Silicon Energy (Arlington, WA) and DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions (Wilmington, DE) have introduced glass-glass polycrystalline silicon (cSi) photovoltaic (PV) power-generating modules made with DuPont™ PV5300 series ionomer-based encapsulant for added module strength and durability. Two 60-mil layers of the encapsulant surround silicon wafers to add high-transmittance tempered glass and increased flexural strength over traditional modules. The encapsulant is also resistant to moisture intrusion.
