Boviet Solar USA, the North American arm of Boviet Solar Technology Co., Ltd., announced the launch of its new 1,500-volt polycrystalline solar modules. The new high-voltage solar modules are ideal for large commercial and utility-scale solar installations and require less balance of system (BoS) components compared to 1,000-volt modules.
The new 1,500-volt solar modules will be available in a 72-cell configuration with an industry leading 12-year workmanship warranty and a 25-year power output warranty. All Boviet Solar USA modules pass a stringent quality control process that includes a three-time Electro Luminesce Examination and Flash Tests.
“Since entering the U.S. market we have been making strides in providing our customers with exceptionally premium products based on rigorous R&D. With the addition of our 1500-volt module our product line is now even stronger than before,” said Eric Ma, PhD President and Managing Director of Boviet Solar USA.
Industry experts see a variety of advantages to adopting 1,500-volt DC solar systems. For utility-scale installations, higher voltage systems enable longer strings with fewer combiner boxes and less wiring and trenching, which means less cost to install. Research also shows that 1500-volt solar systems can lower energy production costs by as much as $0.05 per watt.
