SolFocus CPV Modules First to Meet Key Industry Standard
The module consists of glass reflectors mounted on a two-axis tracking system that focus sunlight on multi-junction photovoltaic cells. Satisfying the IEC 62108 standard indicates that the module does not suffer undue power degradation, has adequate electrical insulation and ground-path continuity, and is able to withstand the elements and mechanical loads such as snow, ice, and wind. SolFocus expects that buyers, investors, and developers will see meeting the standard as a sign that its CPV technology is reliable and ready for larger-scale use.
