PERC solar technology has gone full circle; after first being developed at UNSW, it is now being installed on its roof to power parts of the school. JinkoSolar has been chosen for the prestigious project, at a location that means a lot to the solar industry, as it was also where Dr. Martin Green developed the modern PV cell.
Specific details of the rooftop project at the university have been scant, however, Jinko has announced that it will be installing its Eagle PERC modules for the array, while Autonomous Energy is taking over EPC duties on the project. But technical details are less important for this, largely symbolic project, in the eyes of veteran solar onlookers.
This is because UNSW has a special place in the heart of the solar industry, as one of the leading solar cell research and development centers worldwide. Notable, the “father of the modern solar cell,” Dr. Martin Green, developed the technology at UNSW, where later on PERC technology itself was developers.
“As a in PV industry, we are proud to be at the forefront of technology by producing highly-efficient products that meet market demand,” commented JinkoSolar’s CEO, Kangping Chen. “”The selection by UNSW of our PERC products for its first roof top installation demonstrates the quality and reliability of our PERC technology. We are committed to consistently delivering the highest quality, most reliable, high-efficiency solar products.”
