Kyocera solar panels have again ranked as the ONLY module to rank in the Top Performer group in all of the categories in the new 2016 PV Module Reliability Scorecard. The first Scorecard was done in 2014, where they also ranked in the "Top Performer" group in all of the categories. Click Here to read article.

Kyocera's advanced cell processing technology and automated production facilities have produced a multi-crystal solar cell with an efficiency of over 16%. All Kyocera solar panels are constructed using a tempered glass front, EVA pottant and a PVF backing to provide maximum protection from the most severe environmental conditions. The entire laminate is framed in a heavy duty anodized aluminum frame to provide structural strength and ease of installation. Because Kyocera solar modules are so efficient less space is required than other solar panels of equal output. This translates to both more wattage per square foot and lower mounting structure cost.

And did you know this about Kyocera? There's a reason why the boating community loves Kyocera solar panels. They have passed rigorous tests that show that they will outperform other other brand solar panels in saltwater environments. Kyocera Solar's entire product line of solar modules passed the Salt Mist Corrosion Test, showing that their solar panels are ideally suited for long-term deployment in marine and coastal areas. As anyone who's spent much time near the ocean knows, salt mist is very corrosive that can damage key components of the solar panel, including the frame, internal wiring, and even the glass. However, the tests show that the Kyocera solar panels are built to withstand the salt mist.
