Suntech’s pluto tech breaks multicrystalline record
Recently the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE in Germany verified that the Chinese Solar Manufacturer, Suntech broke a world record for commerical grade multicrystalline solar cells. Suntech’s Pluto technology clocked in at an efficiency of 15.6% in laboratory conditions. The previous record for commerical grade multicrystalline solar cells was set 15 years ago by Sandia National Labs.
According to Suntech, the Pluto technology is the primary driver behind the solar cell’s great performance and can be applied to both mono and polycrystalline solar cells. The company has already began shipping solar panels that feature Pluto technology as more solar panel manufacturers compete to have the most highly efficient solar panel on the market.
What do you think about Suntech solar panels? Do you think Pluto technology will perform highly in real world conditions?
