In a recent interview with Mercom, marketing director at LONGi Solar, Wang Yingge spoke about the current trends in module prices in the global market. He said, “Module and cell prices this year have been stable. But next year, mono PERC prices are likely to come down as the manufacturing capacity has been increasing. On the other hand, the polycrystalline market can’t last for long as polycrystalline suppliers won’t be able to make money because of their costs.”
Earlier this year, LONGi joined hands with Hexagon Peak, the project development arm of Hexagon Holdings. Under the agreement, LONGi will supply 200 MW of its latest mono PERC modules. Singapore-based Hexagon Peak will use the modules for its pipeline of utility-scale solar projects that are expected to be commissioned by Q1 of 2021.
