XsunX TFPV Products
XsunX has designed its TFPV product to service a wide range of installation environments and deliver performance characteristics addressing the needs of solar farm and utility grade applications. We believe that our XsunX ASI-120 module delivers high power output (relative to other thin films), and size and framing that would allow for the use of many existing mounting systems. In doing so, we believe our modules strike a balance between silicon wafer modules and lower rated power thin film modules.
In response to market interest XsunX recently funded a comparative analysis of solar technologies performed by IBIS & Associates. The report, released in January 2008, provides insight to the Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE), a metric by which electricity generation technologies are compared. The analysis compared the XsunX ASI-120 module with a group of other solar technologies in a 1MW simulated installation in the Phoenix and Portland areas.
The IBIS study found cost and performance advantages in the use of the XsunX a-Si solar technology in contrast to conventional silicon wafer, and three other commercialized TFPV technologies. As shown within the study, XsunX believes that its ASI-120 solar module can provide lower cost and superior performance to a marketplace seeking products that consistently and dependably deliver electricity over a wide range off installation environments.
