As part of our on-going product knowledge training we have attended the 1st SunPower Online Training module today. In this session we learnt why the unique design of the SunPower module and their use of unique Maxeon technology makes them the most powerful commercially available modules on the market today. The use of back contactors to each cell allows greater exposure of the N11 silicon to the Sun. Because the contacts are on the back this means that solid copper connectors can be used rather than traditional front printed contacts. What this means to you is that the cell and electrical connections can be more robust and less sensitive to thermal stress – giving greater reliability.

A combination of high AR glass, good low light response, no LID effect, maintaining output at elevated temperatures and higher average watts gives SunPower modules a 7-9% uplift on stated power output – meaning greater yield over the full life of the module.
