Gautam Solar launches G2X 450 Wp and 545 Wp M10 high-efficiency modules

 Gautam Solar has expanded its G2X series with the global launch of 450 Wp solar modules at RE+ held from September 19-23, 2022 in California, USA. Apart from this, the G2X 545 Wp modules which are already available in India were also introduced to the US market.

Through these modules with bigger M10 cells, homegrown solar module maker Gautam Solar is expecting to revolutionize the US solar power segment.

The modules will be available in both monofacial and bi-facial variants. The modules are PERC monocrystalline modules with high-quality monofacial / bi-facial 120(for 450 Wp)/144(for 545 Wp) half-cut cells (depending on the variant).

“Gautam Solar has established strong trust in the Indian market for being committed towards innovating and manufacturing the best-in-the-market solar modules. The new high-performance modules will further boost the transition towards replacing fossil fuel as a source of power with cleaner sources of energy. The modules will be ideal for both Rooftop and Ground Mounted Solar Power Projects, both in India & the USA. The modules will significantly benefit Solar Developers and Solar System Integrators (EPCs),” said Director of Gautam Solar Private Limited Gautam Mohanka.

Gautam Solar’s 450 Wp – M10 Modules are compact in size and weight, which makes it easier to handle particularly in rooftop solar installations. These modules save on module mounting structure costs and require two purlins to install compared to the standard four purlins for the higher-wattage M10 modules, said the company in a statement.

With dimensions of 1,923 mm x 1,134 mm x 35 mm, the Modules offer a Power per Unit Area of 206.4 W/m2 compared to 210.8 W/m2 for the 545 Wp Modules.

This small trade-off of 2% Power per Unit Area is virtually insignificant in front of the benefits it provides. The modules incorporate multi-busbar technology for reduced internal resistance losses and round ribbons for better light utilization.

On the other hand, the 545 Wp M10 modules also incorporates the same technologies of multi-busbar and round ribbons and provide a slight increase in module efficiency along with lower installation costs on account of the lesser number of panels being required for same power requirement.

These advanced modules are being manufactured at the company’s modern manufacturing facility in Haridwar of Uttrakhand which recently boosted its annual production capacity to 400 MWp with the company eyeing to further expand to 1 GWp in the near future.
