Wuxi Suntech has achieved a new round of efficiency breakthroughs for its silicon solar cells. Tested by the National Center of Supervision and Inspection on Solar Photovoltaic Products Quality, the conversion efficiencies of Suntech's monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar cells have reached yields as high as 20.82% and 19.11% respectively, positioning Suntech as a leader in the global photovoltaic industry.

These advances come only two months after Suntech first introduced its high-efficiency HyPro monocrystalline silicon cells, which at the time had a 20.5% efficiency yield. Suntech's HyPro is available in 60 cell and 72 cell modules with 290W and 330W output power respectively, which represent an average of 20W power increase, or 7.4% and 6.5% respectively, above the industry standards.
