Convention panels have metal contacts on the front and back which pick up electrons as they are released from the cell. These metal contacts are as thin as possible, otherwise they would cover too much of the cell and block the suns’ photons. SunPower panels are different, they only need to pick up electrons on the back of the panel. This means metal contacts on the front of the panel aren’t required, which maximises the surface area of the cell that gets hit by the sun. Furthermore, SunPower has a solid copper backing on the back of the cell, which is vastly superior to the metal contacts in standard panels. More light absorption, stronger foundation and thicker connectors – a fundamentally better cell.
SunPower panels are the ultimate panels for those seeking only the best for their roof. If this is you, ask your consultant about SunPower today.
