Flexible Solar Benefits
Everyone is familiar with the mono or polysilicon glass solar modules that are on residential rooftops and large scale solar “farms”. In many applications, however, flexible thin film modules are the best choice, as they offer benefits that c-Si can’t match.
Can be used on structures and roofs that can’t support glass module installations
Can be used on curved roofs and surfaces
Great for high wind areas, as their flat installation does not increase the wind load
Lower Installation Costs
The lack of racking (and penetrations), and easy “peel and stick” installation lowers material and labor costs of installation.
Outperforms c-Si modules in partially shady conditions
Theft and Vandal Resistant
Virtually eliminates theft and vandalism of modules in high crime areas
Largely eliminates issues of damage from microcracks as a result of foot traffic or vibration, earthquake and hailstone resistant
