More powerful successor to award-winning Kyocera solar module
Kyocera solar module wins two awards in 2006
14 March 2007
Esslingen/Neuss – Evidence for the success of the Kyocera FL120-1A solar module came with the European and Swiss Solar Awards for 2006. As of now, an even more powerful frameless successor is available with the type FL130T-1A. As well as an increased output of about 10 per cent, the new model also guarantees further benefits for the energy-conscious house builder.
The cells of the Kyocera FL130T-1A module are embedded between a hardened glass covering (TÜV-tested for resistance to hailstones in accordance with IEC 61215) and an EVA foil. On the rear the modules are sealed with PET foil and promise a high-grade continually usable roof surface that is low on repairs and maintenance.
