The photovoltaic market offers a wide range of solar modules based on very diverse technologies.

The modules fall into the main categories of:

  • Thin-film modules, especially CIS and cadmium-telluride
  • Crystalline modules based on silicon
  • Organic modules (not yet on the market)
  • HIT and tandem solar cells

One of them is the solution offered by CIS technology. A decisive advantage of Solar Frontier’s CIS PowerModules over conventional crystalline silicon resides in the higher output per installed watt-peak – resulting in a larger energy production of the installation. Their advantage over other thin-film modules (such as amorphous, micromorphous or tandem modules) lies in their higher efficiency.

Aside from CIS, organic modules also hold great potential; but this technology is currently years away from serial production and therefore hardly available as a standard product.

What sets CIS apart not only from crystalline modules but also from other thin-film technologies such as cadmium-telluride is their outstanding environmental friendliness: CIS modules by Solar Frontier are free of cadmium and lead, requiring no special recycling process. Therefore, they meet the stringent requirements of the RoHS guideline (Restriction of Hazardous Substances).

The characteristics of Solar Frontier’s proprietary CIS technology offer higher yields compared to other technologies, aesthetic look and the highest degree of ecology, thanks to the compound and production. In addition, thanks to the company’s structure and focus, Solar Frontier PowerModules offer security of the investment for all customers and partners – a security that is both linked to a strong partner as well as to a high quality product.
