Upsolar Introduces Monocrystalline Modules Featuring 6-inch Cells


SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Upsolar, a leading international provider of solar PV modules, today announced two new additions to its portfolio of high-quality products: monocrystalline modules with 6-inch cells, available in both 60-cell and 72-cell configurations. Implementing the same popular design as its existing modules, Upsolar now offers customers its highest wattage levels to date: 255 Wp and 310Wp, respectively.

Compliant with both International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Underwriters Laboratory (UL) standards, these products build upon the success of Upsolar’s monocrystalline modules featuring 5-inch cells. Installers can adjust wattage levels in 5Wp increments to best suit a customer’s power needs. Both products are available with white or black backsheets for additional customization.

The company anticipates strong demand for 6-inch monocrystalline options in a global market hungry for high-efficiency technologies, most notably the US and in the leading building-integrated PV (BIPV) markets of France and Italy.

“Upsolar constantly strives to satisfy the diverse technical requirements of our partners’ projects. With the addition of 6-inch monocrystalline modules with both black and white backsheet options, Upsolar now provides a full range of crystalline technologies,” said Stephane Dufrenne, Chief Technology Officer for Upsolar. “We designed our new modules in response to a demand for products with higher efficiency. This equates to reductions in balance of systems and installation costs across all installation types and is especially important for residential PV systems, where rooftop space is limited.”

All Upsolar modules are covered by the PowerCLIP warranty from PowerGuard Specialty Insurance Services. Backed by PowerGuard’s network of insurance providers – all with A.M. Best Financial Strength Ratings of “A” (Excellent) or better. This non-cancelable policy offers protection from product defects and abnormal degradation for 25 years.

“We pride ourselves on offering the industry’s best quality-to-price ratio, and we’re raising the bar with the introduction of our six-inch monocrystalline series of modules,” said Zhe Jiang, CEO of Upsolar. “Our comprehensive portfolio of customizable crystalline modules, combined with unmatched product coverage options, make Upsolar products the best solar investment on the market today.”
