The project contains Yingli Solar’s monocrystalline PANDA modules, which utilize innovative new technologies that are enabled in part by advanced materials from DuPont. The companies share a commitment to accelerate the broader adoption of solar energy to address the world’s growing energy needs.
Yingli Solar’s dedicated distributed generation team was responsible for the system’s design, installation, and interconnection. The project is expected to produce 202,000 kilowatt hours of solar-generated electricity each year, which is roughly the amount of electricity 670 households consume every month in China.
It is the 14th solar installation at a DuPont site to date. More than 11 million kilowatt hours of solar energy are produced at DuPont facilities annually.
Covering over 2100 square meters, the DuPont China R&D Center solar installation contains Yingli’s monocrystalline product line, PANDA. These panels maximize power output with Yingli’s unique, n-type PANDA solar cells, which are made using new DuPont Solamet® PV3Nx silver and aluminum metallization pastes . To help ensure long-term durability, DuPont Tedlar® film-based backsheets in a double layer construction were specified, and lightweight framing materials from DuPont were utilized to decrease the weight on the roof and ease installation.
