LONGi Solar releases new solar module Hi-MO2, starting a new era of high efficiency mono PERC bifacial technology
SHANGHAI, April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/

On April 19, SNEC PV Power Expo 2017 kicked off in Shanghai. President Li 
Zhenguo of LONGi Group and President Li Wenxue of LONGi Solar unveiled a 
heavyweight new solar module--Hi-MO2 to the audience. The product boasts high 
power, high energy yield and low LCOE, and will start a new era of high 
efficiency monocrystalline PERC bifacial power generation technology. 


Hi-MO2 is a bifacial power generation product developed based on 
monocrystalline bifacial PERC technology; the power of the 72-cell module 
reaches 360-365W, while the power of the 60-cell module reaches 300-305W. The 
front side is equivalent to conventional PERC with cell efficiency exceeding 
21%. Meanwhile, the back side adopts a glass package, achieving bifacial light 
reception and power generation. Backside efficiency is no less than 75% that of 
the front side. The backside can increase energy yield up to 25% (varying with 
the design and background condition of the PV system), and can bring higher 
returns to the investors. 

Last year, LONGi Solar launched Hi-MO1 based on advanced PERC cell technology 
and mono-Si low LID solution. The Hi-MO2 developed on the basis of Hi-MO1's low 
LID technology and bifacial PERC technology can achieve first-year degradation 
less than 2%, and average annual degradation less than 0.45%, both superior to 
conventional modules. 

"Hi-MO2 extends the strengths of mono PERC to the backside of the module, and 
can achieve higher power and higher energy yield without increasing costs, 
which will help decrease the LCOE, and bring more value for PV power plant 
investors," said Li Wenxue, President of LONGi Solar. "Improving efficiency and 
providing low-price high-quality products has always been the technology 
innovation ideal upheld by LONGi. LONGi has the confidence to continuously 
provide high efficiency monocrystalline PV products with the best cost 
performance ratio for global customers, to use technology to speed up progress 
towards grid parity, and to make more contributions to improving environment 

LONGi Solar's 365W Hi-MO2 module has reached mass production. In the future, 
Hi-MO2 will be widely used in large scale utility power plant, commercial 
rooftop, fishery-PV integrated floating power plant and other distributed PV
