Canadian Solar Sets New Solar Cell Efficiency Record: Filed under: Energy News

“Canadian Solar’s ELPS cells feature a Metal Wrap Through (MWT) design, which moves the front busbars to the back of the cells allowing 3% more light absorption per cell. As a result, ELPS modules deliver up to 7% more electricity than similar configuration conventional solar modules. The ELPS module is nominated for the Intersolar Award 2012 in photovoltaics category.”
