Sharp Introduces 585W Bifacial Rectangular N-Type TOPCon Glass/Glass Solar Panel

Sharp Energy Solutions Europe launches its newest Bifacial TOPCon Solar Panel with a wattage upgrade to 585 Watt. The NB-JD585 is a Glass/Glass solar panel equipped with rectangular N-type 144 M10R (182.2mm*183.75mm) half-cells with 16 busbars. Rectangular cells feature different cell dimensions, which result in improved performance.

The N-Type TOPCon module features a bifacial ratio of up to 80% and a module efficiency reaching 22.65%, allowing it to deliver enhanced performance. In addition, the solar panel benefits from N-Type TOPCon technology, which means increased power and efficiency, improved low-light performance, and elevated bifaciality. The enhanced low-light performance ensures that the panel continues to produce energy even in sub-optimal lighting conditions, thus increasing its overall efficiency.

The N-Type TOPCon Glass/Glass Bifacial Solar Panel is designed with a low temperature coefficient of -0.30%/°C for power output, ensuring outstanding performance even in elevated ambient temperatures. This feature becomes particularly crucial in the context of climate change and the accompanying rise in temperatures. In addition, the panel is LID-free, which mitigates the risk of power loss throughout its lifespan.

The NB-JD585 measures 2278 x 1134 mm and features a 30 mm aluminium frame. Both the front and back glass layers are 2 mm thick, adding up to a total panel weight of 32.5 kg. The panel's mechanical specifications make it well-suited for a range of applications, including commercial and utility-scale free-field installations.

The safety, quality, and durability of the panel have been officially recognised and IEC seals have been awarded (IEC61215 and IEC61730). Rigorous testing in accordance with international standards has confirmed their resilience under challenging conditions. The module has successfully passed tests for resistance to ammonia, salt mist, sand, and potential-induced degradation (PID).

The module is covered by a 30-year linear guarantee on the nominal power output. Within the EU and several other countries, a 15-year product guarantee applies when installed in free-field systems and this is upgraded to 25 years for rooftop mounted modules. This guarantee commences on delivery of the panel to the final customer.

Andrew Lee, Vice President Commerical Operations at Sharp Energy Solutions Europe, stated: "We are pleased to announce the release of our enhanced 585W Glass/Glass N-Type TOPCon Bifacial Solar Panel. By using advanced Rectangular N-Type TOPCon cells and a resulting wattage upgrade in the NB-JD585, we're taking significant steps towards delivering greater value to our customers."
