Solyndra to Supply Solar Panels to Germany’s alwitra
Solyndra, manufacturer of cylindrical PV solar panel systems, signs framework agreement with alwitra, Germany's leading manufacturer of roofing systems
Solyndra, a manufacturer of innovative cylindrical photovoltaic (PV) solar panel systems for commercial rooftops, announced it has signed a new long term framework agreement with alwitra & Co., a leading supplier of well-engineered roofing systems, based in Trier, Germany. The solar panels for this agreement will be manufactured at Solyndra facilities in Fremont and Milpitas, CA.
"We are excited to announce this agreement with alwitra, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of innovative roofing systems. With alwitra’s global presence and their award-winning line of highly reflective Evalon roofing membranes, this agreement builds on the benefits of Solyndra PV installations on reflective commercial rooftops and will expand our footprint in the important roofing channel,” says Chris Gronet, Solyndra CEO and founder.
"The Solyndra system is the best we’ve found in terms of non-penetrating wind performance, energy production per roof, rooftop loading, and installation cost and builds on our 10 years of success in solar with our building-integrated EVALON Solar system,” states Stefan Rehlinger, Managing Director of alwitra.
Solyndra cylindrical, thin film PV solar panel systems are designed to generate more electricity on an annual basis from typical low-slope commercial rooftops, while providing much lower installation costs than conventional flat panel PV solar panel technologies. When installed together with a reflective roofing membrane, electricity produced by Solyndra solar panel systems is optimized and total installation cost is reduced.
