Portable flexible PV systems for off-grid, residential applications

US startup New Use Energy Solutions has launched a new line of portable PV systems built with a module technology relying on Sunpower’s solar cells. The modules are assembled in the system via a custom vinyl tarp. This is a new line of portable frameless solar PV panels for off-grid and residential applications, which are 30% lighter than traditional monocrystalline solar panels and easy to fold, carry and stow.


Adhering multiple modules to a custom vinyl tarp allows the user to reconfigure the modules strings to accommodate 12, 24 & 48V off-grid systems all the way up to residential type all-in-one inverters that require over 120 Vdc to charge batteries.
