Solar Companies with the word 'Solar' in their name

1. Unisolar

The website says "UNI-SOLAR is the world’s largest producer of flexible solar panels with a light, durable product that provides more total energy production than any other solar panel on the planet."

Uses "triple Junction Technology"

I gather this are thin film technology based on amorphous silicon technology with a proprietary manufacturing process.

2. First Solar -

This is what the website says "Using cadmium telluride (CdTe) as the semiconductor material, First Solar makes it affordable to convert solar energy into the type of electricity we use everyday."

These are thin film cells - and here are some advantages of using this thin film technology as per their website "CdTe also converts low and diffuse light to electricity more efficiently than conventional cells. Together, this means First Solar modules produce more electricity on hot days, under cloudy weather and across a larger percent of normal daylight. "

3. Sun Power -

These appear to be one of the most efficient cells available today.
