Yingli Introduces CleanARC(R) Coated Solar Panels for Tough Climates and Harsh Conditions
Jan 19 15
Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited announced at the World Future Energy Summit that innovative CleanARC® anti-reflective (AR) glass coating is now available on all Yingli product lines. Developed by California-based Enki Technology and offered through Yingli, CleanARC® coating enables panels to generate more energy over time while simultaneously reducing cleaning requirements, creating additional project value in comparison to conventionally coated panels. Due to their high resistance to abrasion and environmental degradation, Yingli's CleanARC® coated solar panels are ideal for project sites with harsh environmental conditions such as sandstorms, sea mist, high humidity, and extreme temperature fluctuations. CleanARC® coated solar panels can also reduce operations and maintenance expenses because the coating's structure and hydrophobic properties enable more effective self-cleaning than conventional AR coatings.
