Researchers at Case Western Reserve University are using a grant from the Department of Energy to test the durability of a newer solar panel design.

The design, PERC, is able to put out more energy than standard crystalline silicon modules, lowering the cost for solar projects. Now, the university wants to know how long this design can last in real world conditions.
