Mission Solar Enters Rooftop Solar Market
Mission Solar Energy announced the addition of four new module lines to their product offering. The Apollo, Mercury, Gemini and Gemini Elite modules utilize advanced technology to provide best-in-class efficiency, reliability, power and aesthetics. The Mercury modules mark Mission's entry into the rooftop solar market. The modules, all manufactured/assembled in the United States, will be available for preview this week at Solar Power International 2016. All products will be available to the public in early 2017.
The new products include: Mercury: The Mercury is Mission Solar Energyâ€™s first product designed specifically for the rooftop market. The Mercury is a 60-cell module capable of producing 300W of power. The module also utilizes PERC technology and 4 busbars to produce module-level efficiency over 18%. In addition, the modules sleek, aesthetically-pleasing black-on-black design makes it ideal for commercial and residential rooftop installations.
Apollo; The Apollo is a 72-cell module capable of producing a class-leading 360W of power. The module utilizes Passive Emitter Rear Cell (PERC) technology and four busbars to drive module-level efficiency greater than 18%. The Apollo allows users to reduce system costs through robust design, 1,500V compatibility and simple installation.
Gemini: The Gemini bifacial module features 72 N-type monocrystalline cells capable of producing 330W of power from the front side and additional power off the backside for up to 400W of total power. Use of N-type cell technology makes this module ideal for use in harsh climates including snow and desert conditions. The N-type cells are not subject to light induced degradation (LID), allowing the modules to harvest maximum energy.
Gemini Elite: The Gemini Elite is a 72-cell, dual-glass bifacial module that produces up to 330W of power plus additional power off the back side for a potential 400W of power. This module features excellent durability, no potential induced degradation (PID) and a Class A fire rating. The Gemini Eliteâ€™s attractive, frameless design is ideal for carports, breezeways and built-in locations. Like the Gemini, the Gemini Elite is not subject to LID and operates well in low light and/or harsh conditions.
â€œOur solar cells and modules feature American quality, high power output and high efficiency,â€ said Alex Kim, CEO of Mission Solar Energy. â€œOur new line of modules feature some of the very best in solar technology and are an indication of where we are headed as a company.â€
