3S Swiss Solar Systems MegaSlate Tech Integrates Solar Thermal
24 November 2009

3S Swiss Solar Systems says its MegaSlate solar photovoltaic roofing system has been enhanced to also function as a solar hot water application. The company partnered with H&S Solar to develop the new technology. These frameless photovoltaic and heating modules enable architects and planners to design large-surface, uniform solar roofing systems, the company says. The system is well-suited for new construction and property-renovation projects, 3S adds.

The modules are certified by TÜV Rheinland and tested for resistance to wind, hail, heavy snow-loading, rain impermeability and fire safety. The company provides a performance guarantee of 90% of minimum output for 10 years and 80% of minimum output for 20 years.
