Waaree Energies launches new crystalline solar PV module

  Waaree Energies announced the launch of the new 1,500 V System Voltage crystalline solar module at the Renewable Energy India Expo, 2016.
“Raising the maximum system voltage to 1,500 V means a potential increase of up to 50 per cent in string length, hence reducing the overall BOS cost. It is an inevitable trend that 1,500 V systems would begin to be installed on a global scale in the future, not so far away. The module still remains PID (Potential Induced Degradation) resistant as per IEC 62804,” the company announced.  Speaking on the launch, Hitesh Doshi, Chairman & Managing Director, Waaree Energies, commented, “1,500 V module comes packed with a whole lot of inherent advantages which are absent in 1,000 V modules. Certain key ones include the lowering of balance of system costs as high voltage systems allows more number of modules to be connected in a single string and thus reduces the number of combiner boxes, shorter runs of wiring, trenching, labor, DC breakers and, overall loss to the system. We believe this new product can perfectly meet the growing demand for higher voltage systems with lower system costs. In fact, installing 1,500 V DC systems in place of the now-used 1,000 V DC can lower costs by as much as $ 0.05 per watt, which by itself is noteworthy.” He adds, “Additionally, installation and maintenance costs also come down once you start using 1,500 V design in PV arrays. This is particularly beneficial to the EPCs as the overhead costs are reduced and margins are expanded.”
