ZEBRA is the new back-contact module with power up to 360 Watt. FuturaSun’s latest creation is the new high-efficiency monocrystalline photovoltaic model with IBC (Interdigitated Back Contact) technology. The new ZEBRA series is a FuturaSun high-end product.
This new panel consists of 120 laminated and framed IBC half-cut cells, whose size can be compared to a standard 60-cell module (1004×1685 mm). The electrical contacts are on the back: no ribbons, nothing that covers the cell, no shade, maximum light absorption.
This new technology is currently reaching 360 Watt with a 21.3% module efficiency in the version with the white back sheet. The elegant total black design, with black back sheet and frame, can reach 340 to 350 Watt. It is particularly suitable for residential applications and buildings with a high architectural value.
FuturaSun was established in 2008 by a team of managers in Veneto, Italy’s hub of the photovoltaic industry.
However, FuturaSun is not one of those many solar companies which enjoyed extremely rapid growth during the years of photovoltaic boom: we actually started our company just at the time when the first signs of the sector’s decline began to show in Italy, only to plummet in the subsequent years. So while several big players disappeared from the photovoltaic scene, FuturaSun has continued along its journey of growth, initially taking small steps and gaining momentum later.
Why is this? Perhaps because we really like challenges and we are a company which bucks the trend. Unlike other Italian solar companies, we immediately oriented ourselves towards foreign markets. Today we sell in over 70 countries , and have achieved double-digit sales growth year on year.
