Limited use of lead solder
Mitsubishi Electric has been in the solar electric field since its infancy in the 70s, when they made the first solar panels to provide power to satellites. They continue to lead the industry with their photovoltaic modules, designed both for commercial and residential grid-tie applications. Mitsubishi solar panels offer both high performance and reliability and meet the requirements of international quality standards (UL 1703, IEC 61215, TÜV Safety Class II).
Mitsubishi Electric has perfected a manufacturing process that limits the use of harmful lead solder by using silver electrodes on the surface of their solar panels. This proprietary technology makes their panels especially weather resistant. It also allows panels to uniformly reflect the sun’s rays, improving cell efficiency. Solar panels with high efficiency make the best use of limited space, and lower costs by reducing the number of modules needed. Their newest panels boast an efficiency rating of 13.7 percent.
Further environmentally friendly innovation has reduced the energy it takes to produce their panels.
TECH TIP: The 170-watt and larger modules are designed for use in high-voltage grid-tie applications, but can be used in large industrial and off-grid applications for battery charging with the appropriate MPPT charge controller.)
