India-based renewable energy developer ACME Clean-tech Solutions has placed an order with the dedicated N-type monocrystalline module manufacturer Jolywood (Taizhou) Solar Technology Co. Ltd (Jolywood) thus making it the first company to supply its bifacial modules to a decent sized 6.7MW project in India.
Bifacial modules offer the potential for higher yields than conventional mono-facial modules, while production costs are negligibly higher than a similar solar cell process such as PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) technology.
In a press release Jolywood Solar said, “The cooperation with ACME is only our first step in India market. Double-side generation, zero LID, lower working temperature, with these features, Jolywood N-pert products are very competitive for a high temperature environment such as India. We truly believe that our products can bring 10% or even more additional power for every solar plant, to lower the LCOE and also increase the IRR. We are looking forward to having a further cooperation with ACME, working together to expand more application of N-pert products, not only to bring lower LCOE and higher IRR for the investors, but also to provide affordable energy for India Market.”
