DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions is supporting US PV installer Astrum Solar on product specifications for modules that improve efficiency and system lifetimes, ultimately lowering costs and increasing investment returns.
DuPont said that it would be advising the installer on specifications for materials used in the fabrication of PV modules, notably its own such as ‘Tedlar’ polyvinyl fluoride film-based backsheets.
The company would also advocate to Astrum Solar the best practice specifications as well as promote data transparency on materials used in modules, backed up with access to a suite of analytical tools for the installer to use as part of its product selection criteria or longer-term due diligence.
“This agreement will further ease the transition to solar power by increasing the overall value for homeowners,” said Astrum Solar Vice-President of Policy and Business Development Josh Goldberg. “DuPont’s unsurpassed expertise regarding materials specifications will ensure our customers always benefit from the most efficient, cost-effective system possible.”
