Suntech Silicon-Powered Solar Technology
Silicon is the world's most dependable solar technology. With over 40 years of demonstrated field performance, silicon modules have continued to outlast and outperform other solar technologies.
SUNTECH SILICON-BASED SOLAR OFFERINGS
Suntech offers reliable silicon solar products, including thin film, polycrystalline and monocrystalline modules, that allow customers design and application flexibility. High-performance features and superior reliability make Suntech products the best choice for your solar power system.
Excellent module efficiencies
Roofs often have limited space for solar systems. The higher the solar module’s efficiency, the better the surface efficiency of the entire system. Our solar modules offer above-average efficiencies.
Enhanced Weak Light Performance
Module output under laboratory conditions usually does not reflect actual output in real-world installations. In the field, performance under weak light conditions has a strong impact on energy yield. Our novel cell design and improved solar glass ensure that Suntech modules perform well under real world, weak light conditions.
A special layer in the high quality solar glass of the Suntech modules causes water to run off more quickly, thereby enabling the glass to clean itself of dust and dirt in a similar manner to the lotus effect. A further layer improves the reflective behaviour, allowing more sunlight to be transported into the modules and causing less light to be reflected. In this way the module is also able to produce more electricity. An ingenious combination for improved yields and consistently high system performance.
Power Optimized Current Sorting
Suntech sorts and packages modules with matching current characteristics to ensure each module string can achieve maximum power output. Current-matched modules install quickly, minimize lost power due to module mismatch, and maximize lifetime energy output.
FUTURE OF SOLAR: PERFECTING THE PRESENT
Suntech’s world-class research team develops and commercializes the latest advancements in silicon-based solar technology. Our team of more than 380 solar experts improves solar efficiency and affordability with new cell technologies, solar module designs, and encapsulation methods.
Our cutting-edge cell technology features engineering innovations developed at the leading institution for silicon solar research, University of New South Wales, in Australia. The jointly-developed PERL cell technology, now employed on all Suntech Pluto cells and HiPerforma modules, set the world record for solar conversion efficiency in 2009.
Continued research investments and collaboration with leading research institutions keep Suntech at the forefront of high-efficiency, silcon-based solar cell and module design.
