Manufacturing in-house PV cells and increasing the efficiency of solar cells is one of the most effective drivers to reduce the cost of PV modules. We are currently in the process of establishing our cell manufacturing lines to produce our own cells as well as working on developing new high-efficiency monocrystalline and multicrystalline cell technology. Manufacturing our own cells in-house will reduce the cost of modules, increase quality, and ensure a stable supply of cells.

A PV cell is a device made from polysilicon wafers that converts sunlight into electricity by a process known as the photovoltaic effect. The conversion efficiency of a PV cell is the ratio of electrical energy produced by the cell to the energy from sunlight that reaches the cell. The conversion efficiency of PV cells is determined to a large extent by the quality of wafers used to produce the PV cells, which in turn is determined by the quality of polysilicon used in the ingot casting process.
