Our groundbreaking experience over more than a decade (since 2005) leads to improvements in energy production as compared to yesteryear’s solar systems.
Prism’s modules use highly efficient N-type silicon solar cells with an unprecedented warrantied near equal backside efficiency.
And Why It Matters
Unlike traditional solar modules, where photo-voltaic (PV) cells can only use the sunlight that strikes the front of the module, Prism’s bifacial modules generate energy on both sides, capturing a substantial amount of light scattered from clouds and surrounding surfaces. In traditional modules this additional light is NOT converted into electricity.
Our solutions are especially valuable when Prism's modules are mounted over highly reflective backgrounds, such as white roof, snow, sand, or other light-colored surfaces.
We build to outlast the competition, using tempered glass-on-glass design and hermetical sealing to protect the PV cells inside the module from any external damage. All components used are of the highest quality carefully sourced from the leading global partners.
This unique combination of N-type silicon with our patented module design results in virtually zero potential and light induced degradations (PID; LID), guaranteeing outstanding performance over the lifetime of your project, and even beyond.
Our design, engineering, and advanced manufacturing has allowed our modules to be recognized as the first to receive the highest quality rating of Quality Plus (Q+) from TÜV Rheinland, a globally recognized independent testing, inspection, and certification company.
“Today, module manufacturers have to take extra steps with product safety testing, not only to be considered for selection on large-scale projects, but really to maintain a competitive edge. It’s no longer enough to have IEC 61215: everyone has that. Qualification Plus is rapidly becoming the new benchmark.”

A few additional highlights:
exceptional weight load rating of 5,400 Pa (~113 psf);
frameless design eliminates the need for modules to be grounded, makes them adaptable for use with various styles of racking and mounting, including fully water & weather proof installations (like the one pictured above); and
simplified cable management when using our recommended racking solutions with built in cable chases that protect and hide all electrical connections, creating a clean, aesthetically pleasant look.
