First Solar's advanced thin film solar modules have set the industry benchmark
with over 8 gigawatts (GW) installed worldwide and a proven performance
advantage over conventional crystalline silicon solar modules. Generating up to
8% more energy than competing modules with the same power rating,
First Solar's Series 3 Black Plus PV Modules deliver superior performance and

Proven energy yield advantage:
        • Up to 8% more energy than conventional crystalline silicon solor modules
           with the same power
        • Superior temperature coefficient (-0.29%/°C) resulting in greater energy
           yield in typical field operating temperatures
        • Superior spectral response resulting in a proven energy yield advantage in
           humid environments
Advanced performance & reliability:
        • Improved long-term power-output and extended reliability test performance
        • Highly predictable energy in all climates and applications
        • Reliable performance in high temperature, high humidity, extreme desert
           and coastal environments
