LONGi Introduces Premier ‘Onyx’ Solar Panel for Rooftop Applications

  • LONGi has released its Hi-RO Onyx – a premium solar panel designed for use in all rooftop applications.
  • Based on LONGi proprietary monocrystalline wafer, Onyx adopts LONGi’s innovative solar cell and module technology to deliver the highest efficiency and reliability.
  • The cell is half-cut with Zero Busbar (ZBB) technology, with no visible busbars.

Onyx is a series of high-efficiency, high-power modules designed for rooftop applications in the residential segment. It excels where high power generation is required in limited rooftop space and where aesthetics is important. Maximum power reaches 400Wp and module efficiency is up to 22.2%

The series includes two monofacial module products. The 390Wp full-black version (HTB) has aesthetics that compliments the typical rooftops of European homes while the standard version (HTH) with white backsheet maximizes power output to 400Wp.

Onyx modules show outstanding energy generation due to its Zero Busbar (ZBB) technology with maximum light capture and low reflection, lower power degradation (first year 1.5%, linear degradation 0.5%), lower temp. coefficient (0.29%/°C) and better low irradiation performance (According to 3rd party test results, at low irradiation, Onyx delivered the highest energy generation when compared with market standard modules). These features, working together with its ZBB technology and no shading on the frontside, allows Onyx to deliver outstanding power performance.

Onyx comes with 25 years product warranty.

“Hi-RO Onyx is a new product in LONGi portfolio built from the ground up for distributed generation segments with premium features.” commented Dennis She, LONGi Solar’s Senior Vice President. “LONGi Solar now has a full-range product portfolio consisting of Hi-MO 4, Hi-MO 5, Hi MO N and the new Hi-RO Onyx, with each product series optimized for different application scenarios.

LONGi Solar is a world leading manufacturer of high-efficiency mono-crystalline solar cells and modules. 

LONGi Solar has 15 manufacturing bases and more than 30 branches around the world. The company produces monocrystalline silicon wafers and modules, delivering solutions for distributed and ground mount power station systems. The company’s shipments have been among the industry’s highest for a number of years and, in 2020, it became the first manufacturer to ship more than 20GW of modules in a year.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
