JA Solar Panels
390 watt MBB Half-Cell Module
JA Solar has a number of panel brands. We have chosen the highest performance panel in their product range to offer to our residential and commercial customers.
This 390-watt panel has an average efficiency rating of 19.5% to 20.9%, almost 1% higher than other mid-range solar panels.
You will notice that it is called a ‘Half-Cell Module’. This means that the solar cells are literally cut in half, which improves the module’s performance and durability. The benefit of ‘half-cell’ design is to reduce the impact of shading. If the bottom half is shaded, the top half continues to work. Standard panels do not have this functionality so when part of a panel is shaded, the entire panel will stop working – as will all the other panels on the same array (assuming you have a string inverter).
Clearly, half-cell module technology is the next step forward in clever solar panel design. In fact industry experts (1) predict the market share of half cells will grow from around 5% to nearly 40% in 2028. That’s why we have selected this outstanding panel from JA Solar which helps overcome the common problem of partial shading – and provides high power output at an affordable price.
With JA Solar you also get peace of mind that your panels will generate high levels of power over the warrantied lifetime. As well as having a solid 12-year product warranty, these panels also have 25-year linear performance warranty.
The linear performance warranty means that the performance of the 390 watt MBB Half-Cell Modules are warrantied for 84.8% of their original power output, compared to an industry average of 83.1%. This is a very strong performance warranty in the industry and a great reason to choose JA Solar.
