Washington — Silfab Solar announced the launch of Silfab Elite, a line of back-contact modules.
Silfab says the Elite line – SIL 370-380 BK – has an efficiency rating of up to 21.4 percent and the company has secured distribution partners for the new line of products.
“Silfab continues to engineer products specifically designed for the North American homeowner – manufactured locally for superior quality, the highest durability and now the most powerful module available,” said Paolo Maccario, Silfab President and CEO. “The Elite line is gorgeous – it provides homeowners with a very appealing look, a smaller footprint and peace of mind quality from 35+ years of solar manufacturing experience.
The Silfab Elite series is an integration of Silfab’s latest technology, its decades of global engineering expertise, and precision manufacturing processes – using the highest-quality materials and strict quality control measures.
The panel operates at lower temperatures in concert with superior low-light performance, which together increase energy yield by as much as 6% on a kWh/kWp basis.
The advanced back-contact technology reduces front cell metallization, minimizing shading losses, while simultaneously alleviating locked-in mechanical stress in the electrical contacts, resulting in improved performance, better long-term reliability, and higher efficiency.
