Product Description

Evergreen Solar Module 120 WattProducing their own wafers, cells and modules assures that the highest quality components go into every one of Evergreen's panels. And since they are made with String Ribbon™ technology, their panels take advantage of one of the newest, fastest-growing, most environmentally friendly manufacturing processes available in the world.

Evergreen Solar is a fully integrated, independent company. Solar is their only business. Evergreen's commitment to the environment is matched only by their commitment to their customers. If you want the best in solar, make the pure choice…Evergreen Solar panels.

Evergreen will be phasing out the old 12/24V NKP line  of modules with the field configurable junction box in favor of the new GDK line.  This new line of 12V only modules will have slim sealed J-boxes with built in MC Connectors on them, making installation a snap.

Cedar Series 12V Photovoltaic Modules
Designed for maximum performance: safe, reliable, versatile and easy to install.

  • Easier, faster more accurate wiring
    • Sealed junction box never needs maintenance.
    • Easy, accurate, reliable electrical connections
    • Comes with factory-installed wires, MC connectors, and bypass diode(s).
  • Predictable, reliable, long-term performance
    • Each module is individually tested to ensure field performance meets or exceeds specifications.
    • Solar cells are matched to reduce internal losses and the possibility of hot spots.
    • Rugged, durable anodized aluminum frame makes for strong, stable mechanical mounting.
    • Industry standard EVA (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate) and Tedlar™ construction protects solar cells from mechanical and environmental stress.
  • Advanced technology with promise for the future
    • String Ribbon™ polycrystalline solar cells outperform thin films and achieve comparable performance to bulk crystalline technologies while using half as much silicon.
    • The proprietary cell fabrication process is among the most environmentally friendly in the business.
  • The power of PV
    • Photovoltaics (PV) provide clean, quiet, reliable electricity from sunlight.
    • No moving parts to wear out.
    • No emissions - power that's good for the environment.
    • The Sun - a limitless, readily-available power source.


To understand the importance of String Ribbon technology is to grasp the elegant balance it strikes between conventional and emerging technologies.

String Ribbon TechnologySimple String Ribbon combines the best attributes of conventional crystalline silicon and emerging thin films. It achieves the reliability, stability, high efficiency, and market acceptance of crystalline silicon - without the inherent cost and waste of sawing. And it embodies the efficient material utilization and potential for continuous processing of thin films, but with a more manufacturable process.

Reliable In the String Ribbon technique, two high temperature strings are pulled vertically through a shallow silicon melt, and the molten silicon spans and freezes between the strings. The process is continuous: long strings are unwound from spools; the melt is replenished; and the silicon ribbon is cut to length for further processing, without interrupting growth. This advantage in material efficiency means String Ribbon yields over twice as many solar cells per pound of silicon as conventional methods. Additionally, the resulting distinctive shape of the solar cell allows for a high packing density.

Advanced Ongoing technology development shows great promise for even lower cost. Early experiments have produced 15% solar cells on thin 100 micron wafers. And downstream, in cells and modules, Evergreen Solar is developing processes that are simple, continuous, non-vacuum, high throughput, environmentally benign, and energy efficient.
