Solyndra Inc. has signed a new long-term framework agreement with alwitra GmbH & Co., a supplier of reflective roofing systems based in Trier, Germany. The solar panels for this agreement will be manufactured at Solyndra's facilities in Fremont, Calif., and Milpitas, Calif.
Solyndra's cylindrical, thin-film PV systems are designed to generate more electricity on an annual basis from typical low-slope commercial rooftops, while providing lower installation costs than conventional flat-panel PV technologies, the company says. When installed together with a reflective roofing membrane, electricity produced is optimized and total installation cost is reduced.
