Kyocera Releases New Solar Package

March 19, 2004 [] Kyocera Corporation will offer a new solar power generation system, Solar Power Plant III, in April. The system is comprised of solar modules and a power conditioner of improved performance, recently developed for the public and industrial markets by Kyocera’s Solar Energy Division. The company said their new module boasts a 13.98% module conversion efficiency and 178.6 W output. The module has increased output while maintaining the same outside dimensions as that of the conventional Kyocera model, the 167W module. Therefore, a standard unit (10kW), which formerly consisted of 60 sheets for the 167W module, can now be made with 56 sheets for the new module.
