Sunman eArc Lightweight Solar Panels

As featured in ABC News - Now 14% owned by the Clean Energy Finance Corporation.

eArc solar panels are the only lightweight solar panels approved for grid connect on buildings which means they have passed the same testing criteria as traditional solar panels.

Tougher, lighter, thinner and more durable

    eArche lightweight solar panels are much thinner and lighter to conventional solar panels       eArche thin lightweight solar panels have a tough top layer    

  • Cutting edge technology - glass fibre-reinforced composite polymers similar to aircraft windows
  • Light - 175W frameless is 3kg
  • Thin - 2mm
  • Tough - Hail tested with ice stones of 35mm diameter and 200g mass at 39.5m per sec​
  • Strong - rated 2400 pascals for wind and 2400 pascals for load
  • Durable - ​10 year product warranty for building and 5 years for mobile application
  • Output - Efficient monocrystalline cells, 25 year performance guarantee
  • The only lightweight solar panel with Clean Energy Council (CEC) Accreditation (SMA and SMD Series)

​Development of the new waterproof composite polymers and panel structure was accelerated by funding of $3.3M from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to achieve the same durability as conventional solar panels.

eArc panels have been installed on the world’s first solar powered train in Byron Bay and 812 (235kW) panels have been installed onto the Sydney Maritime Museum’s Heritage Building which could not support heavy glass framed solar panels.  To date more than 1MW of eArche capacity has been installed in Australia

eArc has obtained a series of other certifications for reliability, including:

Edging options:  eArche lightweight solar panels are tougher, lighter, stronger, thinner

1)  Frameless 

No edge on the 2mm panel provides a thin, low profile installation with good flexibility.

2)   5.6mm thin frame 

The lightweight black anodized aluminium alloy frame option provides support without thickness (some flex but not bendable).

The Sunman eArc panels are used on major projects where reliability is critical and where the weight of rigid panels is not feasible such as the Byron Bay train.

Bend but never break!
