First Solar & XSOL Ink Supply Agreement in Japan #greenbuilding

First Solar technology generates up to 8 percent more energy than conventional crystalline silicon modules, and a superior temperature coefficient results in greater energy yield in warmer climates. First Solar modules have also been independently tested to pass accelerated life and stress tests beyond industry standards, indicating best-in-class long-term performance and durability in the harshest operating conditions. By combining higher energy yields and industry-leading reliability, First Solar’s advanced thin film solar modules maximize value and minimize risk for customers.
