Reliable solar in a revolutionary format

Trusted technology just got a makeover

Lumeta’s modules package proven solar technology inside durable lightweight materials and use a trusted attachment technology. The Lumeta Lynx module differs from traditional glass-fronted silicon solar modules in a few ways:

  • The glass front sheet has been replaced by a durable fluoropolymer front sheet to reduce weight and heat

  • The back sheet has been replaced by semi-rigid FRP/Tedlar substrate to protect cells

  • An edge seal eliminates the need for a frame

  • The panel adheres to the roof using thermoplastic butyl adhesive, trusted by the roofing industry for decades-long performance, eliminating the need for racking

  • If service is needed, modules can be safely removed without damage to the underlying roof

Reliable

  • Tested to NREL’s rigorous Qualification Plus standards

  • Depends on tried-and-tested monocrystalline silicon cells

Robust

  • Undergoes real world tests designed by Black & Veatch

  • Made with materials tested for the toughest conditions

Proven

  • Field tested in a range of climates

  • Outperforming PVSyst projections since 2009

Durability

It’s critical to choose a reliable and robust module for your solar projects. Lumeta has designed its modules for the harshest conditions, and tested them to ensure they are tough enough to last the lifetime of the system.
  • Solar installers don’t spend most of their time on the roof working with the actual solar panels. Instead, a majority of their time is spent assembling, positioning, and attaching the racking systems that fix the solar panels in place.

  • About one out of every five residential solar systems have roofing problems caused by inexperienced solar installation companies—problems that will often lead to roof leaks over time.

  • Over three quarters (77.6%) of all [solar] employers cite difficulty finding candidates with any training specific to the position, and a similar number (77.9%) report difficulty finding candidates with any relevant work experience.

  • Construction productivity has been flat for decades… In manufacturing, by contrast, productivity has nearly doubled over the same period, and continuous improvement has been the norm.

  • It may take a year or two of heavy rain, but eventually an improperly installed rooftop solar mounting system will make itself known. … The costs of such a failure for the liable solar installer are more than financial.

  • There is no indication that the high levels of difficulty finding and hiring qualified solar workers seen today will lessen without some form of industry change.

  • As more companies enter the market for solar projects, competition intensifies—and profits narrow. … To maintain attractive margins, the best players will drive down the cost of building a plant faster than the industry average, allowing them to grow.
