Westinghouse Solar 'plug-and-play' solar panels promise savings

California-based company Westinghouse solar has launched a new line of "plug-and-play" solar panels which it says promises significant savings for both residential and commercial installers.

"Instant Connect uses automated installation and has integrated racking and mounting requirements, and comes in a single package," Gary Mull, Westinghouse Solar vice president for sales and marketing, told EcoSeed in an interview.

Instant Connect panels are based on Westinghouse Solar's earlier efforts - from the industry's first solar panel to integrate racking directly into the solar panel itself in 2007, as well as the industry's first UL-approved AC solar panel in 2009.

Unlike conventional rooftop solar panel systems, which have many individual parts that must be sourced, carried to the roof, and manually assembled, the company's product could be attached directly to the rooftop without an underlying substructure.

Integrated racking and mounting reportedly allows for faster and easier rooftop installations and up to 80 percent in savings on parts and 50 percent on labor costs.

"With Instant Connect, Westinghouse Solar can reduce direct and indirect installation costs by over $0.25/watt, which has a much greater economic impact on customers than incremental efficiency or cell cost improvements," says Barry Cinnamon, Westinghouse Solar chief executive, in a press release.

The panels are now available for immediate shipping in North America, and will be available in other countries within the year. – N.P. Arboleda
