Abstract : The patent relates to the use of a metallized wafer between the solar cells and the metal mounting chassis, which wafer is a good heat conductor and an electrical insulator, the use of metallic, electrically conductive solders between the solar cells and the wafer and between the wafer and the mounting panel, and the use of a metallized tape to cover the non-active parts of the cell array and the mounting panel, the tape being non-absorptive to incoming solar radiation but transmissive to infrared energy (heat) arising in the solar cell array.
