Sunflare is announcing new residential shingles at the 2018 Solar Power International show at booth #2482. Sunflare roof-integrated solar has the potential to quickly replace traditional shingles and tiles as the roof covering of choice for homeowners.
Sunflare created new patent-pending residential roof shingles with snap-together electrical connectors, and easy, standard-roofing installation methods, with 100% waterproofing.
Similar to Sunflare’s larger modules, the shingles are CIGS solar cells encapsulated in durable, lightweight polymer sheets. Each cell has a bypass diode--that means only the cell that is shaded becomes inactive in a shadow.
As far as the heat goes, the Sunflare panel has a temperature coefficient of -.31% per 1 degree Celsius. Silicon runs -.45 per 1 degree Celsius.
The solar shingles will 25-year linear production warranty, 25-year workmanship warranty, and 25-year warranty on the optimizer.
The shingle prototype will debut at the Solar Power International show at the Sunflare booth #2482.
