  • Glass free, flexible thin film solar panel
  • Continues to deliver power when damaged or perforated
  • Up to 20% higher production than comparable glass panel
  • Up to 40% of rated output in severe overcast
  • Better performance at non-ideal angle of incidence
  • Most suited for mobile- and high risk applications
  • Amorphous Silicon, triple junction cell architecture

The solar cells of the Atacama-79 absorb more of the blue light spectrum than any other technology, coupled with the lowest temperature coefficient in the market, the Atacama-79 delivers up to 20% more power during a time period than similar glass/crystalline solar panels(Ruther et al). Therefore, the performance of the Atacama-79 should be compared to 95W glass/crystalline panels.
