Traditionally 156 millimeter mono-crystalline solar wafers are pseudo-square with the corners being cut off. The cut-off corners result in a smaller area from which solar cells and panels can capture sunlight. Comtec Solar’s Perfect Wafer enables cell and panel-makers to increase the active area and hence the amount of electricity generated.

Neo Solar’s newly launched Perfect Cell using Perfect Wafer demonstrates panel-makers the ability to increase power density by more than 3% and has an average conversion efficiency of 17.8%. With Neo Solar’s technology advancement, Perfect Cell offers extremely low light induced degradation with superior output that can easily exceed 250 W.

Comtec Solar’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Zhang said: “We are pleased to join hands with international leading solar cell manufacturers and support them in producing cells and panels of enhanced efficiency. The framework supply agreements are recognition of our efforts in strengthening R&D and enhancing production knowhow in producing high quality, large sized wafers that offer superior conversion efficiencies. We will continue our R&D effort in this regard to develop “Perfect Wafer” of even larger sizes to support the business growth of our customers.”

Neo Solar’s Chairman Quincy Lin said: “Including such a creative wafer maker into our diversified wafer base shall further enhance our capacity on volume delivery of the newly launched “Perfect Cell”. With its superior power generation performance and homogeneous dark appearance, NSP provides a “perfect choice” for system integrators to serve in both roof-top installations and BIPV application.”
