  • With previously signed orders and delivery cycle taken into consideration, the original average price column for foreign mono-Si PERC modules will lag amid faster price fluctuations. Owing to the expansion of price difference between spot prices and the prices previous long-term orders were signed at, mono-Si PERC module "spot price ” column is added since this month to differentiate from the previous foreign spot price and long-term order price column. You may refer to the "high price” column for the spot prices of different size variants.
  • Module power output will be revised, as the market sees efficiency rise. Power outputs of 166mm, 182mm, and 210mm modules sit at 365-375/440-450 W, 535-545 W, and 540-550 W, respectively.
  • In response to price movements, spot prices for 365-375 / 440-450W modules overseas are cancelled from January 2022.
  • From March 16 onward, average prices for modules in China are based on delivery prices of the week. The figure is derived from the weighted average delivery price of distributed, utility-scale, and tender projects. Low prices are based on delivery prices of Tier-2 module makers or prices where orders were signed previously.
