Solar Panel Solution Meets C&I Demand

Even though module sizes for utility-scale projects continue to expand, ranging from 500W up to a whopping 700W, this also means size and weight increase as well. This is no issue for giant solar parks but Mexico’s fast-developing distributed generation (DG) market often relies on rooftops and other limited spaces. LONGi Solar’s Hi-MO 4m modules are smaller, lighter and comply with all the technical market conditions as well, making them ideally suitable for environments found in the C&I environment.

The Hi-MO 4m series offers three different module types: 60C, 66C and 72C, covering power ranges of 370-385W, 410-420W and 450-460W, with maximum efficiency of up to 21 percent. At maximum power, the current of the Hi-MO4m module remains below 11A, perfectly matching string inverters, power optimizers and micro inverters of any brand.

LONGi’s modules are renowned for their performance, yield and sustainability. In addition, PV Magazine tests have shown that their outdoor energy yield significantly outperformed similar products. LONGi has also won awards in tests done by TÜV Rheinland’s “All Quality Matters” and the Renewable Energy Test Center (RETC) PV Module Index report.

LONGi has also introduced gallium-doping on its wafers, which decreases first-year degradation of the module and increases its useful life. To serve its global customers more efficiently, LONGi is expanding the capacity of its dedicated DG production line to 10GW in 2021.
