The roof-mounted solar kits include a 30-amp charge controller and all necessary hardware designed for fast and easy installation along with PV and battery cables with built-in fuse and mounting brackets.

The roof-mounted flexible solar panels offer a protective Ethylene Tetra Fluoro Ethylene (ETFE) top-layer which allows for better light transmittance, corrosion resistance, stain-resistance and weather resistance. The result strong performance over a wide temperature range while withstanding a variety of environmental conditions.

The panels also features unique mesh-grid technology that are highly efficient and can harvest up to 20% more energy even in low-light and shaded conditions when compared to a standard solar panel.
