meeco pioneers sales of CIS solar modules in Paraguay

First shipment of Würth CIS modules available as from October 1st

Zug/Asunción. On October 1st, The meeco Group's subsidiary, meeco América Latina S.A., will officially introduce the first German made CIS (Copper Gallium Selenide) photovoltaic (PV) modules in the Paraguayan market. The first container of these advanced technology modules is expected to arrive in Paraguay this week. Given their exceptional price-performance ratio, meeco América Latina is aiming to sell 150 kWp of CIS modules as part of off-grid systems until the end of the year.


Compared to polycrystalline modules, CIS modules offer a higher shadow resistance and more stability under high temperatures, reaching an 86.1 percent efficiency rate at 40 degrees Celsius environment temperature (heating up the module to 70 degrees Celsius), compared with 79.9 percent for polycrystalline modules. CIS technology also presents best behavior under low light and low angle irradiation as under diffuse light conditions. In addition, the frames on these German made CIS modules offer a better protection of the edges and corners ensuring a safer transport and mounting on roofs or pillars. Finally, meeco offers this top-end German technology for unmatchable prices in Paraguay.

"During the past years, the interest in solar solutions has continuously grown in Paraguay, and sun2flow solar-driven water pumping systems are already widespread," explains Dr. Oliver Jann, Director of meeco América Latina. "Since we presented CIS modules at the 39th Expo Rodeo Trébol last month, we have received dozens of requests for these modules. The demand for solar solutions in Paraguay is becoming more diversified and we are ready to meet it," adds Dr. Jann.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
