We’re entering PV3.0 and high-efficiency monocrystalline panel dominance

By Wenxue Li, president of LONGI Solar, Solar Power World

PV3.0 will be marked by a return to the high-yielding and reliable monocrystalline cell technology. Due to the higher efficiency associated with monocrystalline modules, developers can also pack the same amount of generating power into a smaller footprint. This translates into cost savings during project development, as high-quality modules allow for less labor, fewer materials and much less overall maintenance. There is also less degradation associated with monocrystalline technology, ensuring the longevity of projects and savings from delaying system replacements. Read more here.
