China-based solar module manufacturer ReneSola has debuted two new products: the Virtus II solar module and Micro Replus, a micro-inverter.

The Virtus cell technology incorporated into the new Virtus II module features improvements in the silicon cast and handling processes which, while similar to the poly crystalline manufacturing process, result in a more homogenous crystalline structure than is possible with polycrystalline modules, according to Virtus.

Cell efficiencies have reached 17.6%, ReneSola adds.

The Micro Replus micro-inverters, which are ETL-certified, are available as either standalone or integrated with a ReneSola panel for a turnkey AC module. The inverters also come complete with monitoring software, communications gateway hardware and cables equipped with MC4-compatible connectors.
