In line with recent developments (e.g., Trina Solar's 500 W bifacial modules), JA Solar announced a new photovoltaic (PV) module rated at 525 W under standard test conditions. The Chinese manufacturer did not confirm if the module's output power was verified by a third party and did not disclose any technical specifications, such as conversion efficiency or number of cells. Judging from ongoing trends across the solar industry, it is likely that this module relies on monocrystalline silicon and features a larger active area per solar cell, which can be achieved by increasing wafer size beyond 156.75 mm or reducing the number of busbars. Clients should follow up for more details and expect 500 W+ modules to become increasingly common.
