A multicrystalline wafer from Rene Sola Ltd. promises to improve solar cell efficiency.

The company said the Virtus Wafer, which will be in pilot production in the first half of 2011, offers a cell conversion efficiency rate of 17.5%, more than 1% higher than the industry standard.

Mr. Xianshou Li, Rene Sola's chief executive officer, said the Virtus Wafer offers the relatively low production cost of a multicrystalline wafer and a conversion efficiency rate close to that of a monocrystalline wafer.
