Schott Solar to unveil new solar panels


Schott Solar, a leading German company that manufacturers solar panels will showcase a new 225-watt, polycrystalline photovoltaic solar panel at the Solar Power International show in San Diego, CA October 14-16th. The new solar panel will be made right here in the USA at Schott’s planned factory in New Mexico.

The company is investing $100 million to build a 200,000-square-foot plant at Mesa del Sol in south central Albuquerque that will open early next year. The facility will manufacturer both photovoltaic solar panels and concentrated solar power collectors. The proposed plant has a capacity of manufacturing 70 megawatts of solar panel per year.

The new Schott Solar panels will be marketed under the product line name of, Schott Solar Poly 225, the product line will complement the 310 watt solar panels manufactured at Schott’s factory in Billerica, MA. According to Mac Moore, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing,

“The introduction of a 225-watt module to the North American market enables us to meet the demands of an increasingly diverse marketplace,” Moore said. “A module of this size is ideal for a wide range of commercial and residential applications.”

This is very interesting, now we’re seeing panels that are in the 225 watt to 310 watt range! As the rated output of panels become larger, homes and businesses will need less panels to meet their energy production goals. Every trade show we attend, we see a higher rated output for solar panels which is a trend in the industry. Pretty soon we’ll see panels with ratings over 400 watts each!
