Solar Frontier is the world’s largest manufacturer of CIS (copper-indium-selenium) panels and is a subsidiary of Shell. The factory of Solar Frontier is in the south of Japan. The strong parent company, the impressive R&D and the reinsured guarantee make this a very solid product from a very solid company.
CIS belongs to the “family” of thin film products. However, the product is substantially different to amorphous Silicon (a-Si) or Cadmium Telluride (CdTe).
For thin film modules, the modules have a very high module efficiency of 12.6%. However, the most important thing is that they manage to generate a higher kWh production per m2 with a lower number of Watt Peak / m2 than crystalline modules. Solar Frontier panels therefore consistently provide surprisingly high results. Thanks to this high kWh production, Solar Frontier can often generate a lower price per kilowatt-hour despite its higher purchase costs. As a result, not only is the kWh output higher but so is the financial output.
What’s more, the modules look good, making them more suitable for an aesthetic application in architecture. Also, in contrast to other thin film technologies, they are entirely lead-free and cadmium free.
