Verified Reliability

Kyocera have offered convincing evidence that quality pays off in the long run: 

Kyocera modules are PID-resistant

Kyocera was one of only four manufacturers whose modules passed the high-voltage stress test at the Fraunhofer Center for Silicon Photovoltaics CSP without any signs of potential induced degradation (PID).

Kyocera modules pass TÜV long-term sequential test

Kyocera modules were the first in the world to have been certified in the long-term sequential test carried out by TÜV Rheinland. In this test, solar modules were subjected to even more stringent requirements than those of the more commonly used IEC 61215 standard. Instead of one separate module for each test, the same module is used for all four individual tests in succession. Tested criteria were damp-heat, thermal cycling, humidity-freeze and the bypass diodes with a test period of 12 months.

Kyocera test system since 1984 in Sakura, Japan

In 1984, Kyocera Solar installed a 43-kWp test system in Sakura, Japan. The modules are still achieving excellent results. With an average degradation of just 9.6% after 25 years, the test system provides a very impressive example of real-life operation. It is notable that these excellent results are achieved by modules produced using the materials and technology available at the time of manufacture. The results are evidence of the above average service life of our solar cells.

Kyocera solar technology for the Toyota Prius

With Kyocera comfortably fulfilling the strict requirements under the Toyota quality management rules, our solar modules have now been integrated into the third generation of the Toyota Prius. The innovative technological concept: a solar-powered system ventilates the passenger compartment while the vehicle is parked.
