bSolar says it has released its bifacial crystalline silicon solar cells and modules to the U.S. market.

Bifacial cells collect sunlight by both front and rear surfaces, generating additional electricity from direct sunlight entering the module's rear side, as well as from direct and diffuse light reflected from the ground.

By utilizing both sides of the module, bifacial cells and modules generate significantly more power per installed area, compared to monofacial standard modules, resulting in a 10% to 30% higher energy yield in standard applications and up to 50% higher energy yield in vertical installations, according to bSolar.

The new modules, manufactured in Germany, are eligible for tax rebates for roof coating at both the state and federal level.
