Solar Frontier's CIS Modules Selected For 26 MW Project In North Carolina, U.S.A.

CIS real-world performance and manufacturing excellence gaining recognition in Americas

Tokyo, September 1, 2015 - Solar Frontier, the worlds largest CIS solar energy solutions provider, announced today that it will supply its advanced solar module technology, CIS, for a 26 MW project located near Raleigh, North Carolina, U.S.A.


Solar Frontier signed the module supply agreement with a California-based solar equipment supplier and initiated the first of a series of shipments in late August. The project will be constructed by Vaughn Industries, a highly skilled team of full service electrical contractor specialists (including power transmission and distribution, substation and renewable energy projects).

Charles Pimentel, COO of Solar Frontier Americas, commented, "Solar Frontier is pleased to add this project to our growing footprint in the Americas and, as we expand our presence in the market, to add Vaughn Industries to our expanding network of trusted national construction leaders."

"Solar Frontier is a company whose product we recognize and value for its quality production and high-performance in the field," said Tim Vaughn, CEO of Vaughn Industries, LLC.

A world leader in manufacturing excellence, Solar Frontiers fully automated state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities are designed to provide customers with the highest level of quality. The companys advanced CIS technology also generates higher energy yield (kilowatt-hours per kilowatt peak) in real-world environments than conventional crystalline silicon technologies. As a result, Solar Frontiers projects have increasingly gained the attention of investors and project developers across the Americas.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
