circle arrow graphicThe Solar industry is engaged in an intense technology race to produce the most efficient solar cells. This solar efficiency race has intensified as a response to the declining price of crystalline silicon modules and panels from China. More efficient solar cells justify a higher panel price. 



  • How does efficiency affect the ROI over the life of the panel for the solar consumer?  
  • Are the solar manufacturers investing in the right technology to win the race? 
  • Does the winner in this efficiency race win the competition for consumer dollars?
  • Are there other winning strategies and approaches?
