SoloPower Displays CIGS PV Module Prototype in 3M Booth #377 at Solar Power International Conference

San Jose, Calif. – October 26, 2009-- SoloPower, a California-based manufacturer of thin-film solar photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules, today announced that a prototype of its flexible CIGS photovoltaic module will be on display at the 3M booth, #377, at the Solar Power International 2009 conference in Anaheim, California on October 27-29, 2009.

SoloPower worked with 3M to develop a flexible CIGS photovoltaic module that includes the 3M™ Ultra Barrier system, which is designed to provide protection against the elements for a long and reliable operating life in the field.

SoloPower’s flexible CIGS modules represent a breakthrough solar product. Because of their lighter weight, they will be deployable with lower installation costs, providing less expensive solar electricity for utility, commercial and industrial customers. SoloPower’s flexible modules will present new opportunities to large rooftop sites that glass-plate modules cannot service due to factors such as weight, high wind conditions, or roof penetrations.

SoloPower flexible CIGS modules are expected to be available for sale later in 2010.
