Solyndra manufactures and supplies solar photovoltaic systems. These solar photovoltaic systems have been specifically designed for commercial rooftops. Solar photovoltaic systems are marketed in the company name and are supplied with components such as mounting hardware and panels. The mounting hardware can be used in instances, when the solar photovoltaic system needs to be installed on low slope rooftops. Solar photovoltaic systems from Solyndra function by converting maximum amount of available sunlight that falls on the rooftop into electricity.
Solyndra solar photovoltaic systems incorporate cylindrical solar modules that are capable of capturing the sunlight. The 360 degree photovoltaic surface of the system converts this available sunlight to electricity. Panels of the Solyndra solar photovoltaic system provide optimal performance, when these panels are fixed horizontally and arranged closely. These panels also facilitate wind to blow through them. The lightweight design of the Solyndra solar photovoltaic system enables easy installation of the system on different rooftop types. These photovoltaic systems can be installed cost effectively. The cost effective installation is mainly due to copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) modules and solar thin-film technology that have been incorporated, while designing Solyndra photovoltaic systems. These photovoltaic systems can be fixed onto commercial rooftops without the aid of roof attachments, ballasts and roof penetrations.
