Sunmodule PV Modules
These SolarWorld PV modules are designed for use in high-voltage grid-tie applications as well as in large industrial and off-grid applications for 24- or 48-volt battery charging.
SolarWorld California was founded in March 2005 and expanded in July 2006 with the acquisition of Shell Solar Industries’ solar manufacturing facilities that had been operating in the USA since 1977. The factory, originally opened by ARCO Solar, later sold to Siemens Solar and then Shell, was purchased by SolarWorld in 2006.
Headquartered in Camarillo, California, SolarWorld California maintains ingot production facilities in Vancouver, WA and wafer, cell and module production facilities in the Camarillo facility.
SolarWorld California modules are made in the USA ensuring high quality, performance and output. SolarWorld California is the largest manufacturer of solar modules in the U.S.
In 2007, SolarWorld acquired the Komatsu silicon wafer production facility in Hillsboro, Oregon, and is currently renovating the 480,000 square foot facility that will convert raw silicon into up to 500 MW worth of PV wafers and cells every year. The new Hillsboro facility will come on line in fall 2008.
SW 165/175 Mono Modules
These SolarWorld PV modules are designed for use in high-voltage grid-tie applications as well as in large industrial and off-grid applications for 24- or 48-volt battery charging. These modules use 72 five-inch semi-square single-crystalline cells in series behind tempered glass. They feature clear-anodized aluminum frames and a sealed junction box with bypass diodes and Multi-Contact locking connector output cables.
The Sunmodule is certified to the stringent safety and design requirements of UL1703 and IEC 61215. All US Sunmodules are currently produced in the ISO 9001:2000 certified Camarillo, California facility. SolarWorld offers end-of-life module recycling for all Sunmodules.
