Flexible Lightweight Solar by SoloPower


Today SoloPower announced the launch of its inaugural thin-film, CIGS-based solar product called SFX1-i.  The company says SFX1-i is lightweight and flexible, while other outlets, such as Greentech Media, report that the modules have an efficiency of 10.5 to 11 percent. 

SoloPower's SFX1-i module, an 80-watt module weighing five pounds, is the first of several products in the company's flexible solar product line. 

Future products include SFX1-i3, a 260-watt module weighing 13 pounds, and SFX2, a 170-watt module weighing eight pounds.

The solar modules are made in a "low-capital," roll-to-roll manufacturing process that SoloPower thinks will provide value to customers looking for an approachable solar solution.  The product is slated for general availability in the second half of 2010.

If you're on the West Coast and want to catch a glimpse of SFX1-i, make sure to visit the Shoals Technologies Group and eIQ Energy booths at InterSolar in San Francisco, July 13-15, 2010.

    According to the California Solar Initiative, SoloPower has failed to get even one customer to use their modules so far (there are zero reservations with SoloPower modules).

    Why is no one buying? Are they overpriced?
