How do CPV systems perform better than Silicon based PV?
SolFocus CPV systems do not use traditional silicon cells, but instead use high-efficiency cells, often referred to as multi-junction cells. As a result, SolFocus CPV systems are provide modules with over 50% higher efficiency levels than traditional systems. Also, these CPV systems do not degrade at higher temperatures as do silicon-based systems which can suffer 20% or more hit on efficiency at high temperature. CPV systems also track the sun throughout the day which correlates to more energy production which is an excellent match to peak demand load. Lastly, the higher efficiency and tracking combine to provide a much better land use than with other solar solutions.
