Performance at High Temperatures

CIS delivers high yields – even in desert heat

All solar panels are affected by heat. Some technologies are just better at handling heat than others.

CIS modules have an advantage over crystalline silicon panels at higher temperatures. This advantage is especially relevant because modules operate at a higher temperature than ambient temperature. The effect of heat is measured by a module’s “temperature coefficient”, which is the rate at which power output decreases as temperature increases. Solar Frontier’s CIS modules have a lower temperature coefficient than crystalline silicon modules, resulting in lower energy production losses at high temperatures.

When every kilowatt-hour of electricity generated affects your return on investment, this can make a big difference.
