PowerPly Self Adhesive Solar Panels – peel off the backing and stick to your roof

solarroof  PowerPly Self Adhesive Solar Panels – peel off the backing and stick to your roof


Lumeta™ PowerPly™. Seamless integration, lower installation cost and dramatic time savings.

Lumeta™ utilizes monocrystalline cells to maximize energy output per roof area, and a standard EVA based cell encapsulation process. The fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) substrate in the PowerPly™ design provides needed rigidity to the module, replacing the TPT™ (Tedlar®/ Polyester /Tedlar®) flexible substrate used in traditional modules. This high efficiency technology is enhanced by Lumeta’s adhesive backing material, which eliminates the need for rack mounting systems, yielding seamless integration with the roof. The adherence properties of this adhesive material exceed all wind uplift requirements for roof mounted modules, and its chemical composition is compatible with most roofing surfaces. This direct roof application reduces installation time by about 50% and Balance of System (BOS) costs by up to 70%.

PowerPly’s front sheet of DuPont™ fluoropolymer and FRP substrate yield a module that is both light weight and durable. At only 1.8 lbs/sq ft (8.8 kgs/sq meter), Lumeta™ PowerPly™ is 50% lighter than traditional rack mounted and ballasted systems. The low, 0.4 in (1 cm) height module also minimizes potential water ponding issues.

Dell Builds Solar Trees For Parking Lot

solar panel

Computer technology is always about being one step ahead of competitors. Information technology moves faster than light it seems, and by the time your new computer arrives at your doorstep, it is already out of date. Dell, whose computers can be found in most offices, homes, and campuses across the country, has been doing its best to stay ahead of the curve.

Proving it is both environmentally friendly and hip to the trends of popular culture, Dell has just finished installing a grove of solar trees at its Corporate headquarters in Round Rock, Texas.
