Trina Solar's Honey PV module hits 335.2 W peak power
Oct 14, 2014 - Chinese photovoltaics (PVs) maker Trina Solar Ltd (NYSE:TSL) said today it has reached peak power output of 335.2 W for its Honey P-type monocrystalline silicon photovoltaic (PV) module.
The achievement will help solar electricity to achieve grid parity with the common thermal power sources by reducing expenses, the company explained. This way solar energy could become accessible to a greater number of people in the future.
The result was independently certified by TUV Rheinland. It surpassed the company's previous peak of 326.3 W for the same type of cells.
The new module uses 60 high-efficiency Honey monocrystalline silicon cells. It was developed by its research and development (R&D) team in its State Key Lab of PV Science and Technology.
