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.

Highest Lifetime Energy

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.

Immune to Cell Cracking  

Inherent Immunity to Cell-Cracking, LID and LeTID

Series 6 CuRe modules are durable with glass/glass construction and inherently immune to cell-cracking. This immunity is backed by the industry’s first and only product warranty specific to power loss from cell cracking. Plus, our advanced thin-film technology is inherently immune to Light Induced Degradation (LID) and Light and Elevated Temperature Induced Degradation (LeTID) failure modes that affect c-Si modules.

Optimized Design to Enhance Your Bottom Line

Built on the proven Series 6 Plus platform, Series 6 CuRe modules are optimized to create more value for our customers, from manufacturing to shipping to installation.

 

Larger Form Factor  

Larger Form Factor

True semi-conductor advancements combined with a larger form factor, deliver more watts per install operation, increased installation velocity, and minimal impact to structure design.

Lower Install Costs  

Lower Installation Costs

Designed for quick and easy two-person installation. SpeedSlot mounting holes offer more mounting options to common fixed-tilt and tracking systems, minimizing onsite engineering, reducing material costs, and enabling the fastest installation time in the industry.

Optimized Design  

Optimized Interior Array Design

Available in two product variants that are easily matched to structure zones.

Interior-Exterior Array

 

Industry-Leading Reliability

The Series 6 platform is one of the most rigorously tested, longest lasting platforms on the market. Series 6 CuRe’s lifetime energy advantage plus 30-year power output warranty mean more confidence in long-term energy yield and product durability.

Manufacturing

Manufactured under one roof for a globally consistent, high-quality product

Testing

Top Performer in Industry-Leading Extended Durability Testing

Warranty

30-Year Power Output Warranty

Industry’s Best Environmental Profile

First Solar is mindful of environmental impact. With the smallest CO2 footprint, lowest water usage, fastest energy payback (plus a first ever in-house recycling program), Series 6 CuRe modules are the industry’s most eco-efficient PV solution.
