CIGS Technology


01

An Innovator in Flexible Thin Film Solar Solutions
We are a leading manufacturer of thin-film (CIGS) solar solutions.A lightweight and portable solar power has been integrated into commercial, residential, utility-scale and government applications across the globe. With an innovative contributions are solutions for the emerging building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) market.

We redefined solar power: integrating solar solutions into building materials. The leading, high efficiency thin-film solar material allows us to partner with building industry leaders to create innovative, efficient, and effective products. Together, we are redefining how we build and power the world around us.

CIGS TECHNOLOGY  

02
CIGS Dissected
Co-evaporated CIGS on 0.001"-thick, 1km-long stainless steel foil is the basis of our proprietary roll-to-roll manufacturing process. This record setting method for flexible thin film photovoltaic cells results in lower material usage, lower manufacturing costs, and higher efficiency.

03

Best Absorption of Sunlight
CIGS is known for best sunlight absorption of all photovoltaic technologies. This property allows it to perform well in diffuse blue, evening red, and all light conditions in between.

The Problem with Tilt
Solar panels are typically mounted at a fixed tilt angle, representing a trade-off between summer and winter production. Adjacent rows of tilted panels must be spaced to avoid shading; this spacing, however, reduces the amount of power on the roof. Inadequate spacing can result in significant power losses (see below).
04

Flat Panel Advantage
PowerFLEX modules enable simpler, more versatile, and higher power density solutions for limited area roof-top installations. The result is higher net energy production per rooftop.

Installation Costs per Watt
Direct Costs
BOS | Installation Labor | Mounting Racks

When direct project costs are divided
by the 300-Watt module rating, the
PowerFLEX system presents a possible
30 to 40% cost advantage vs industry
standard modules.
Indirect Costs
Permits | Engineering & Design | Overhead

When indirect project costs are divided
by the total array power, PowerFLEXs
higher power density can result in a
comparative advantage of 40 to 50%
savings vs other technologies.
