Higher field output:
Field trials at its 302.4 kWp rooftop R&D installation has conclusively proved that modules using solar glass from Gujarat Borosil have generated 7.5% more electricity than modules made using solar glass from a leading European solar manufacturer.
Laboratory tests conducted at PhotoVoltaik-Institut AG, Berlin have established that solar glass from Gujarat Borosil has the highest resistance to PID (potential induced degradation) when compared with Solar glass from leading manufacturers in Europe and China.
Lowest iron content:
At 76 PPM, the solar glass from Gujarat Borosil is the lowest iron content glass in the world.
Toxin free glass:
Gujarat Borosil offers the only high-performance textured solar glass in the world which is free of highly toxic antimony and arsenic.
Laboratory measurements show that the anti-reflective coating offered by Gujarat Borosil has excellent durability as well as outstanding performance characteristics.
Glass efficiency value:
SPF, a leading test Institute in Switzerland, whose report is widely accepted by manufacturers of photo voltaic modules, has measured the glass efficiency of the Gujarat Borosil product as 0.952, thus putting it at the highest efficiency amongst the glasses tested by them.
Solar glass from Gujarat Borosil finds application in Photo voltaic modules, solar thermal flat plate collectors, high-efficiency greenhouses.
The output of solar glass from Gujarat Borosil is enough to manufacture about 1GW of modules annually.
Patterned glass for architectural applications:
The patterned glass offered by Gujarat Borosil in several attractive patterns, is of the highest quality anywhere in the world.
