LONGi showcases the new Hi-MO 6 module to the South Africa DG market

The solar technology manufacturer hosted over 80 delegates at two glitzy events dubbed the LONGi Partners Gala Dinner and Cocktail in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

As South Africa’s distributed generation market expands rapidly, world-leading solar technology manufacturer LONGi is looking to position itself as a key player and a partner for the South African distributed generation industry. The company unveiled its new Hi-MO 6 module – specifically designed for the distributed generation market, on the 30th of March 2023 at the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town South Africa.

At a glitzy event dubbed the LONGi Partners Gala Dinner and Cocktail, the solar technology manufacturer hosted over 80 delegates in Cape Town. This event was subsequent to a similar event of the same name hosted by LONGi in Johannesburg, on the 24th of March 2023. 

The attendees at the two events got the opportunity to view the new Hi-MO 6 module, and were treated to a fine dining and cocktail experience.

The Hi-MO 6 uses LONGi’s high-efficiency HPBC cell technology, and achieves a new feat in the industry with maximum efficiency of 22.8%. The solar technology manufacturer debuted the panel in the South Africa market as the “answer” for businesses and residents in South Africa bearing the brunt of current electricity supply challenges and load shedding.

In an address at the event, Ryan Wang, the LONGi General Manager for Africa affirmed that LONGi is committed to helping South Africa solve its energy challenges with its technology.

“LONGi strives to create innovative solutions to help consumers meet their energy demands, so that more families, business owners, and entrepreneurs who are concerned about the fate of mankind and want to create a green future can be involved in this energy revolution,” says Ryan Wang, LONGi General Manager for Africa.

With load shedding intensifying in South Africa, many businesses and residents are now looking to supply themselves with power through mechanisms like rooftop solar systems to supplement the shortfall of supply. 

At the Johannesburg event, one of the main speakers at the event was Chanda Nxumalo, the Chairperson of the South African Photovoltaic Industry Association (SAPVIA) and Executive Director at Harmattan Renewables.
