JinkoSolar unveils half-cell module
The HC Series delivers an increase of 10Wp per panel when compared to full-cell
JinkoSolar is one of the first companies to realise gigawatt-scale mass-production of half-cell products – by 2018 our HC Series will take the power output of a 60-cell monocrystalline panel to new heights of 330Wp.
These advantages have allowed JinkoSolar to reach unprecedented module shipment numbers. Through a commitment to R&D, state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and tight quality control, JinkoSolar has created the ideal production conditions for industry-leading cell and module innovation.
JinkoSolar’s ambition is to lead the way in technology. The company’s brand new product – the HC Series – combines the half-cut cell layout with different existing cell technologies. The technology has increased the power output of polycrystalline modules to 285 watt-peak (Wp), of monocrystalline modules to 295Wp and of monocrystalline PERC (passivated emitter rear cell) module to 320Wp.
The HC Series delivers an increase of 10Wp per panel when compared with its full-cell conventional counterparts. When compared to its peers, JinkoSolar’s half-cut cell offering, on average, has outputs 5Wp higher.
The primary advantages of JinkoSolar’s HC Series are power boosting and superior price performance, achieving unprecedented price-performance ratios. The 290-300Wp 120 half-cell (60 regular cells cut in half) mono module has comparable performance to that of the mainstream monocrystalline PERC module, but is far more affordable.
In addition, the HC Series features minimisation of hotspot and increased shade tolerance, enabling enhanced reliability and performance ratio in deployment conditions. The series also features high anti-PID (potential induced degradation) qualities.
