PV industry keeps rapid development on higher output and efficiency module (e.g.: half cell solar panel) with lower cost, especially the high standard from China’s top-runner projects and EU key customers.
As a leader, Couleenergy is well-known for its innovative and quality solar panels. To continuously meet customer demands and lead the market trend, the Couleenergy half cell solar panels (CLM-400M-72(H) Series & CLM-330M-60(H) Series) made their first appearance in 2018 and raised extensive attention.
CLM-390M-72(L) length and width increase 23mm and 10mm respectively with average 8Wp power up. CLM-400M-72(H) length and width increase 52mm and 10mm respectively with average 15Wp power up.
Advantages of Half Cell Solar Panels
Half-cut cell solar panels are exactly what their name suggests – they are traditional silicon solar cells that have been cut in half using a laser cutter. Half-cut solar panels provide several benefits over traditional solar panels. Most importantly, half-cut cell solar panels offer improved performance and durability. Performance-wise, Couleenergy mono PERC half cell solar panels can increase panel efficiencies by a few percentage points. And in addition to better production numbers, half cell solar panels is more physically durable than their traditional counterparts; because they are smaller in size, they’re more resistant to cracking. Due to these advantages, Couleenergy half cell panels have the potential to provide quicker solar payback periods for property owners installing solar energy systems.
Especially for installations where shading and limited space are constraining factors, half-cut cell solar panels can make a solar PV installation even more worth the upfront cost.
Couleenergy half cell panels will become mainstream products in the near future and is beneficial for customers to save system cost with more power generation.
The power output of CLM-400M-72(H) reaches 400Wp which is a great solution for homeowners who want to get more electricity from their roof or save roof space for future system expansion.
To achieve the same installed capacity, Couleenergy half cell solar panels will need fewer module numbers, roof area, and weight. The shadow of trees and chimneys can reduce electricity output severely. Half cell technology can improve power output and minimize hot-spot by less power loss.
Lower BOS, Lower LCOE and Higher IRR
A Solar PV Balance-of-System or BOS refers to the components and equipment that move DC energy produced by solar panels through the conversion system which in turn produces AC electricity. Most often, BOS refers to all components of a PV system other than the modules.
Outstanding Temperature Coefficient
Solar panel output is reduced as temperature rises. Nevertheless, the Couleenergy half cell solar panel performs much better than the industry standard due to its outstanding temperature coefficient. Couleenergy half cell solar panel will bring more output under high temperatures.
Quality and Reliability
Couleenergy half cell solar panels are tested above and beyond international standards. Aiming to use lab conditions to simulate 25 years of service life, we push our PV panels to withstand conditions far above what they will likely experience. Be confident that your Couleenergy panels will last the tests of time.
Half is More
When considering a solar installation, the idea of ‘more’ is at the forefront – produce more energy, save (or earn) more money and do more good for the environment, in the case of rooftops where there is a limited amount of space available, using Couleenergy solar panels with half-cut cell technology can help. Since half cell solar panels produce more power and are more efficient and reliable than their full-cell counterparts, their use can lead to time and money savings for the installer.
