Suntrix presents new rooftop system
After completing a 200kw HCPV plant in Qingdao in January of this year, Suntrix presented its new rooftop system last month in Shanghai to promote rooftop CPV. Jason Liao, the operation vice president, said that usually CPV products are applied to the ground because they need tracking systems, with rooftop applications rarely considered. However, with the onset of the Chinese government's Golden Sun Project, which is pushing mass-application of PV products on factory roofs in industrial districts and making use of electricity generated by PV products locally. This action will promote development speed of PV in China. It is estimated that about 30% of office buildings and factory roofs are suitable for roof-top PV products. That will be a market of hundreds of MW a year. It is no doubt that the rooftop product developed by Suntrix will have very good application in the future.
