Longer Module Lifetime Provides Greater Investment Returns
Backsheets play a critical role in protecting PV modules and delivering needed module lifetime.
Backsheets protect the modules from the environment while providing electrical insulation. Backsheet failures can lead to module failure modes such as catastrophic failure, unacceptable power degradation and safety failures. The impact can be very significant, ranging from brand and reputation damage to bodily harm.
The bottom line is that for approximately a penny a watt ($.013), you can help protect your company and your customers from expensive failures and safety issues. The lifetime gains and resulting financial benefits far outweigh the incremental investment in higher quality materials. In today’s dynamic market environment, it makes good sense to offer PV modules that stand the test of time.
