Trina Solar gives a “second chance”
traditional solar panels when an electron reaches the back surface of the panel
it loses its ability to contribute to the electricity generation process.
However, with Trina Solar’s Passivated Emitter Rear Cell (PERC) technology
electrons now literally have a “second chance” to be actively involved in the
electricity generation. The electrons work on a bounce back effect that brings
them to the front of the panel periodically which generates more electricity.
These efficiency improved solar panels are now being widely used across the
world and have become an instant success due to their efficiency and high rate
Speaking on the launch of this innovative product, a representative from JLanka Technologies notes, “JLanka Technologies has always been a company known for its innovation and ability to bring sustainable energy solutions to Sri Lanka. With this new Trina Solar PERC technology the possibilities are endless, especially since we are a tropical country with sunshine for most of the year. The power generation capacities of the solar panels are greater with these panels and we look forward to many new customers benefiting by choosing this product as their energy solution.”
Explaining the technology - More power at Low Light
|PERC technology will generate more current due to the reflection of light at the backside of the cell.|
However, with PERC technology it increases the overall panel performance by increasing a cell’s ability to capture light. It creates a new layer between the top layer and the back layer of the solar cell structure. When an electron of a red light reaches this new layer, it will reflect the electron towards the top layer and gives the electron a second chance to generate current. This enables not just greater efficiency but also reduces temperature, and generates more power in weak light.
A residential solar panel system generally consists of about 20-30 panels while an industrial set-up is made up of about 700. As each panel built with the PERC technology becomes more efficient, the entire system generates more power. As solar panels come with a 25 year warranty, it would amount to a large production of electricity over the years saving customers money and contributing greatly to environment protection. These are all benefits that JLanka customers who choose the latest PERC technology solar panels can enjoy.
The latest solar panels built to PERC technology will be exclusively available at JLanka Technologies in capacities to suit both the domestic and industrial markets.
