SEG Solar Releases ALPINE N Series Modules, Pioneering the 700W+ Solar Revolution
SEG Solar (SEG), a leading U.S. producer of photovoltaic (PV) modules for the utility, commercial, and residential markets, launched its new ALPINE N series modules at a grand ceremony held at the 2024 GENERA exhibition in Madrid, Spain, on February 7th.
The SEG ALPINE N series modules incorporate cutting-edge technologies, including N-type TOPCon cells, 210*210mm large silicon wafers, Super Multi-busbar (SMBB) design, and nondestructive cutting. With a module power of 700W and an efficiency of 22.53%, the series provides key advantages: high efficiency, high power output, high energy yield, high reliability, high bifaciality, and a low-temperature coefficient, BoS, and LCOE.
The new series modules aim to offer customers an exceptional product experience with outstanding all-around performance. Using SMBB technology, the modules reduce internal electrical losses and enhance optical utilization. The non-destructive cutting process minimizes damage to solar cells, lowering the risk of hidden cracks and improving manufacturing yield. The design includes a small gap between cells, reducing the distance from 2mm to 0.6mm, resulting in a 0.2-0.3% increase in module efficiency.
Drawing on its extensive technical expertise, SEG conducted thorough research on the challenges of terminal application scenarios, aiming to enhance product reliability in real-world usage. Compared to PERC modules of the same capacity, the ALPINE N series can reduce BoS costs by 1.4% to 2.8% and lower LCOE by 0.7% to 1.6%. With first-year degradation as low as 1%, linear degradation reducing to 0.4% annually, and a 15-year material warranty along with a 30-year power warranty, customers can expect longer-term energy output and return on investment.
Founded in 2016, SEG is a leading vertically integrated PV manufacturer headquartered in Houston, Texas, the U.S., and is dedicated to delivering reliable and cost-effective solar panels to the market. SEG will have more than 5.5 GW of global module production capacity in 2024. By the end of 2022, more than 2GW of SEG products have been installed in the U.S. and European markets.
