Thin Film vs. C-si Modules


As you probably well know, we have been in front in promoting thin film modules for 3 years now when most online sellers were selling pricey c-si modules. Based on our modeling software, our testing and user testimonials, we are convinced that a-si modules will produce at least 9% more Kwh/yr than 12-14% more efficient (due to better temperature coefficients) c-si models in sunnier places; and suffice to say isn’t the name of the game Kwh produced and not DC STC watts?

So as long as you have the surface area, we have advocated and endorsed these modules. The concern about increased a-si framed module degradation compared to their c-si brethren has no substance. So based on my premise, how do you feel about thin film modules today? Would you use thin film modules in your current or future projects?
