BQ released new 166 high efficiency module
BQ Solar Tech Co., Ltd. , a world-class solar products manufacturer, rolled out its latest product, the 166 high efficiency module on May 6.
The new 166 module can generate more power with higher efficiency ratings. By cutting the 166mm cells into 6 pieces and replacing the traditional ribbon with electrical conductive adhesive, the new 166 module can have a maximum efficiency of 20.5 percent, with its module power reaching up to 445W.
Solar panel efficiency measures how much of the sun’s energy a certain panel can convert into usable electricity. The energy is converted by capturing the electrical current generated when sunshine interacts with silicon or thin film cells inside a solar panel.
In addition to the high efficiency, the new product has increased reliability and durability, with its attenuation rate 1.7 percent lower than conventional modules.
“As a fully upgraded shingled module, the new product represents a breakthrough made by BQ in the shingled module technology. If innovation is our internal strength, then this new 166 shingled module is our weapon to win the market. BQ is one of the first companies in the industry to start mass production of modules. Over the years, we have continuously strengthened research and development, and striving for excellence. I believe that the new 166 module will bring customers a superior product experience,” said Stone Geng, president of BQ.
In recent years, shingled modules have captured the interest of more and more manufacturers. Shingled modules are expected to see rapid growth in production capacity in the coming years and BQ forecasts that the shingled module will become the mainstream module in the PV market in the long run.
Since its foundation in 2006, BQ has been specializing in research, development, production, innovation and sales of PV products. So far, more than 600MW BQ’s products have been installed in over 40 countries worldwide.
