Maxeon Solar Technologies will supply up to 400 MW of its high-efficiency bifacial Performance 5 UPP solar panels for the construction of the Danish Fields Solar power plant project located near Houston, Texas.

Maxeon’s 21% efficiency Performance 5 UPP solar panels use a a proprietary shingled design to improve efficiency and durability to reduce system life energy cost. The design compensates for real-world conditions such as partial shading and elevated temperatures.

“We commend TotalEnergies for using our high-performance modules to ensure long-term value and low carbon power for homes and business in Texas,” said Jeff Waters, CEO of Maxeon Solar Technologies. “We see big opportunities in the power plant market in the United States and elsewhere and believe Maxeon is uniquely positioned to provide owners and operators with maximized energy production and reliable, long-term return on investment.”

Maxeon anticipates its next-generation Performance line modules to be available in 2022 and will be delivered in late 2022 through Q3 2023.

Performance line will use the production of large-format G12 mono-PERC solar cells by Maxeon in Malaysia, with module assembly in Maxeon’s facility in Mexicali, Mexico.
