Kyocera Solar boasts some of the most efficient and arguably the most reliable solar photovoltaic (solar PV) panels in the extremely competitive emerging global solar industry. A strong player in the solar field since long before solar power reached its current status as a mainstream and well-regarded electricity generation source. Kyocera Solar has made steady progress since its inception in 1975, in both the quality of its products as well as its service, working hard to get its well-earned reputation as one of the best manufacturers in the industry.
PROVEN FINANCIAL STABILITY
The KYOCERA GROUP is made up of 212 companies, accounting for more than 60,000 employees. The Kyocera Group is rated “Aa3” by Moody’s–high quality with very low credit risk (No current outstanding debt!), and boasts a strong balance sheet (Cash $2.7B USD in 2010). No other solar company has such strength – in a era many solar companies closing facilities. With Kyocera, you know your warranty is worth its weight!
Desert Knowledge Australia Solar Centre is not a research facility, but rather a public installation to demonstrate solar power, with output data available to anyone. Kyocera’s interpretation of data collected during the sites first 28-month period and downloaded from DKA shows that Kyocera solar technology delivered more kilowatt hours per installed kilowatt than any other competing crystalline solar module operating for the same 28-month period at the DKA site.
Kyocera manufactures and assembles solar cells and modules at its own worldwide production sites using a true vertical integration process called “Chain of Custody.” This superior approach gives Kyocera complete control over every step of the manufacturing process, producing modules with built-in quality, proven superior field performance, and tight power tolerance. Kyocera manufacturing facilities are certified to ISO 9001 & 14001, and produce state of the art technology.
Kyocera have been the worlds leading manufacture of innovative solar power solutions for over 35 years. During this time Kyocera has set the standard for harvesting the suns energy with dependable and affordable best-in-class technology. Kyocera recently celebrated the 25 year anniversary of the Sakura Solar Energy Centre. This world renowned facility is the site of a 43kw Grid-tie System, installed in 1984. The system consists of more than 1000 modules exposed to over 45,000 hours of solar irradiation. Research has proven that these panels have shown a degradation of just 9.6%!!!
All modules may look the same but clearly they are not. TÜV Rheinland, the leading- and toughest – provider of product testing recently completed rigorous performance testing on a number of solar modules. The Kyocera Solar module is the only module that passed these gruelling long-term tests. Furthermore, while congenital testing dictates that a separate individual module be used per sub test, the Long-Term Sequential Test carries out all four sub-tests on the same module, thereby evaluating it under conditions closer to a product faces over its actual lifetime:
- Damp Heat: 2 X IEC Testing
- Thermal Cycling: 2 X IEC Testing
- Humidity Refreeze: 4 X IEC Testing
These results confirmed what we already new: Kyocera continues to outperform the industry, even under the harshest conditions.
PROVEN EFFICIENCY AND YIELD
Through dedication to research and a drive to be the best, Kyocera has broken the multicrystalline silicon solar cell efficiency world record several times over. In addition, Kyocera has successfully increased the light-sensitive surface area of their solar cells, lowered resistance and reduced energy loss due to reflection – all to improve the efficiency of Kyocera solar panels. Kyocera are consistently setting the bar for the industry… and the world is better for it.
Kyocera’s virtually maintenance-free modules, prefaced integrated systems, and fully compatable components are used to provide clean, reliable power for residential, commercial and massive utility scale applications.
Kyocera modules incorporate advanced texturing technology to maximise electro-optical properties and black anodised aluminium frame to ensure high corrosion resistance. The sturdy frame can withstand a mechanical load capacity of upto 5400 N/m2 tested based on IEC 61215 ed.2.
Kyocera brings long term commitment to customers and quality into the Australian market. Kyocera has been active in the Australian market for more than 20 years and has delivered proven solutions in the residential and industrial sectors.
