Abstract : The patent describes a method of mounting solar cells in an array in which the cells are arranged on thermally conductive but electrically insulative wafer and prominences so that they overlap each other in a shingled structure but their bottom surfaces are supported and remain parallel to the top surface of the mounting wafer. The array structure permits series wiring of the cells and provides a rugged structure having a thermally conductive path from the solar cells through the mounting elements.
