At the forum, LONGi Solar made a commitment that the company would spare no effort to boost the Japanese market into the era of high efficiency 300W+ monocrystalline modules, and promote efficient, highly reliable and high-yield monocrystalline solutions to Japan.
Furthermore, backed by the parent company’s strong R&D strength, LONGi Solar has continuously created records in the efficiency of PERC monocrystalline cells and modules, and will have more efficient and reliable products realizing large-scale application in the Japanese market in the future. Japan market is the first stop of the global tour of LONGi Solar’s efficient monocrystalline modules, and the next stops include the United States, India, Europe and Australia.
Although Japan has continuously lowered the PV FiT, with weaker market demand, it’s still the world’s third largest PV market, with a growing number of medium and large-scale power station projects. Due to the high costs of land, among other things, the lowering of FiT makes investors focus more on system cost and LCOE, and efficient monocrystalline modules can help Japanese customers achieve better LCOE.
