Jacobs Hall is the brand new home of the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation at the College of Engineering of the University of California, Berkeley. The building should the values of the institution embody “a place of discovery, a place of connections and a place is learned on the design innovation based on practical design innovation” Now it is also equipped with a modern bifacial solar system The advanced solar installation with.. Sunpreme bifacial PV modules is more than just an instrument, with which the current cost of the institution can be reduced; it is an environmentally friendly measure environmental benefits and opened the Institute the way for LEED certification, one of the highest certifications for sustainable building.
The roof system was added in the first quarter 2016 in order and is the largest solar installation on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley. Sunpreme offers a modern bifacial technology in which to record and process the PV modules light from both sides, whereby the energy yield (kWh per kWp) is increased. The technology is also ideal for extreme and difficult environmental conditions. This GxB310 double glass modules are equipped with 60 cells with an efficiency of 21.5% and were of a high reliability optimized: due to its frameless construction, no grounding is required, is the temperature coefficient -0.28% / C and the low light performance is very good ,
“We decided due to the double glass construction, proven product reliability and outstanding aesthetics for Sunpreme bifacial PV modules. Sunpreme has proven innovative and quality products and its professional customer service as a reliable partner, “said Andrew Birch, Chief Executive Officer, Sungevity.
“We at Sunpreme are proud to be working as a trendsetter in the solar power market in sophisticated urban environments with Sungevity and the University of California, Berkeley. We are at the forefront of a transformation in which we would like, get solar installations with a purely functional feature to artistic rooftop systems designs that provide the functional beauty. Our symmetrical double-glazed modules are, even if you look at them from below, visually appealing, while providing an optimized PV power by the solar radiation is used from all directions, “said Ashok K. Sinha, chairman and CEO of Sunpreme.” Our offer consists of a foundation of construction of integrated, long-lasting reliability, it is the leading performance our proprietary thin-film hybrid cell technology and rounded it is by the attractive cost structure, which is achieved through an intelligent, lean manufacturing process which makes the Moore’s law advantage that already in could be observed of the LCD flat panel industry, “adds Sinha.
“It was a privilege to work with Sungevity in providing modern Sunpreme bifacial PV modules to Jacobs Hall building of the University of California, Berkeley for us. We congratulate them on their uncompromising pursuit of high quality standards and for this milestone. It is an extremely rewarding to be able to make significant savings and at the same time inspired by the great potential of solar power student, “said Surinder S. Bedi, Executive Vice President for Global Quality & Reliability, System Products and Market Development at Sunpreme.” Our customers rely on advanced technology and financial viability for the next 30 years or more. by focusing on advanced and intelligent technologies, we can work together with others and an outstanding system performance, solid product reliability and lifetime income with one of the best warranties in the industry under proof filters. We look forward to continue to provide first-class services to our customers, “adds Bedi.
