First Solar Inc. has released the Series 3 FS-392 PV module, which is rated at 92.5 W. The new FS-392 module maintains all the company's existing IEC certifications and UL listings for the Series 3 family, including UL listing for 1000 V systems, the company says.

"The FS-392 demonstrates the success of First Solar's research and development investment to drive higher and higher module conversion efficiencies into production," says Tom Kuster, First Solar's vice president of product management and system technology.

"This increase in module efficiency, coupled with our thin-film technology's real-world yield advantage when compared to crystalline silicon PV, results in higher energy density and lower levelized cost of energy," he adds.
