Abstract

See full text

By providing a non-contact means and/or a non-contact space between electric connecting members and an underlaying material and/or a substrate material and/or a rear material, the temporal degradation of a solar cell module can be prevented which is caused by a contact between the electric connecting members for the module and the underlaying material and/or the substrate material and/or the rear material.
