What’s Going On?
Things are moving quickly in the solar industry these days, but it mostly revolves around module form factor. While module efficiencies have crept up to the 19-21% mark, most manufacturers are releasing higher power modules simply by increasing the module frame size. So, read the spec sheets, and choose what will best fit your available space.
The other trend is towards aesthetics. All-black modules are getting better & better. A few of the less expensive module brands (Canadian, Longi) still feature prominent silver busbar ribbons in their all-black modules (don’t be fooled by Photoshopped brochure images). Although not as ‘black’ as the premium REC, TRINA, and Hanwha All-Black modules, they are a good option for the budget.
