The modules are also larger than customary 60 cell modules. The company says fewer modules are needed to achieve the same power yield, meaning that the costs for support frames and installation are lower. Around 90 percent less energy is needed to manufacture these modules than with conventional cells, Innotech says. The in-house research teams have developed a process that restores rejected solar cells to their full capacity: defective areas are identified using an infrared camera, before being automatically isolated with lasers. EcoMax modules are available with power ratings between 270 and 280 watts.
