LOF coloured solar panels promise enhanced output performance
By Anthony Capkun
July 29, 2020 – LOF Solar Corp.—a manufacturer of coloured solar cells, panels and building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV)—is offering a new solution whereby their standard cells are cut into two equal halves.
The wattage produced per cell is halved and resistance losses on cell and module level are reduced to one quarter. The path of the generated current is shortened by dividing the modules, further reducing resistance losses. The results, says LOF, are enhanced output performance, a decrease in module temperatures, and reduced risks of “hot spot effect” and “shadowing effect”.
