytime power outages. Both SMA and Enphase inverters figure prominently in SolarWorld System Solutions, the companys complete pre-engineered and custom-engineered solar systems.
SolarWorld also has teamed with U.S. racking-system manufacturer PanelClaw to distribute a ballasted mounting solution for low-slope commercial roofs. New this year, SolarWorld will sell PanelClaws Polar Bear III flat-roof system. The Polar Bear III offers a higher loading capacity and longer warranty than the industry standard at a lower price and with lower shipping costs, thanks to locally sourced ballast material, higher packing density and warehouses on both coasts. Polar Bear III is made in America according to PanelClaws stringent quality standards and will be on display at the SolarWorld booth.
