GCL-SI Showcases Industry-leading Black Silicon and PERC Solar Cells at SPI 2017
GCL System Integration Technology Co. Ltd (GCL-SI), a subsidiary of the world’s leading energy group, GCL, exhibited their collection of solar products that adopts its latest black silicon and PERC technologies at Solar Power International (SPI) 2017 in Las Vegas, which is the premier annual solar power industry event in North America.GCL-SI has been developing solar modules that utilize new technologies, specifically black silicon, PERC and diamond wiring. At SPI, the company showcased its latest products, including the Black Silicon 5 Busbar (5BB), Multi-Busbar (MBB) and Double-glass modules. The solar modules with these new technologies are all in a 72-cell format in each configuration.
“Attending SPI gives us more opportunities to introduce ourselves to local companies and make them aware of GCL’s products and technologies. We want them to become familiar with GCL strengths, namely integrated solar energy solutions for home rooftop projects as well as utility power plants,” commented Mr. Dong Shuguang, Executive President of GCL-SI.
Mr. Dong described GCL-SI’s unique business approach during an interview with PV Magazine at SPI. He explains, “To differentiate from other solar energy companies, GCL-SI is able to provide high performance modules at a competitive price to the U.S. market due to the great advantage from integrated industrial chain of the GCL group. GCL-SI also offers design, product, service, finance, and operations as a whole.” He further described that after their opening of a factory in Vietnam, the company is now able to provide 600 MW high-efficiency PERC modules to meet the requirements of the American market.
GCL-SI’s black silicon and PERC solar modules are based on multi-crystalline silicon. Dong adds that GCL-SI will maintain its focus on developing modules using multi-crystalline silicon, while continually researching more innovative ways to integrate black silicon, PERC and diamond wiring. The results will lead to lower costs and increase the efficiency of solar modules. If people are able to harness the full potential of the multi-crystalline material, that would ultimately contribute to broader adoption of solar energy by lowering the LCOE.
In addition to SPI, GCL-SI also attended Green Expo Mexico from September 5th – 7th where they introduced two of its PERC solar cells. This demonstrates the company’s commitment to exploring American markets and to delivering green energy to residents all over the globe.
