Established in 2005, NexPower Technology is a subsidiary of a world-class leading semiconductor foundry, United Microelectronics Corporation (NYSE: UMC). Since its inception, NexPower has committed itself to advancing the development and applications of solar photovoltaic technologies. Currently our major products are µc-Si tandem solar PV modules.
Hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H, abbreviated to a-Si) is the most well-developed thin film photovoltaic (PV) technology. Silicon thin film PV with high absorption coefficient also brings the benefit of module installation against any direction of sunlight. In fact, there is a better performance in weak sunlight environment. Silicon thin film PV with low temperature coefficient has much better performance at high ambient temperature, and outputs power robustly even in shading condition. In summary, silicon thin film PV generates greater electricity power than crystalline silicon PV (based on equivalent specified power of PV modules).
