LONGi has released two new series of high-efficiency solar modules — the new generation bifacial Hi-MO4 and REAL BLACK high-efficiency modules.
Hi-MO4 has all the advantages of the previous series of Hi-MO modules, but enhanced with a new generation of advanced monocrystalline PERC cells and the encapsulation technology of half-cell and bifacial construction. Compared to the Hi-MO3 half-cell bifacial module released in 2018, Hi-MO4 retains Hi-MO3 characteristics of bifacial power generation, achieving 8 to 20% gain in back power generation in various ground-surface environments with high reliability and low attenuation.
Hi-MO4 deploys upgraded PERC technology based on six busbars, with cell efficiency reaching 22.5%. While the front-side power Hi-MO3 is 380 W (72 cells), Hi-MO4 increases this to more than 420 W, peaking at 430 W.
When compared to Hi-MO3, balance of system costs — when Hi-MO4 is deployed – can be reduced by approximately 7%, and LCOE by 1.4%. Combined with tracking systems, LCOE can be further reduced.
Released together with Hi-MO4 is an all new, all-black series module, REAL BLACK. REAL BLACK will be available for rooftop PV applications. With its all-black appearance and consistent color, REAL BLACK can be perfectly matched with the roof and local ecology, maximizing aesthetics and high power.
“Efficiently wins and producing cost–effective and high-quality products is the technological innovation of LONGi,” said Li Zhenguo, President of LONGi. “We expect the release of Hi-MO4 will play an important role in reducing the cost of electricity and promoting grid parity. REAL BLACK will bring a new aesthetics and high power to rooftop PV users. LONGi will continue to invest in R&D to develop reliable high efficiency products and helping the PV industry upgrade its technology.”
