new quality standard for solar modules

The new Sunmodule Protect series is the latest addition to the SolarWorld AG range. It has set new benchmarks when it comes to service life, mechanical durability, degradation behavior and its groundbreaking performance guarantee.

Sandwiched between glass on both front and back, solar cells are optimally protected against environmental factors such as water intrusion. Cells also are less susceptible to shear stress, thereby reducing cell breakage. Even with a second pane of glass, Sunmodule Protect solar panels remain lightweight, at about 21 kilogram – the same as the Sunmodule Plus glass-film panels. They include the same sturdy aluminum frame and reliable junction box with MC4-connectors. Therefore, the new product will work with all mounting systems approved for use with the Sunmodule Plus product line.
