Major tier-one PV manufacturer JA Solar is to launch its first 1500V PV module.
JA Solar said that the 1500V PV module had passed IEC testing standards for 1500V system voltage bias, passing the PID test under standard conditions, which were carried out by TUV.
“Raising the maximum system voltage to 1500V means a potential increase of up to 50% in string length, reducing costs on the system side,” said Yong Liu, chief technology officer of JA Solar. “It is an inevitable trend that 1500V systems would begin to be installed on a global scale. Our new 1500V PV module is further testament to JA's competitive advantage as a leader in industrial PV technology.”
The new 1500V PV module is being rolled out globally and already presented at several industry exhibitions.
