Rooftop Solar Revolution? Giga Solar Announces Successful Test Results

The results are from a groundbreaking project aiming to develop a suite of technologies that make the process of buying, installing, and connecting rooftop solar energy systems faster, easier, safer, and less expensive. The high-efficiency, crystalline-silicon, lightweight modules enable innovative, low-cost rooftop mounting methods. As they are glass-free and frameless, they can be flush-mounted directly onto the roof, avoiding the need for racking hardware, eliminating roof penetrations, and shortening the installation time. These benefits all contribute to lowering the cost of solar electricity. In addition to these benefits, the reduced module weight decreases transportation costs and improves ease of handling. The implications are highly significant in both developed and early stage markets – worldwide.
