About CIS Module

The modules are available with power outputs of 180 Watts up to 185 Watts. All Solar Frontier modules are produced in Japan, based on a legacy of over 40 years experience in the PV industry. Furthermore, our parent company, Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K., has over 100 years of history in the energy business which gives our customers peace of mind. Real-world data and independent tests confirm that our CIS thin-film modules provide more kilowatt hours per kilowatt peak, resulting in a shorter pay back period for systems using our modules.

Performance at Low Irradiance

Efficiency reduction of maximum power from an irradiance of 1,000 W/m2 to 200 W/m2 at 25 °C (77°F) is typically 2.0%. The standard deviation for the reduction of efficiency is 1.9%.
