Trina Solar received the esteemed Innovation Award for the company's Duo-Max module, a 72-cell frameless dual glass module (PEG14 series) at the Mexico International Renewable Energy Conference (MIREC), held this week in Mexico City.
"Trina Solar is proud to receive this recognition from MIREC for innovation in renewable energy technology. Our Duo-Max module leads the industry in module durability and performance, delivering superior value during its lifetime," said Jing Tian, Trina Solar's Head of Global Marketing.
The durability of Duo-Max starts with two sheets of heat-strengthened glass and a special edge seal to create a PID and micro-crack resistant panel. It is certified against sand, salt, mist, ammonia, alkali and hail. The durable glass-on-glass design makes Duo-Max the solar panel of choice for systems installed in regions with hot temperatures and humid climates.
The glass-on-glass module has a maximum system voltage of 1500 volts, which allows for more modules per string and reduces balance of system costs. With just a 0.5% annual degradation rate, the Duo-Max modules deliver more energy over its lifetime than a conventional module. The proven durability of Duo-Max is combined with a 30-year warranty to provide unmatched customer satisfaction.
