LONGi renewable energy

LONGi announced the launch of a new solar module specifically designed for residential and commercial applications in the U.S. market.

The Hi-MO 5 54-cell module, based on the new market standard M10 182-mm-monocrystaline wafer, will be available in early 2023, first as a monofacial module with a bifacial module to follow later in the year.

The Hi-MO 5 54-cell module features power outputs up to 420 watts and maximum efficiencies of 21.5 percent. The monofacial module has a 12-year warranty for materials and processing and a 25-year warranty for linear power output. The bifacial module will be a dual-glass design and carries a 12-year warranty for materials and processing and a 30-year warranty for linear power output.

The Hi-MO 5 54-cell, weighing less than 50 lbs, can be installed easily on rooftops, and is compatible with standard module racking and mounting systems. The Hi-MO 5 54-cell is compatible with smart module-level power electronics (MLPE) devices such as Enphase microinverters and SolarEdge optimizers as well as mainstream string inverters.

LONGi’s Hi-MO 5 series won the 2021 Intersolar Award for its advanced PERC gallium-doped p-type half-cut cell technology, smart soldering and other innovations, and has earned Top Performer awards from RETC and other independent labs.

LONGi claims that it supplied Hi-MO 5 modules to more than 600 customers in 90 countries, with  cumulative shipments exceeding 30 gigawatts.
