Kyocera KD235GX-LPB Solar Panels

KYOCERA's Advanced Cell Processing

This technology and automated production facilities have produced a multi-crystalline solar cell with an efficiency of over 16%. All modules are constructed using a tempered glass front, EVA pottant and a PVF backing to provide maximum protection from the severest environmental conditions.The entire laminate is framed in a
heavy duty anodized aluminum frame to provide structural strength and ease of installation. Because KYOCERA modules are so efficient, less space is required than other solar modules of equal output.This translates to both more wattage per square foot and lower mounting structure cost.

KYOCERA has perfected its new surface treatment technology and is introducing it on a new line of modules named d.Blue, for its dark blue color.

The newly developed treatment method processes multi-crystalline silicon cells in order to produce a surface texture that minimizes surface reflectance and maximizes output.The result is a maximum conversion efficiency of 16%, one of the highest conversion efficiencies in the polycrystalline module industry.
d.Blue is ideal for installation in all types of systems, from residential grid-tie to SCADA and large
scale commercial systems.

D.Blue modules are available in the entire Kyocera line.
