"CLGP is made possible by idealPV technology which, among other advances, eliminates reverse conduction in solar cells. Reverse conduction is a major problem in solar panels, causing extreme heat as cells are forced into reverse bias. This leads to reduced efficiency and early failure. Eliminating reverse conduction removes over 50% of the rejection specifications for solar cells: CLGP can use solar cells that traditional manufacturers cannot, simply because the cells (otherwise perfectly good) cannot withstand reverse bias. Elimination of reverse conduction also eliminates costly and unreliable bypass diodes and their complex electrical connections. These advances simplify solar panel assembly, while adding durability, performance, longevity, and enhanced safety features...."
