Trina Solar upgraded 210 Vertex modules to provide excellent product experience; TaiyangNews webinar to discuss European solar market; Linyang to transfer 100% equity of its 5 subsidiaries; NSU to invest in various PV projects; Silicon material price up to RMB 255,000/ ton.
Trina Solar’s 210 Vertex modules with higher power: Trina Solar’s 210 Vertex module has been innovated and upgraded again, the Chinese solar module manufacturer said on its official website. The power of the next-generation Vertex module has been increased by 30 W, and it is the first to be applied in globally distributed scenarios. The power of the Vertex S has risen to 430 W, and the 550 W Vertex module has been increased to 580 W. This increase, the company emphasizes, is providing excellent product experience and return on investment to distributed household rooftops, industrial and commercial segments and some preferred ground power station customers. In terms of conversion efficiency, the two modules reach up to 21.5%.
TaiyangNews Webinar on European Solar Developments 2022: If anyone is interested to learn the latest on solar supply, demand and prices, then the Webinar TaiyangNews is hosting on 21 April 2022, from 10:00 to 11.30 (CEST) is the place to be.
