SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland, -- Suntech presents modules with improved efficiency at Ecobuild and shows solar energy is still a profitable investment despite projected FIT cuts

Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STP), the world's largest producer of solar panels, ramps-up module efficiency. At Ecobuild 2012 Suntech presents the first of a whole series of modules with improved efficiency. Suntech's monocrystalline solar modules STP200S and STP195S - 24/Ad+, which are ideal for the UK residential market, now offer an improved efficiency of 15.7 percent and show how solar power is still a profitable investment even if feed-in tariffs are being shortened.

"Despite the expected feed-in tariff cuts the UK government still adheres to the plan of installing an additional 22GW of solar power until 2020," said Vedat Guergeli, Vice President Sales and Marketing for Europe. "Even more reason for the industry to work on improved efficiency to make sure solar energy continues to be an attractive energy resource - not only to support the environment but also as a solid investment. Suntech utilised improved production processes and advanced materials to ram-up module efficiency. With an expected IRR of 8 percent solar is still one of the most attractive investments for home owners."

Suntech's monocyrystalline STP200S and STP195S - 24/Ad+ modules are an ideal choice for the residential sector due to their compact form factor of 62.2 x 31.8 x 1.4 inches (1580 x 808 x 35 mm). The improved module conversion efficiency of up to 15.7 percent ensures an even higher power output for each system owner. The modules also offer an industry leading weak light performance with an efficiency of 95.5 percent at 200/ msquared well above the industry standard.

The products also offer Suntech's industry-leading 25-year power output warranty that warrants 6.7% more power than the standard industry warranty. In addition, the panels feature 0/+5% positive power tolerance and have been built to withstand all weather conditions, including 3.800 Pascal wind load and 5.400 Pascal snow loads, well above IEC standard requirements
