SunLink Teams With Nanosolar

Oct 21 2009 | 1:50pm ET

California’s SunLink Corporation, a provider of solar module mounting solutions, has inked a strategic supply agreement with thin-film photovoltaic manufacturer Nanosolar, Inc.

Under the terms of the contract, SunLink will develop and supply a custom, flat roof system for mounting Nanosolar utility panels.

The roof mount system was initially developed as part of a U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) Solar American Initiative award.

The companies say the solution eliminates the need for installation tools, allowing for rapid on-site assembly. Specifically designed to reduce the amount of overall materials used, as well as to employ durable recycled materials, the system is also low cost.

“This partnership is a testament to the growing interest in commercial thin-film applications across the industry,” said Christopher Tilley, SunLink CEO, in a statement. “We’re excited to team with a forward-thinking leader in technology development such as Nanosolar to pioneer our thin-film product line and to further our engineering milestones.”

The SunLink thin-film mounting product for Nanosolar will be available for commercial sale in early 2010.
