The HyET Solar modules produce energy in a more efficient way than conventional glass solar panels. This is because of two unique product specifications.
Efficiency is tested at standard test conditions such as 25ºC module temperature. However, modules may reach 60+ ºC which typically reduces the efficiency. Due to a low temperature coefficient, the energy produced per kWp installed power is typically 15% higher than conventional glass based systems.
In a typical case, we consider a PV installation on a 30m2 trapezoid roof with a chimney. Standard glass based panels reach a maximum coverage of 60%. With the HyET Solar modules a roof coverage of up to 90% is possible. As shown in the example, this allows a typical roof to produce more energy at a lower LCOE.Back to overview
