Innovative Back Rail Mounting System
Series 7 FT1 utilizes domestically sourced galvanized steel back rails and has been optimized for fixed-tilt applications.
Because there is no sunny-side frame to trap dirt and pooled water, this innovative design also promotes natural rain runoff, reduces soiling and improves energy performance.
Larger Module Form Factor
First Solar’s proprietary manufacturing process and CadTel technology allow more form factor flexibility because it is not constrained by industry standard cell or wafer sizes. Along with the added strength and rigidity of galvanized steel back rails, the 1215mm x 2300mm module design optimizes form and function without fear of power loss from cell cracking or other performance-related issues prevalent in crystalline silicon modules.
More Lifetime Energy per Nameplate Watt
Series 7 modules feature the industry’s best 0.3% warranty-backed annual degradation rate, and boast a superior temperature coefficient, spectral and shading response – delivering more lifetime energy per installed watt compared to leading bifacial crystalline silicon PV panels.
A Collaborative Process for Success
From day one, First Solar’s product engineering team has worked in deep collaboration with leading EPCs, structure and component providers to create a module that is part of an integrated system solution. By sharing designs and incorporating feedback from industry partners, First Solar has designed a module that is truly optimized for form, function, and cost.
