Warranty

  • Standard 25 year warranty on manufacturer defects and a 25 year power output warranty

Features

  • Higher Efficiency

    • The panel design minimizes white space between solar cells, eliminates reflective metal lines on the cells, and lowers electrical resistance between cells, increasing efficiency compared to conventional commercial modules.

  • Increase Energy Production

    • Linear shading response can generate more energy than conventional mono-crystalline modules.

  • More durable / Reliable

    • Durability tested for mechanical load; Dynamic + Thermal Cycle + Humidity Freeze
    • Harsh evironments; salt mist, amonia, dust and sand.

  • Tests and Certificates

    • IEC 61215, IEC 61730 Class C according to UL790
    • IEC 61701 (maximum severity) Salt Spray Test
    • IEC62716 Ammonia Test
    • MIL-STD-810G Desert Test
    • LeTID Test IEC 61215 (MQT 23.1 LeTID detection)
    • Potential-induced degradation free: 1500V
    • Listings: TUV Rheinland, CE
    • ISO 9001:2008: ISO Quality Management System

Standard Equipment

  • Power assurance program for linear power output.
    • Produces more than 97.5% power in the first year and after 25 years 85.5%.
  • Durability Test Cycle (accelerated tests)
    • 2000 hrs damp heat testing is twice the standard testing hrs. required
    • 600 thermal cycling testing is three times the standard cycles required.
    • 192 hrs of PID (potential-induced degradation) at 85°C/85RH) is twice the standard testing hrs. required.
    • Mechanical Load testing for Dynamic + Thermal Cycle + Humidity Freeze result in much less cell breakage and power loss than static testing alone.
    • 60-100 kWh/m2 LID (light-induced- degradation) validates early hour performance.
    • LeTID (light and elevated temperature degradation) is a proprietary validation for long term PERC performance.
    • Validated for use in harsh environment by IEC testing for salt mist, amonia, dust and sand.
