Trina Solar TSM DEG15VC.20 is a PV module fit for both residential and commercial applications. Trina Solar engineers made the DuoMax series durable and efficient while minimizing the amount of useful space required for their operation. The Passivated Emitter Rear Contact (PERC) technology ensures excellent power output. This solar cell type employs an additional reflective layer to absorb more sunlight.
Another advantage is the half-cut cell technology. TSM DEG15VC.20 has solar cells half the size of those installed in conventional panels. The main benefits are decreased power loss, improved longevity and better low-light performance. The efficiency of this model reaches 20.2% — well above the market’s average. And while conventional panels use only one side to absorb photons, bifacial modules employ both sides at the same time. Thanks to the technology, this model can be up to 30% more efficient. Trina Solar paid as much attention to durability as they did to performance. TSM DEG15VC.20 is guaranteed to retain at least 86.4% of output after 30 years. Product warranty for this panel lasts 12 years.

Higher efficiency of up to 20.2%
TSM DEG15VC.20 guarantees the highest power output. PERC technology and potent anti reflective coating result in 20.2% module efficiency. This is significantly higher than average, which will result in substantial extra savings over the years of operation.
Better performance at high temperatures
Excellent temperature coefficient means more energy as temperature rises. Every 1.8°F hike above 77°F will decrease your panel’s efficiency by only 0.34%.
Quality and reliability
TSM DEG15VC.20 receives multiple quality checks throughout the manufacturing process and is subject to stringent quality and reliability testing. The manufacturing facilities are highly automated, eliminating the risk of human error. Trina Solar is dedicated to quality, safety and reliability to ensure you get the very best.
Low degradation for increased lifespan
The amount of power output loss experienced by these panels during the first year of operation will not exceed 2%. The average yearly power drop from the second to the 30th year will not surpass 0.40%. After 30 years, the module will still produce more than 86.4% of its initial output.
A panel that can handle hail, wind and snow
This module is weatherproof due to the 1.38" frame manufactured from anodized aluminum and a layer of safety tempered glass. The modules' front and rear sides can withstand loads of 5400 and 2400 Pa, respectively.
