Suntech – World-Class Manufacturing
State-of-the-art manufacturing lies at the core of Suntech’s business and enables us to deliver high-quality solar products to our customers at an affordable price. Our 1-Gigawatt manufacturing capacity makes Suntech the largest module manufacturer in the world, allowing us to offer advanced products and leverage economies of scale. Suntech manufacturing sites, located in China, Japan and the United States, follow the strictest production guidelines and are staffed by highly-trained manufacturing experts.
Suntech solar cells undergo a chemical surface micro-texturing process that improves their ability to capture light. The cell production facility employs industry-leading manufacturing techniques to create high conversion efficiency solar cells.
Cells with similar electrical characteristics are matched during module assembly to minimize efficiency losses. Laminated modules are equipped with corrosion-resistant frames and weather-proof electrical components to create a durable, water-tight product.
TESTING AND VERIFICATION
Our quality control program features 52 tests and checks throughout the cell and module manufacturing process. Once fully assembled, all Suntech modules undergo a final performance test and are categorized based on power and current production. Our rigorous review process ensures we deliver only the highest quality products to our customers.

SolFocus – CPV Systems
SolFocus is a leading supplier of Concentrator Photovoltaic (CPV) systems. Featuring a reflective optical system to concentrate sunlight at 650 times onto very small high-efficiency multi-junction PV cells, the company’s high efficiency and high performance systems provide the lowest levelized cost of energy (LCOE) in high sun regions. These CPV systems are certified to IEC 62108 industry standard, and have been designed for high reliability in extreme operating environments with very low maintenance requirements. Due to the incorporation of primarily glass and aluminum, a robust passive thermal management system, and a dependable dual-axis tracking system, SolFocus CPV systems have been field-proven to deliver energy at projected levels. SolFocus CPV panels come with a power performance warranty that is backed by Munich Re. With the lightest environmental footprint of any solar technology, SolFocus CPV meets the need not just for clean energy, but a superior cradle-to-cradle footprint.
