The article describes the influence of climate conditions on a solar module consisting of photovoltaic (PV) cells with a copper contact grid. The technological sequence of formation of copper contact grid on the surface of silicon heterojunction solar cell is described. The article compares the traditional method of creating a contact grid using screen printing silver paste and an alternative method using electrochemical deposition of copper. The results of tests determining the resistance of solar cells to mechanical damage are shown. It is determined that the use of galvanized copper mesh allows reducing the degradation of the electrical parameters by 10%. It is shown that the solar modules, consisting of solar cells with a copper contact grid, successfully pass climatic tests.
