Juwi and Pellucere Start Cooperation for Optimization of PV Portfolio
Houston, USA / Wörrstadt, Germany - Over time, solar modules lose part of their performance due to degradation. Retrofitting anti-reflective coatings can compensate for these performance losses. This has been demonstrated by experiences with the MoreSun system from Pellucere, which Juwi Operations & Maintenance GmbH (Juwi O&M) will be retrofitting in the future as part of a long-term cooperation agreement.
MoreSun was designed by Pellucere Technologies for retrofit on-site coating in large solar parks where older PV modules without factory installed anti-reflective coating were installed. The MoreSun coating reduces reflective losses on PV modules and increases the energy yield of solar systems between 3.5 and over 4.2 percent. The Talus Dirt Rejection Technology DRT antipollution technology, which is always integrated into MoreSun, reduces module soiling by up to 90 percent and thus additionally increases the energy production from the solar system, Juwi said about the system.
Juwi anticipates, that the investment of plant owners in the MoreSun coating will be paid back in as little as 2-3 years. “Pellucere’s Guaranteed Payback Performance Warranty removes any risk for clients,” Grinsch added. As Juwi point out, all installations of MoreSun are backed by Pellucere’s “Zero-Risk Performance Warranty” which guarantees that clients will generate additional revenue of at least 100% of the installed cost within the warranty period.
