SunLink Announces Thin-Film Solar Module Mounting Solution for Nanosolar
Developed as part of the largest single Solar America Initiative award by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Nanosolar SunLink roof mount system is an innovative, cost-effective solution, featuring:
- Easy, fast installation: A simple three-step process (slide-in blocks, rotate-down links, click-in panels) eliminates the need for installation tools and results in rapid on-site assembly.
- Cost savings: Specifically designed to reduce the amount of overall materials used, as well as to employ durable recycled materials, the system is available at extremely low cost.
- Roof-friendly design: The lightweight, low-tilt system requires no penetrations or additional ballast on many flat roofs.
As with all SunLink mounting systems, the Nanosolar SunLink solution is optimally designed and engineered through sophisticated computer simulations, as well as extensive wind-tunnel tests to analyze the behavior of wind on and around commercial rooftops.
“This partnership is a testament to the growing interest in commercial thin-film applications across the industry,” said Christopher Tilley, CEO, SunLink. “We’re excited to team with a forward-thinking leader in technology development such as Nanosolar to pioneer our thin-film product line and to further our engineering milestones,” said Brian Sager, Co-Founder and Vice President Corporate Development, Nanosolar Inc. “The system combines the Nanosolar Utility Panel’s low cost and significant balance of system advantages with SunLink’s proven mounting system design and experience to create an easy and fast-to-install solution. We look forward to working with our strategic partners to implement this system on rooftops in the U.S. and worldwide.”
The SunLink thin-film mounting product for Nanosolar will be available for commercial sale in early 2010.
