Five-years after starting production of its copper-indium-sulfide (CIS) thin-film solar modules, Berlin-based Sulfurcell plans to set-up a North American network of system integrators and installers. As with the perceived consumer concerns for more aesthetic looking PV modules, Sulfurcell believes its ‘black-tile aesthetics’ will prove popular in that market. Sulfurcell will be offering framed, frameless, and roof-integrated modules.
“We’re confident Sulfurcell’s industry-leading thin-film modules will enjoy broad adoption in the American market,” said Nikolaus Meyer, CEO of Sulfurcell. “Sulfurcell’s thin-film modules combine black-tile aesthetics and high performance within a wide range of temperatures making them ideal for building integrated, residential and commercial rooftop applications.”
Sulfurcell’s North American operations will be run out of new offices in Los Angeles, California. The company has claimed that it has sold over 100,000 modules, which would make it one of the three largest manufacturers of CIS/CIGS-based thin-film producers in the world.
