SunPower announces industry’s most powerful solar roof tile

America’s SunPower announced the company’s new T5 Solar Roof Tile on May 27, and is now the industry-leading solar roof tile with about double the energy generated per square meter over flat rooftop tiles.

The T5 Roof Tile is a unique offering in the solar photovoltaic (PV) industry. Other roof tiles remain flat on commercial rooftops, while the T5 is tilted at a five-degree angle. The T5 is non-penetrating, and is a combined solar panel, frame, and mounting system in one prefabricated unit. The T5 uses SunPower’s 96-cell solar panels, and the recently announced SunPower 315 Solar Panel. The all-in-one mounting system is made from an engineered glass-filled polymer that is non-reactive, so the array does not require grounding, which makes it easier and faster to install. T5 Roof Tiles interlock together and are aerodynamically designed for wind resistance and secure installation. The T5 can be adapted to almost any flat or low-slope rooftop.

The T5 Roof Tile was developed with the assistance of the US Department of Energy (DOE) through its Solar America Initiative program. It was developed within two years of receiving DOE funding. The T5 Roof Tile is currently available in the US and will be available in Europe by the third quarter this year.

SunPower Corp. is a Silicon Valley-based manufacturer of high-performance solar electric systems worldwide for residential, commercial, and utility-scale power plant customers. The company has offices and solar power plants in North America, Europe, and Asia, with more than 500 solar power systems installed, totaling more than 400 MW of annual electricity generation. It is listed on the NASDAQ as SPWRA and SPWRB. SPWRA was up 4.07% on May 27 trading day, closing at $28.16. SPWRB was up 5.01% and closed at $24.94 on the same day.
