Schott Solar Presents High Efficiency Solar Module

Schott SolarSchott Solar PV Inc of Albuquerque, New Mexico, have recently launched a high efficiency Mono module on to the solar PV market. The company is a leading US manufacturer of solar PV equipment, although a subsidiary of German company Schott AG whose company headquarters are in Mainz. Nevertheless, the new Schott Perform Mono module is produced in Albuquerque and uses top quality materials supported by the company's 54 years of experience in solar technology. It is therefore covered by the Buy American Act as a US-made end product and comes with a ten year product warranty and a 25 year linear power warranty with a 5 watt positive output tolerance which will help it to deliver maximum performance.

Schott is a company that is known especially for its involvement in the Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) sector. Among the products it manufactures are receivers for parabolic trough concentrating solar thermal plants. It has manufacturing plants in several countries in Europe and Asia as well as the US and maintains a local presence in all the world's major solar energy markets. The Schott group employs 17,000 people and generated global sales of 2.9 billion euros during the fiscal year 2010/11. The company recently received an order for 12 MW worth of solar PV, consisting specifically of Perform Poly 240 modules, from Green Tops of Israel, one of the company's key partners in the Mediterranean. Green Tops are however interested in ordering high performance Mono modules and have already put in an order for the new Schott Perform Mono.

Schott modules are environmentally tested to twice the international certification standards for thermal cycling as well as a damp heat test to ensure product quality. Tom Hecht, President of SCHOTT Solar PV, Inc said recently: "This is a critical addition to our portfolio as it adds a higher efficiency option and enables higher power density on projects where it is necessary. We specifically designed the Schott Perform Mono PV module to exceed current industry standards. Our customers trust in Schott modules because they are backed by 25 years of rigorous field testing yielding more accurate performance data."

The modules will initially be available in the 245 to 255 watt power range.
