NEXT GENERATION ENERGY® RECEIVES ICC-SRCC OG-300 CERTIFICATION FOR SUN BANDIT® SOLAR PV WATER HEATING SYSTEM

-

LAFAYETTE, Colo. - December 7, 2015 - Sun Bandit® by Next Generation Energy® has reached new heights in setting new standards for solar water heating. Sun Bandit's patented micro-grid technology has defined a new category for solar water heating, influencing new Solar Rating Certification Corporation (ICC-SRCC) OG-100 and OG-300 standards. The result? A groundbreaking on-site energy storage solution with OG-300 certification for a revolutionary PV-based solar thermal water heating system.


The ICC-SRCC provides the only national certification program established solely for solar thermal products, with a purpose of developing and implementing national rating standards and certification programs for solar energy equipment. This milestone certification for Sun Bandit from ICC-SRCC marks a paradigm shift in the way solar energy is captured, stored, and used to heat water more dependably and affordably than ever before.

The OG-300 certified Sun Bandit solar water heating system features the world's first OG-100 solar PV water heating collector to generate and store energy as hot water. This certification may provide customers with additional financial incentives when they install a Sun Bandit system with OG-300 certification.

"Sun Bandit has redefined solar water heating from the ground up," said Dave Kreutzman, CEO of Next Generation Energy. "ICC-SRCC certification validates Sun Bandit technology and NGE® is excited to be leading the industry with an innovation so revolutionary that it is creating new opportunities for solar professionals and consumers to achieve clean energy independence."

Sun Bandit is simple to install and requires no net-meter or utility connection for installation and operation. By eliminating fluids, pump stations, overheating, leaks, stagnation, and freezing associated with traditional solar water heating systems, Sun Bandit makes on-site solar energy storage a practical, affordable reality for everyone.

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.
