This solar park is installed with 1.5 million thin-film photovoltaic modules equipped with multi-contact connectors and SMA inverters. “The next-generation photovoltaic thin-film panels are much more efficient than conventional silicon-based modules.”
The CdTe film modules have better energy yield and power rating when compared to conventional solar modules…
