The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a patent (US 2013 – 8,372,226)to SolarPower Restoration System based on the company's proprietary SolarSeal Technologies™, titled "Elastomeric waterproofing and weatherproofing photovoltaic finishing method and system" The patent filed by company founder Michael Gumm and part of the SolarSeal Technology portfolio of patents and pending patents combines high performance elastomeric roof coatings with the latest flexible thin film photovoltaics, creating new sustainable and renewable solar powered roof surface.


SolarSeal Technologies solves the common problem of photovoltaic modules service life outlasting existing roof systems the PV modules are installed on.

SolarSeal Technologies installs a photovoltaic array directly over any existing roof system and synchronizes the roof service life with the longer performance life of the photovoltaic modules.

The SolarSeal PV Roof System™ applies thin film or crystalline photovoltaics directly to either new or existing asphalt built-up smooth and granule surfaced 90-pound cap sheet roofing, including SBS and APP modified bitumen roof systems.

SolarSeal PV Roof Systems™ works over all single-ply roof membranes (EPDM, PVC, TPO, and Hypalon) and is the only universal solution designed to apply thin film and crystalline photovoltaics directly onto any roof substrate, creating a monolithic warrantable waterproof photovoltaic roof surface.

SolarPower Restoration Systems has developed this technology and will license it for roofing applications.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
