SolarCity’s panel was measured with 22.04 percent module-level efficiency by the Renewable Energy Test Center . The silicon-based bifacial PV cell combines n-type substrates, copper electrodes, thin-film passivation layers, and a tunneling oxide layer that yields high conversion efficiencies. SolarCity claims that its module will be "the highest-volume solar panel manufactured in the Western Hemisphere." Production will begin this month at the firm's 100-megawatt pilot facility, but most of the new solar panels will be produced at SolarCity’s 1-gigawatt factory in upstate New York.
