Solaria Corporation, a global provider of solar module products and technologies, has entered into a strategic cooperation agreement with Jiangsu Seraphim Solar. Pursuant to the agreement, both companies will work together to develop advanced photovoltaic manufacturing technologies and implement these technologies for mass production.
“Key energy industry players recognize the technology advancements that Solaria has commercialized with its high performance PowerXT module series and its solar shingling products,” said Solaria CEO Suvi Sharma. “Seraphim is the ideal partner for the joint development of new solar technologies and helping us realize those technologies into mass production. Through economies of scale, we expect to not only bring down the overall cost of the module itself, but also enhance the performance and profitability of solar power systems.”
“Seraphim is thrilled to reach such collaboration agreement with Solaria, which will further strengthen Seraphim’s leadership position for high-efficiency modules globally,” said Polaris Li, CEO of Jiangsu Seraphim Solar. “This agreement is a strong commitment from both parties to bring shingling technology to full mass production and make it a mainstream technology for the solar industry.”
Solaria’s PowerXT module series and its solar shingling products utilizes advanced cell interconnect and module production processes to create a new standard in PV module efficiency and reduction in system costs. Providing labor savings on racking and system components, Solaria’s PowerXT module series and its solar shingling products significantly boost power generation while eliminating reliability challenges that can reduce conventional PV modules’ long-term performance. This ensures that solar installers maximize power deployment on customer roofs – enabling them to install attractive, cost-effective distributed power plants that accelerate payback period and profitability.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
