Saint-Gobain recently announced the availability of SG Solar Suneka®, an aluminum-framed photovoltaic module from its subsidiary Saint-Gobain Solar. The new product expands Saint-Gobain Solar’s product offering in North America.

Saint-Gobain Solar reportedly observed the industry’s need for an adaptable, high-performance solar system and engineered Suneka in a variety of sizes, wattages, and cell types with a range of mounting systems suitable for single- and multi-family residential applications, as well as commercial and industrial applications.

“Suneka is the answer to architects and builders seeking an integrated solar roof system that delivers high performance, versatility and durability,” said Alain Garnier, director of Saint-Gobain Solar North America. “Suneka will meet the expectations of a growing number of homeowners and business owners who want to invest in and take energy-saving measures.”

Composed of high-transmission solar glass, Suneka reportedly offers customers the flexibility to choose from three distinct models based on their efficiency goals. The 60-cell monocrystalline and 60-cell polycrystalline models offer a 200-240 Wp power range and provide efficiency up to 14.75%. The 72-cell monocrystalline model offers a power range of 185-190 Wp and up to 14.88% efficiency.
