Increase your solar panels efficiency

iLumen: PV Solutions Provider

From the beginning of their lifetime, solar panels suffer from degradation. As time goes on, efficiency losses increase.

This phenomenon is called PID (Potential Induced Degradation). We found the solution!

We developed the PIDbox, a patented device that increases the efficiency of solar panels and extends their lifetime.

A common PV plant on average gains 7%. efficiency after having the PIDbox installed. Want to know what that means for your return on investment? 

What is PID

What is PID?

PID or Potential Induced Degradation occurs on all photovoltaic panels, often without the owner of the installation being aware of it.

As a result, solar panels don’t achieve the expected return in 20 years. The PID process often occurs after 2 to 3 years, from which time the degradation will proceed quickly.

How to solve PID

How do we deal with PID?

The efficiency losses caused by Potential Induced Degradation can be avoided by installing a PIDbox.

This device is installed between the solar panels and the inverter and will regenerate the solar cells affected by PID and extend their lifetime.

PID affected

Is my PV plant PID affected?

No matter what type and what age, your solar panels will be subjected to Potential Induced Degradation. The only question is to which extent.

iLumen offers you the opportunity to monitor the performance of your PV system. This way, you can immediately determine the extent to which your solar panels suffer from efficiency losses.

Customer references

One of my solar parks was confronted with very negative returns I started looking for a partner that could help me to solve this issue and this way I came into contact with iLumen. They installed the PIDbox and only after 3 months it was clear that my returns were suddenly above expectation. Eventually, we applied the PIDbox technology of iLumen to all of my solar parks. Also at these plants, results were great!

Throughout our monthly efficiency report we can follow up all gains perfectly. We had PIDboxes placed on our 3 installations this March. Already in April and May we saw an increase in efficiency. The investment in the PIDbox clearly was a very good choice.”

Barely one week after the installation of the PIDbox, the performance of our solar modules increased by as much as 15%. We could benefit immediately from the efficiency increases. The company was also extremely pleased with the outcome of this test

We installed the PIDbox of iLumen on a PV plant equipped with Tigo optimizers. A few months later we observed by means of our SolarLog monitoring system that the performance of the solar panels on which a PIDbox was installed, had greatly improved in comparison with panels on which no PIDbox was installed.”

For a long time, my thin film solar panels didn’t deliver sufficient returns. Although I initially had some doubts, I decided to install the PIDbox. The results were amazing! Shortly after the installation of the PIDbox, the solar panels achieved the desired results. I’m really relieved that PID in thin film solar panels is reversible.
