~Renusol To Deliver Key Mounting Solution For Thin Film Panel Industry Leader Stion Corporation, Applicable In Residential, Commercial And Utility Scale Markets ~
Atlanta, GA—November 25, 2014— Renusol America, a leading provider of flat and pitched-roof solar PV mounting solutions with systems installed in 34 states across the US, today announces that it has been selected by Stion Corporation as a major provider of clamps for its Elevation 4 (STL-A) high performance thin film (CIGS) frameless modules. The new clamp, known as the Renusol VS Module Clamp, is PV mounting technology developed specifically for Stion's frameless, ‘glass on glass' thin film modules and includes a rubber insert to protect the glass while providing maximum holding power. The clamp meets Stion's requirements for performance and aesthetics and the UL 1703 fire rating standards, which become mandatory in California in January 2015.
"Stion is leading the way in bringing high-performance, thin film PV modules to the solar market, and we are pleased to partner with them and apply our technology to this fast-growing market segment," said Renusol America President Bart Leusink.
Both the Renusol VS Module Clamp (as well as the Renusol VS "one-size-fits-all" pitched roof mounting system) and Stion's Elevation 4 (STL-A) thin film module are made in the USA. The frameless Stion module is set between two pieces of glass, which eliminates the need for aluminum frames and increases system reliability and durability and improves fire resistance. The modules' design, black color, and virtually invisible cells provide smooth, uniform aesthetics. The Renusol VS Module Clamp is designed for use in both rooftop and ground mount systems.
"Renusol America is a leading innovator in solar mounting systems in the US solar industry," said Josh Moore, Director of Product Management for Stion. "Selecting them to provide these clamps means having the latest in mounting system solutions for our installer and project development partners."
