Though no spring chicken in the weight department (80lbs), Kyocera has launched its highest output multicrystalline module in the US market. The 80 high efficiency 156mm x 156mm solar cell KD 315, comes with a 315W performance (+5% / -3%) tolerance. Being the US, the KD 315 comes with an aesthetically pleasing black anodized frame.
“Kyocera’s KD 315 is an outstanding solution for large-scale installations that demand top quality, high output photovoltaic modules,” stated Steve Hill, president of Kyocera Solar, Inc. “By combining higher output per unit with Kyocera’s superior field performance, KD 315 modules can offer system owners an even greater return on investment.”
The module comes with claimed easily accessible ground points as well as proven junction box technology with 12 AWG PV wire to work with transformerless inverters. The module also comes with locking plug-in connectors for quick connections.
