“The commercial rooftops of Europe are an immense opportunity for the generation of solar electricity and are of growing importance with favorable incentive support in many countries,” said CEO/founder Chris Gronet. “This move strengthens our ability to serve our customers in the region and allows us to play a greater role in the evolution of the European energy market toward a more sustainable future.”

Solyndra says its copper-indium-gallium-(di)selenide (CIGS) thin-film PV panels (which feature a unique cylinidrical-module design) are fully certified for European solar installations and have received independently validated product verification and performance testing from multiple sources, including IEC, GSE, and Fraunhofer ISE.
