First Solar FS Series 2 PV Module

FS Series 2 PV 270-280

Key Features: 
  • Produces high energy output across a wide range of climatic conditions with excellent temperature response coefficient
  • Proven to perform as predicted with a high Performance Ratio (PR)
  • Frameless laminate is robust, cost-effective and recyclable, and does not require module grounding
  • Manufactured in highly automated, state-of-the-art facilities certified to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 quality and environmental management standards
Thin film solutions for high performance PV systems First Solar FS Series 2™ PV Modules are IEC 61646 and IEC 61730 certified for use in systems up to 1000 VDC, UL Listed (600VDC), and meet the requirements of Safety Class II. First Solar provides cost effective thin film module solutions to leading solar project developers and system integrators for large scale, grid-connected solar power plants. First Solar application engineers provide technical support and comprehensive product documentation to support the design, installation, and long term operations of high performance PV systems.


Material and workmanship warranty for five (5) years and a power output warranty of 90% of the nominal output power rating (Pmpp+/- 5%) during the first ten (10) years and 80% during twenty-five (25) years subject to the warranty terms and conditions.
Modules are life cycle managed with a collection and recycling program, providing module owners with no cost, pre-funded, end-of-life take back, and recycling of the modules.
