The World’s Most Powerful Thin Film Module to Date
For 20+ years, First Solar has pushed the leading edge of PV thin film technology to boost efficiency and lower LCOE. Now, First Solar Series 6 CuRe modules, with optimized design and true semiconductor innovation, delivers the lowest warranted degradation rate and highest life-time energy for large-scale solar projects.
Series 6 CuRe modules deliver up to 4.5% more energy in year 1, and up to 10.5% more energy over their lifetime when compared to the leading bifacial c-Si modules.*
This significant lifetime energy advantage is achieved through true semi-conductor innovation and the unique properties of our thin film technology, including:
Degradation - -
Lowest Warranted Degradation Rate
Series 6 CuRe modules boast the industry’s lowest warranted long-term degradation rate of 0.2%, ensuring the module will retain at least 92% of its original performance over its 30-year warranty period.
Temperature Coefficient - -
Superior Temperature Coefficient & Spectral Response
Series 6 CuRe’s industry-leading temperature coefficient of -0.28%/⁰C delivers up to 4% more annual energy in hot climates, and its superior spectral response delivers up to 4% more annual energy in high humidity environments.
Shading Response - -
Superior Shading Response
A distinct cell design renders Series 6 CuRe modules less sensitive to power loss from shading. With Series 6 CuRe, only the shaded area is impacted; typical silicon panels turn off disproportionately large portions of the panel (both shaded and non-shaded) due to their electrical design.
