Shadow Tolerance

Even under partial shading from neighboring objects, CIS performs.

Think about shading caused by nearby objects such as trees, buildings and neighboring arrays. Under such conditions, crystalline silicon modules would quickly stop working. If only the shorter side of a CIS module is covered by shading, however, the uncovered part will continue to produce electricity normally.

As a result, project designers can even choose to move arrays closer together - even if this causes partial shading to neighboring arrays. By doing this, higher power density can be achieved in limited spaces.
