The Renewable Energy Test Center (RETC) recently released its 2022 PV Module Index (PVMI) Report, in which LONGi won the RETC High Achiever Award for its outstanding module performance for the fourth consecutive year. With 10 additional awards received within the same report LONGi ranked first among al PV module manufacturers, demonstrating once more the industry-leading performance and high reliability of its Hi-MO 5 modules.
10 outstanding test results, making LONGi a frequent record-breaker
The Renewable Energy Test Center (RETC) is a leading independent engineering and certification testing laboratory for photovoltaic and renewable energy products that offers professional engineering services as well as certification testing for renewable energy. As an authoritative testing agency, based in the US, the RETC publishes its annual PV Module Index (PVMI) Report that evaluates modules considering three main indicators: Performance, Reliability and Quality.
RETC runs a series of degradation tests for single components that are stricter than the IEC standards. Through statistical analysis, the report ranks modules based on different performance indicators, such as LID, LETID, module efficiency, measured power, and electricity generation capacity.
Tests like damp heat (DH2000), thermal cycling (TC600), dynamic mechanical load (DML), and potential induced degradation (PID192h) are performed to measure reliability of components, whilst quality assessments are based on the combined results of the individual tightened tests and the newly added large-diameter (45mm) hail tests, where LONGi modules achieved an degradation rate below 1%.
