Sunpreme launches Innovative and Powerful GxB380 Bifacial Smart Panels with Integrated Optimizer — Enhancing Reach to New Customer Segments and Global Markets

Designed for all three segments – Residential, Commercial and Carports

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Sunpreme, a global solar photovoltaic growth company that designs, develops and manufactures its proprietary panels based on its Hybrid Cell Technology (HCT) platform — is launching the Maxima GxB380 SM, 380W, the most advanced high efficiency bifacial panels with integrated industry-leading TIGO Optimizer.

Sunpreme Smart GxB380 SM, 72 Cell Panels offer customers with advanced functionality that maximizes energy yield and peak string level AC/DC using impedance matching technology. The GxB380 SM offer customers increased flexibility, as panels with optimizers can be easily installed with complex rooftops or shading from trees, chimneys and other obstructions. Power generated by the rooftop solar system is optimized at the individual solar panel level, delivering a greater overall energy yield, and is easily and accurately monitored in real time to ensure maximum power is being produced. The panel components work together to communicate wirelessly through the gateway, while meeting the new NEC 690.12 Rapid Shutdown Safety standards. The panels are double glass for durability and aesthetics, and come with -0.28%/C thermal coefficient and fire class rated A.

Polar Solar offers customers with high quality system design and installation for both residential and commercial rooftop customers. “Our customers choose us because they trust that we will provide them with advanced technology and a highly reliable product backed by personalized customer service and warranty. GxB380 SM panels provide increased power harvest and reliability, design flexibility to reduce install complexity, and panel level shutdown. The partnership allows us to bring industry leading smart panels with higher energy output performance that previously wouldn’t have had access to our customers,” said Vernon Stratton, CEO of Polar Solar. “We are excited to work with Sunpreme — their customer-driven culture of technical excellence and high quality products. A perfect fit for our business model,” added Stratton.

“We are privileged to partner with Polar Solar and making Sunpreme GxB380 SM available their strong customer base. Sunpreme’s innovative GxB380 SM Smart Bifacial are an industry game-changer offering customers the highest performance bifacial solar panels — with impedance matching technology, improved reliability and durability, and shade tolerance and longer strings at the system level. Our carefully designed GxB380 SM panels offers a complete and compelling LCOE and its lifetime yield, and with peak string level AC/DC ratio of 0.95+, fire class rating A and panel level rapid shutdown — it broadens our reach further into residential, commercial and carports,” said Surinder S. Bedi, Executive Vice President for Global Quality & Reliability, System Products and Market Development of Sunpreme. “Historically, Sunpreme offered the most reliable modules — that were tested and certified to withstand challenging environmental solutions, including extreme temperatures, snow load, wind, sand, salt mist, humidity, and coupled with one of the best power warranties in the industry. Pre-launch customer momentum has been very positive, and we are shipping pre-booked orders to strategic customers,” added Bedi.
