Renowned American PV inspection agency PVEL shared the results of their in-depth research on micro-cracks. They investigated how micro-cracks affect the output step by step; from bill of materials to weather conditions.
“A recent analysis of PV modules installed in various projects found that severe cell cracks caused power losses as high as 9% after just four months of field exposure”.
Take this outcome together with our previous research on the increasing number of defects on new modules and the necessity for quality control is more urgent than ever.
