(NYSE: STP), the world's largest producer of solar panels, ramps-up module efficiency. At Ecobuild 2012 Suntech presents the first of a whole series of modules with improved efficiency. Suntech's monocrystalline solar modules STP200S and STP195S - 24/Ad+, which are ideal for the UK residential market, now offer an improved efficiency of 15.7 percent and show how solar power is still a profitable investment even if feed-in tariffs are being shortened. "Despite the expected feed-in tariff cuts the UK government still adheres to the plan of installing an additional 22GW of solar power until 2020," said Vedat Gürgeli, Vice President Sales and Marketing for Europe. "Even more reason for the industry to work on improved efficiency to make sure solar energy continues to be an attractive energy resource - not only to support the environment but also as a solid investment. Suntech utilised improved production processes and advanced materials to ram-up module efficiency. With an expected IRR of 8 percent solar is still one of the most attractive investments for home owners." Suntech's monocyrystalline STP200S and STP195S - 24/Ad+ modules are an ideal choice for the residential sector due to their compact form factor of 62.2 x 31.8 x 1.4 inches (1580 x 808 x 35 mm).
