contacts for solar cells
ETC Solar is commercializing world’s highest performance front contact technology for solar cells: effectively transparent contacts (ETCs). ETCs are the first industrially viable approach to mitigate shading losses; the largest practical loss in nearly all types of solar cells. ETC Solar received multiple grants, awards and prizes. In addition, we hold eight (8) international patents that cover the ETC technology. We are currently testing with potential customers and are working on finishing our products.
