RE+ 2023 tradeshow entered day 2 with another round of new launches and industry discussions over the bright future of the solar industry and their prospects in it.
SEIA’s letter for Congress: With the launch of the tradeshow, SEIA urged the US solar industry to sign a letter to the Congress to preserve policies in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) that it says has sparked $100 billion of new solar and storage investments in the country. These policies will drive $565 billion into the economy by 2033. The industry calls upon the administration to oppose efforts to revoke or weaken IRA clean energy policies.
High power module from REC Group: REC Group officially unveiled its high efficiency and the company’s highest power residential panel to date at the tradeshow (see REC Unveils 470 W New HJT Solar Panel). The REC Alpha Pure-RX offers up to 470 W power rating with heterojunction (HJT) cell technology. The company plans to start its production at its Industry 4.0 fab in Singapore from January 2024. REC said the new module has an increased power density of 226 W/m² or 21 W/ft2. It uses advanced module interconnection with solder-free foil and wire combination to achieve the switch to G12 large wafers and cells on HJT.

SolarEdge’s ‘most powerful’ inverter: SolarEdge Technologies chose the tradeshow to announce the US launch of its new high-power 3-phase SolarEdge 330 kW inverter. It can work for both distributed and centralized location topology, according to the company. The company is now taking orders for this inverter from its US customers for projects scheduled for 2024 and beyond. The company also introduced H1300 Power Optimizer for community solar, agri-PV and small-to-medium scale ground mounted utility projects.
