LONGI Unveils a New Solar Panel for Residential and C&I Rooftop Appplications

  • Leading global solar technology company LONGi, headquartered in Xi’an, China, has released a new module, the Hi-MO 5m 54c.
  • With 54 cells, this new Hi-MO 5mmodule is designed mainly for residential and C&I rooftop systems, produces a maximum power output of 415W, and achieves an efficiency of 21.25%.
  • The new panels have a manageable size of 1722mm x 1134mm.

The new Hi-MO 5m 54-cell module will expand LONGi’s award-winning Hi-MO 5 product line, which has seen unprecedented popularity in large-scale installations thanks to its advanced technology, reliability, and excellent performance. The addition of this new module makes the Hi-MO 5 product family available as well for small and medium-sized C&I applications.

Hi-MO 5 products use M10 (182mm) industry standard solar cells. Boundary conditions for design and application of PV modules must account for varying conditions across different links of the supply and value chain. The Hi-MO 5m’s 182mm half-cut cells have proven to be optimal for all manufacturing processes, from ingots and wafers to cells and modules. They are also optimal for module deployment processes, transportation, installation, and overall system integration.

Hi-MO 5m 54-cell modules feature PERC Gallium-doped p-type half-cut cells with the highest resistance against light aging (lowest LID) for maximum energy yield and are backed with a 25-year performance warranty. This technology has won performance and technology awards from the Renewable Energy Testing Center (RETC) and PV Evolution Labs (PVEL).

The Hi-MO 5m performs well in low-light conditions (such as morning and evening) and even unfavourable lighting angles, with excellent temperature coefficients. Moreover, integrated segmented ribbon technology traps more light into the solar cell, simultaneously reducing cell stress.

With a module size of 1722mm by 1134mm, the Hi-MO 5m 54-cell module offers a higher standard of design and versatility, easy handling and installation. The Hi-MO 5m 54-cell series supports most standard mounting systems clamping on the long and short sides of the module frame, as well as lay-in or slide-in systems and elevation systems with module edge clamping. The modules are also compatible with most popular inverters. Their short circuit current is low and well below 15 Amps. At less than 2m² in size and less than 23kg in weight, the module small and light enough for one person to install.

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.
