September 21, 2015 – SolarWorld, a crystalline silicon solar manufacturer, showcased its high-power, 72-cell bifacial solar panel at the solar-industry trade show Solar Power International this month.  

Photoelectric surfaces on both sides of the new Sunmodule XL bifacial solar panel’s solar cells—protected by a layer of glass on one side and a clear back sheet on the other—will provide as much as 25% more power than conventional 72-cell modules, depending on installation conditions, according to SolarWorld. As an example, a SolarWorld 330-watt panel will produce energy equivalent to that of a conventional panel of up to about 410 watts, the company added.  

The new solar panel features a high-wattage, mono-PERC (passivated emitter rear contact) solar cell technology.

The first 72-cell bifacial modules will be available in the first half of 2016.
