Kyocera Solar Modules Being Rated “Performance Leader” by GTM Research

Kyocera’s solar module was ranked as “Performance Leader” in GTM Research’s July 2014 PV Module Reliability Scorecard. The independent test was conducted by PV Evolution Labs and ranked performance of the 15 participating manufacturers in three categories: Performance Leaders, Middle Performers or Low Performers.

“With the exception of one manufacturer, Kyocera, no company consistently ranked within the Performance Leaders group for all test regimens,” GTM Research noted. “Results showed that most producers that performed well in one test did not necessarily perform well in all tests.”

The tests included Temperature Cycling, Dynamic Mechanical Load, Humidity Freeze, Damp Heat, and two Potential Induced Degradation Tests – both Positive and Negative. PV Evolution Labs’ stringent test protocols exceeded the current industry standards to emulate various real-world climatic conditions over lifetime periods while observing power degradation performance of the solar modules being evaluated.

“Kyocera has proven time and again, both in independent testing and by solar modules performing uninterruptedly in the field for decades, that our modules are able to consistently produce clean, renewable energy even in the harshest conditions,” said Steve Hill, president of Kyocera Solar Inc.

Kyocera solar modules consistently demonstrate high reliability. They have passed tests include TUV Rheinland’s rigorous Salt Mist Corrosion Test, PID (Potential Induced Degradation) resistant, and TÜV Rheinland’s Long-Term Sequential Test.
