Thin film technologies such as amorphous silicon (aSi), CIGS (copper, indium, galium, (di)selenide) and cadmium telluride (CdTe) typically have efficiencies of 5 - 10% that produce energy in low light conditions.
Thin film modules can come in a flexible form and can be applied to curved metal panels.
Thin film modules can weigh as light as 0 .7/lbs per square foot installed and can be a great solution when building structures cannot handle additional weight.
The thin film industry strives to dramatically decrease the cost of manufacturing and ultimately the cost of the modules in the years to come.
Metanna thin film modules include but are not limited to manufacturers such as XunLight, Solopower, etc.
