Fonon Introduces Line of Glass-to-Glass Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Modules

Next Generation American Made Modules to Debut at Intersolar North America on July 10-12 in San Francisco

Lake Mary, FL., July 2, 2012

The dual sided glass module (G2G) series will include a range of products featuring bifacial cells, framed and frameless construction, and optical tracking front sheets with micro lenses. G2G PV solar panels feature thinner tempered glass, which reduces the distance light travels, thereby increasing overall module efficiency 10 percent.

“The use of glass-to-glass technology in PV module encapsulation and fabrication is an example of how electricity costs can be hedged through innovation and technology rather than through financial tools, said a company spokesman.  The company’s investment in research and development will continue to bring the cost of solar to grid parity making it more economically viable in the US.”

G2G architecture provides dual sided protection of silicon materials from extreme weather conditions. Thinner glass ensures less heat, thermal stability, resistance to impact and elimination of micro fractures. G2G modules are expected to have a usable lifetime of 50 years without danger of mechanical damage or temperature and humidity-related delamination of the back sheet. The glass-to-glass lamination method with no multi-layer back sheet also reduces fire hazard and lessens the probability of mechanical damage over the lifetime of the module.

The highlight of the G2G series on display at Intersolar North America is the bifacial technology that will replace costly axis-based mechanical tracking systems with less expensive optical tracking panels while achieving the same efficiency gains. Also featured are five G2G products along with the  400 Watt series of PV modules in Booth 7029, conveniently located on the first level of Moscone Center in San Francisco. Company executives and product experts will be on hand to answer questions and exchange information.
