BSolar Develops Double-Sided Solar Cells

The Israeli company BSolar has perfected bifacial solar cells that they say produces up to 30% KWH per KWp in a standard application and up to 50% in vertical ones. Because they are made with standard equipment, the double-sided monocrystalline silicon cells can be feasible for the mass market. They are made with boron instead of aluminum which increases the cell's efficiency when the backside of the cell absorbs reflective light. Boron is more expensive to use but is also more resistant to breakage.
