Recently Sharp broke the solar record as being the most efficient photovoltaic cell on the market, this is exciting news especially since this is the preferred photovoltaic cell of Bellasolar. Bellasolar has been using the Sharp photovoltaic cells since they began installing solar systems.

“Sharp just signaled a bright future for renewable energy as it achieved a new solar cell efficiency record of 43.5%, eclipsing its previous record of 36.9% set in November. Sharp shattered the efficiency record with its concentrator triple-junction compound solar cell, which uses a lens-based system to focus sunlight directly onto the cells in order to generate electricity. This latest breakthrough puts solar power one step closer to grid parity.” For the rest of the article please visit: www.inhabitat.com/sharps-concentrator-solar-cell-sets-43-5-conversion-efficiency-record/
