Key Takeaways

  • LONGi Solar will be producing solar modules with a power output of 530 W
  • The company will launch its Hi-MO 5 modules with an efficiency exceeding 500 W at the end of May 2020
  • This module series will superimpose 9 busbar and half-cut cell technologies onto a mono PERC base

The race to have the most powerful solar modules in the market is getting exciting! After Trina Solar and Risen Energy, now LONGi Solar has also jumped into the fray. The Chinese solar module maker is set to launch its new ultra-high power 530 W Hi-MO 5 module.

LONGi’s module will have a power conversion efficiency of more than 21%, it said, and the new module will be launched at the end of May 2020. Sharing details of this product on its Twitter handle , the company said Hi-MO 5 will superimpose 9 busbar and half-cut cell technologies onto a mono PERC base.

The management plans to start production of this series starting from the end of August 2020 with an annual capacity of 10 GW. LONGi’s production capacity plans for the 500+ products are higher than for any other brand so far; Trina Solar aims for over 5 GW for its 500 W modules and Risen Energy is reported to have 3 GW of annual capacity for its Titan modules.

JinkoSolar too has joined the race with the launch of its flagship Tiger Pro module series having maximum power output of up to 580 W (see JinkoSolar Modules With Up To 580 W Output).
