Go Thin!

While solar installations can offer many benefits by reduceing GHG emissions and lowering electricity costs, the panels themselves tend to be quite heavy and can dramatically alter the look of a facility when installed. Enter thin film solar, which offers the same renewable properties as normal panels but are typically only about a quarter of an inch thick and weigh dramatically less – meaning they can be installed on a fragile roof. Thin films can also be installed in new places and integrate into the architecture, preserving the look of your building while providing clean energy.
