With the benefit of two years of data from the largest Uni-Solar triple-junction amorphous silicon, photovoltaic power system currently operating near Bakersfield, CA, this paper provides an in-depth analysis of "real world" performance for this technology. This 500 kW (ac) system has been consistently performing, meeting or exceeding its design goals. The performance data from this large-scale installation affirms and validates similar data that have been gathered over time from smaller systems and proves that this thin film PV technology can be successfully used in power generating plants on this scale, with consistent performance.
