Solar Ovonic is the world leader in thin-film technologies. It's a
company with years of experience in photovoltaics and is backed by a
U.S. technology leader, Energy Conversion Devices, which holds 350
U.S. patents and 800 foreign patents. UNI-SOLAR technology has
proven itself over decades under the most extreme conditions
imaginable, including satellites, ocean buoys and military
applications. They offer a proven product, a proven technology, from
a proven company.
The foundation of all UNI-SOLAR products is
their unique Triple Junction amorphous silicon solar cell. Amorphous
construction allows lower costs, and a flexible substrata with
DuPont Tefzel glazing creates a flexible, unbreakable product. Each
cell is composed of three semiconductor junctions stacked on top of
each other. Each layer is tuned for increased sensitivity to
specific light frequencies. The bottom cell absorbs red light, the
middle cell absorbs green light and the top cell absorbs blue light.
This spectrum splitting capability delivers higher efficiency than
any other amorphous silicon products.

UNI-SOLARŽ framed panels are for permanent, fixed position
mounting with optimum tilt, wind resistance, and exposure to
sunlight. The large framed panels are often used as building blocks
in photovoltaic arrays, which can be assembled to meet virtually any
Framed modules come in a variety of different sizes the most
commonly used are the US-64, the ES-62T and ES-124, if you need
specific information on other sized modules please give us a call or
UNI-SOLAR offers to different solutions for building integrated
photovoltaics. The PVL-series and the SHR-series Solar Shingles.
PVL-series is a field-applied flexible laminate for standing-seam
steel roofs. It's commonly referred to as "peel 'n stick" solar,
since that's exactly how it's installed. It fits 16" wide roof pans,
and comes in various lengths and wattages. Installation must be
supervised by a certified installer, usually your dealer, and new
installation, before the metal roof pans go up on the roof, is
greatly preferred. Roofing pans must use GalvalumeŽ brand finish.
Electrical connections are usually at the top, and are hidden and
protected under the flashing. DC Power Systems can arrange for
installation and/or for certified installer training.
The SHR-series is a shingle product designed to interweave with
conventional composition asphalt shingles. Available in a single
size at 17 watts, each shingle is 86.4" (7.2 feet) long, with a
normal 5" of tab exposure at the bottom, just like asphalt shingles.
They're nailed or stapled in place, just like regular shingles, and
will interweave with standard asphalt composition shingles
perfectly. Wiring is dropped into the attic space at the upper
corner of the shingle (where it's protected by three layers of
shingles above it). All wiring is done in the dry, protected attic
space. These shingles have been honored with the Popular Science
Grand Award, "Best of What's New," and with Discover magazine's
"Technological Innovation Award."
