Mitsubishi solar increases cell efficiency
According to Mitsubishi they were able to achieve the 18.9% efficiency by allowing their new solar cells to absorb infrared rays in sunlight, thus achieving a new milestone with their photovoltaic solar technology.
The company will be integrating the higher efficient solar cells into their solar panels product line by 2010. Personally, I don’t think this is a huge gain in efficiency since they improved their technology from 18.6% to 18.9%, its a small gain but in the right direction I suppose. What do you think about Mitsubishi’s new efficiency record?
