Suniva Reaches 19% Efficiency Average For Solar Cells


Suniva Inc., a manufacturer of crystalline silicon solar cells and modules, says its ARTisun Select series solar cells are now averaging 19% efficiency in plant-wide production. The new cell efficiencies are available immediately to cell customers and are incorporated into the company's flagship Optimus modules.

In addition to the improved efficiencies, ongoing process improvements have yielded tighter cosmetic specifications, including a more narrow color band to create a more cosmetically uniform module, the company adds.

‘We feel confident our Select cells will continue to achieve increased production average efficiencies beyond 19.2 percent during 2012,’ says Bruce McPherson, vice president of research and development for Suniva.
