TotalEnergies Ecosolutions advantage
SunPower® photovoltaic modules are environmentally different from other solar modules in the following ways
Higher module efficiency: SunPower® modules have an efficiency of over 20% for the E-Series, 20% for the X-Series, and 21% for the A-Series, compared to the average efficiency of conventional silicon modules of 17-19% and 16-18% for modules using thin-film technology.
Reduced consumption of purified silicon during the production process: the thickness of SunPower® wafers is around 130μm, compared to 180μm for conventional silicon cells, which further reduces the consumption of silicon and therefore the energy required for its production.
The Environmental Performance
Compared to the market reference, and for equal service, SunPower® high-efficiency solar panels allow our customers:
- 46% reduction in CO2eq. emissions.
