Flat roofing materials specialist, alwitra has entered into a long-term framework agreement with CIGS thin film supplier, Solyndra. Although no details were given to the possible megawatt levels or time-span of the agreement, the partnership would seem obvious, considering alwitra’s history and innovations in the reflective ‘Evalon’ roofing membrane market and its use of flexible thin film substrates for flat roof applications.
“With alwitra’s global presence and their award-winning line of highly reflective Evalon roofing membranes, this agreement builds on the benefits of Solyndra PV installations on reflective commercial rooftops and will expand our footprint in the important roofing channel,” noted Chris Gronet, Solyndra CEO and founder.
“The Solyndra system is the best we’ve found in terms of non-penetrating wind performance, energy production per roof, rooftop loading, and installation cost and builds on our 10 years of success in solar with our building-integrated Evalon Solar system,” commented Joachim Gussner, alwitra’s President.
It is assumed that alwitra will add Solyndra’s unique solar system to its product offerings, rather than replacement for its Evalon Solar substrates.
