SolarWorld has announced its new Sunmodule Protect “glass-glass” solar panel, a technological advancement that allows the 35 year old company to provide a 30-year linear performance guarantee on the panels.
SolarWorld were the first to introduce the 25-year step guarantee in 1997 and the first 25-year linear performance guarantee in 2009. In the later part of this year, they will offer the first glass-glass solar panel coupled with an industry-leading performance guarantee.
The new solar panel is no heavier than a standard glass-film panel, replacing the standard backsheet with lightweight glass to better shield energy-producing solar cells from the environment. It is this advancement which has allowed SolarWorld to extend its linear performance guarantee to 30 years. The guarantee offers 90% of their original performance after 21 years and guaranteed to provide 86.85% of their original performance after 30 years of operation.
We feel this is going to be a great new product offered by SolarWorld, The team at Andrew Davy Electrical can offer you even more peace of mind for your investment with such a high quality module.
