Solar Energy UK: aleo solar GmbH presents new module with excellent weak light behaviour

While weak light reduces the efficiency of conventional monocrystalline or polycrystalline solar modules by three to five percent, aleo solar's new 300 Watt modules maintain the same level of efficiency even in diffuse or dim light.

Prenzlau/Berlin, Germany, 8th October 2014 – aleo solar GmbH will be unveiling its new 300 watt high-power module boasting improved weak light behaviour at the Solar Energy UK exhibition, taking place in Birmingham from 14th to 16th October 2014. Even with a very weak irradiation of 200 watts per square metre (W/m²), the aleo module is able to work at its full efficiency level of 18.3%. aleo solar GmbH took over the business and "aleo" brand from aleo solar AG in May this year to continue operations as a separate company with the majority of production and sales staff remaining in its employment, while aleo solar AG is currently in the process of being liquidated.


"Our new high-power modules should receive particular interest from countries like the United Kingdom, where a cloudy sky is more usual than in southern Europe, for example. Yields are consistently high even on cloudy days, and during morning and evening hours. We are therefore expecting strong demand for our modules from the UK," reports Günter Schulze, Managing Director of aleo solar GmbH. "The new aleo modules operate at full capacity even when the mounting angle is not ideal, making it very flexible to install."

While weak light reduces the efficiency of conventional monocrystalline or polycrystalline solar modules by three to five percent, aleo solar's new 300 Watt modules maintain the same level of efficiency even in diffuse or dim light. This is thanks to a combination of carefully selected components and state-of-the art solar cells: special cell connectors guide more light into the cells, while anti-reflection coated front glass and a highly transparent EVA film increase the luminous efficacy.

Thanks to their special characteristics, the modules generate roughly 20 percent more power over the same surface area than standard 250 watt modules, which also results in markedly reduced installation times.

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

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.
