By Design - Rugged, Yet Sleek
Sunpreme modules double glass construction are strong enough to withstand hurricane force winds with superior salt spray and sand erosion, making it rugged enough for environments such as tropics, deserts, and even Antarctica – locations not normally well suited for conventional panels. Yet, with a ultra-thin profile of 4-6mm without a frame or unsightly plastic back sheet, our modules are attractive enough to display in prominent structures like carports, terraces, and residential rooftops.
Setting the Benchmark in Real World Energy Production
Sunpreme panels generates more energy, up to 100% AC output of the DC STC rating vs. 80-85% from a conventional panel. This is achieved with the lowest thermal degradation coefficient, zero light induced degradation, and backside boost. The result is reflected in >10% greater energy yield KWh than what is predicted by PVSyst modelling and the lowest LCOE. In recognition to our panels’ industry leading performance, The Principal Solar Institute awarded Sunpreme 7 out of top 10 spots in their survey of thin film panels.
Certified Reliable, Insurance Backed
Independent testing centers have certified to IEC, UL, and other international standards. In fact, Sunpreme panels exceed 3x industry standards with extended reliability tests such as damp heat cycling for 3000 hours and PID free at 250 hours. Giving further assurance, all panels are backed with a 25 year performance warranty backed by a leading European insurance company, thereby avoiding any concerns with typical company balance-sheet funded warranty claims.
