tenKsolar Announces General Availability of Industry Leading Rooftop RAIS® XT Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Solution

RAIS XT delivers unmatched value and performance

MINNEAPOLIS, May 22, 2013 -- tenKsolar® (tenK) announced today general availability of its polycrystalline silicon 410W RAIS® XT solar photovoltaic (PV) system with industry leading warranty, performance and cost of energy.


"We have worked to address every shortcoming of commercial scale rooftop solar," said tenK Founder and CTO Dallas Meyer . "Generating up to 44% more energy per roof than typical rooftop solar systems, the RAIS XT delivers unmatched value and performance."

RAIS XT is based on tenK's cell-optimized photovoltaic (PV) architecture, which removes the inherent limitations of serial strings found in conventional solar modules. "Failure modes and risks of conventional solar modules including hot spots, potential induced degradation and high voltage arcs are rendered impossible with tenK's technology," continued Meyer. "And with our newly published energy production study, the data clearly backs up the tenK advantage."

tenKsolar has published a long term energy production survey (available at tenKsolar.com) for locations installed with current RAIS PV systems around the US demonstrating 25% to over 30% more energy production per rated watt versus conventional solar arrays in the same location. In addition, tenK offers world-class reliability advantages due to cell independence inside the module. RAIS XT provides leading buyer protection with the industry's best warranty - guaranteeing annual performance degradation of 0.2% or less per year after the first year and through year 25.

Said Joel Cannon , CEO of tenKsolar, "With RAIS XT, we deliver industry leading performance, safety and energy density at the most competitive energy cost. This fact is evident by having shipped systems and booked orders in Europe, Central America and across the USA."

About tenKsolar: tenKsolar designs, manufactures and markets high efficiency and highly reliable photovoltaic solutions based on its proprietary RAIS module technology. The company offers complete, turnkey commercial rooftop solar PV arrays providing the solar industry's lowest energy costs, low-voltage safety and low installation cost.

3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape is a family of single coated, pressure sensitive adhesive tapes designed for difficult sealing applications. The backing on this tape is an ionomer film that is very tough yet flexible and abrasion resistant. The very soft and thick acrylic adhesive has excellent sealing properties and good outdoor durability. This single coated tape is designed to seal over an existing joint, seam, or penetration. The adhesive is designed to adhere well to the ionomer film so that overlapping tape joints can be made while maintaining a strong seal. 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape - instant sealing that rolls on fast and looks good.
