POWERFILM Flexible Solar Panels

PowerFilm® integrated solar panels (thin film on plastic) are developed and manufactured with a proprietary roll process, and they are truly rollable, unlike other thin film technologies that are only somewhat flexible. PowerFilm solar panels are all monolithically integrated, which eliminates the need for damage-prone manual connections of individual solar cells.

PowerFilm is made of silicon, a natural resource in abundant supply. PowerFilm is cadmium-free, unlike some other solar technologies, and performs well in diverse environments including hot sun, and does not suffer from wasted over-voltage.

  • Panel Type: Flexible thin film
  • Panel Material: Amorphous silicon
  • Frame Material: Polyimide substrate, as thin as 1 mil (0.025mm)
  • Output Wiring: Two-wire delphi
  • Mounting Hardware: Corner grommets
