The anodized aluminum frame of the module is held in a terracotta-brown clay, while the backsheet in the same color backs up the harmonious overall impression. The solar cells have deliberately been kept in the traditional color so that, besides satisfying aesthetic demands, the economic viability of the PV array is also assured.
The module is initially being offered with a 180 watts peak output and an exclusively positive output tolerance of up to five watts peak. This is said to hold true even following the natural loss of output due to initial light-induced degradation. An aluminum junction box improves heat dissipation from the cells. The terracotta module is to be obtainable on the German market from the third quarter of 2011.
