7 SOLARBUILDERMAG.COM | 41 CertainTeed CertainTeed says it expects to launch half-cut cells in Q2 2019. The new module will consist of standard PERC mono cells, cut in half, connected in series and parallel to achieve similar voltage and current characteristics as standard 60-cell modules at the module level. Warranty: 25-year linear power output, and a 25-year work- manship warranty when installed by certified contractors. Rated power 310 W Cell type p-type monocrystalline Cell efficiency 21.6% Module efficiency 18.65% Short-circuit current 9.760 Open circuit voltage 40.12 Rated current 9.345 Rated voltage 33.17 Temperature coefficient -0.37% (Pmax) Quantity per pallet 26 Mission Solar To pack as much power as possible in order to dramatically reduce energy costs, Mission Solar developed the MSE PERC 60 module. The MSE PERC 60 features a compact 60-cell design that is smaller while packing 310 W of power. This module is best suited for residential and commercial projects. Warranty: 25-year perfor- mance and 12-year workmanship.
