Schott Solar Cells achieve new efficiency records

September 1, 2011 § 2 Comments

The team at Schott Solar have been all fired up about their monocrystalline screen-printed solar cells; and they have reason to be excited with a cell power of 4.92 W.

In 2010 Schott Solar made waves with the world record for a module efficiency of 17.6 percent with their multicrystalline cell concepts.  With more than three years of development and research under their belts they were able to apply their expertise to monocrystalline.

SCHOTT Solar Poly 230W, 235W, 240W

Schott - 230W, 235W, 240W

Utilizing selective emitter technology and passivated rear side contact (PERC) they were able to achieve a cell that is now the world’s first 156 mm x 156 mm screen-printed solar cell with 20.2 percent efficiency. (Laboratory results in conjunction with The Schmid Group from Freudenstadt, Germany)

Schott Solar reports they are energized by these findings and are working on optimizing the manufacturing process for development of highly efficient modules. To follow the progress of Schott Solar’s new cell technology they will be sharing information at The 26th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC).

20.7kW Ground-Mount Installation – Blairsvillle, Georgia

May 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

Here are some new pictures of a ground-mount installation from Georgia! The whole system was built with SES 21 USA supplied material.

Solar System components:

When Jim came by from Georgia to meet everybody at SES 21 USA, he expressed how smoothly the whole installation went. We were delighted when Jim mentioned that he could have bought locally in Georgia, but our service and engineering advice convinced him to go with SES 21 USA. Jim, we definitely appreciate this compliment and hope you will enjoy many sunny days and free electricity from the sun!
Way to go for Georgia and thank you Jim for sharing those pictures of your installation!

Solar Fest San Antonio

This weekend, we went down to San Antonio to exhibit at this year’s Solar Fest.

SolarFest San Antonio - SES 21 USA booth

Solar Fest San Antonio! a 100% renewable energy powered event

The show was premier for our 16 foot demo roof. Displaying a complete Schletter mounting system and Schott Solar as well as Bosch Solar Energy modules, the demo-roof offers a great way to see and touch components of a solar PV installation. Visitors could touch inverters (KACO blueplanet xi-series) and learn about our brand new standardized PV solar systems for residential slanted roofs.

Additionally, we brought a Schletter WS WindSafe Roof-Top Rack System for Flat Roofs (picture: left).

Thanks to the whole team of volunteers from Solar San Antonio!

Hope to see you soon at the next solar event!
