Suntech unveils high efficiency Polycrystalline Module at Intersolar Europe 2012

By Greentech Lead Europe: Suntech power, a solar panel
manufacturer, will showcase a high efficiency 255-watt polycrystalline module
(STP255-20Wd) at Intersolar Europe 2012. The new 60-cell module utilizes
optimized metallization technology to boost efficiency.

Suntech claims that this new module is one of the most
powerful in its class and can be incorporated into almost any kind of solar

“This 255-watt panel is around 5 percent more powerful
than the industry average and offers one of the best prices to performance
ratios in the market. With ongoing innovation, we are targeting to increase the
nominal power output of this solar panel to 260 watts in the near future,” said Vedat Gurgeli, vice president sales and marketing for Suntech in Europe.

All Suntech modules
offer the 10-year material and workmanship and 25-year power output warranty.
The panels have been built to withstand all weather conditions, including 3.800
Pascal wind load and 5.400 Pascal snow loads, well above IEC standard

The 255W polycrystalline module has been certified
according to the IEC 61701 standard salt mist corrosion test. The module
features an anti-reflective hydrophobic layer that reduces surface dust and
allows the module to absorb more light, achieving superior weak-light
performance and enhanced module performance over time.

Quality components used throughout the module ensure a
long module lifecycle and consistent power output for system owners. In
addition, Suntech subjects its panels to quality tests well above industry
standards to ensure they are among the most reliable in the industry.

Suntech Power supplies 3.4 MW solar panels for solar
installation in California

Suntech recently supplied 3.4 MW of solar panels for a
solar installation at Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California. Borrego
Solar, a solar solutions provider, has designed, financed, and installed solar
installation at Edwards Air Force Base at no upfront cost to Edwards Air Force
Base. The 12,000 solar panels were made at Suntech’s manufacturing
facility in Goodyear, Arizona.
