NEW

** Textured surface for Solbian SP solar panel **
After one year of tests and field trials, a new textured panel surface is now available on the SP series of Solbian flexible solar panels (special order). The slightly thicker layer is more scratch resistant and less sensitive to UV.

Giovanni Soldini, skipper of the Maserati 70-foot carbon fibre, mono-hull racing yacht advises it will be less slippery during the critical conditions he finds in his ocean crossings.  Available by SPECIAL ORDER.

The careful choice of materials and their thickness creates the right balance between protection of thin photovoltaic cells and the creation of a flexible and light case.  The extreme flexibility will surprise anyone who has handled a crystalline solar cell, normally so brittle that they break under very low stress.

The polymers used are also characterised by high resistance to weathering, enabling certification according to IEC 61215 and 61730, a guarantee of long life even under the most extreme conditions, such as on racing yachts where the Solbian technology was applied for the first time.

The Solbian product, in its various versions, is a light, flexible and impact resistant PV module, which can even be walked upon.  Lightness and flexibility make Solbian modules particularly suited to marine and sustainable mobility applications.

Solbian Technology

Solbian Solar panels has the power and reliability of crystalline silicon cells, combined with the lightness and flexibility of modern polymers.  The use of lightweight polymer films instead of traditional glass allows new applications for the proven technology of crystalline silicon cells.

​Solbian Solar Panel Comparison Summary

Solbian ALLinOne

The Solbian ALLinONE is the first flexible solar panel built with a battery charger in one package.

It combines the high efficiency SunPower solar cells with an advanced ultra compact MPPT charge regulator in a flexible solar panel.

A plug and play system, it just connects to your battery! 

Solbian CP Camper Series

The flexible solar panels of CP series are made using monocrystalline silicon cells, with an efficiency greater than 18%, incorporated in polymers with high strength.

The use of 156 mm square cells allows economies of scale while remaining at efficiency levels comparable with those of the SL series.

The modules in this series, the largest in size and power, are aimed at caravans, campervans, golf carts, electric cars, where larger surface areas are often available.

Solbian SXp Solar Extreme Power Series

The SXp series uses polycrystalline silicon cells which are slightly less efficient than the monocrystallineSX panels but are equally reliable thanks to same electrical connection technology.

These panels provide an optimal compromise between quality and price for panels with high aesthetic value.

Solbian produces a light, flexible and impact resistant PV solar panel that can even be walked on. Lightness and flexibility make Solbian modules particularly suited to marine and mobile applications.

The panels are made of special polymers selected by researchers of CNR, a patented technology.  The use of lightweight polymer films instead of traditional glass allows new applications for the proven technology of crystalline silicon cells.  The careful choice of materials and their thickness creates the right balance between protection of thin photovoltaic cells and the creation of a flexible and light case.  The extreme flexibility will surprise anyone who has handled a crystalline solar cell, normally so brittle that they break under very low stress.

The polymers used are also characterized by high resistance to weathering, enabling certification according to IEC 61215 and 61730, a guarantee of long life even under the most extreme conditions outstanding resistance to weather and degrading agents such as thermal shock, fog and salt water, solar radiation and shocks. 

Solbian SP Sun Power Series

SP Series photovoltaic panels are made using  SunPower™ monocrystalline cells, with a cell efficiency greater than 22.5%, incorporated in polymers with high strength.

In fact the SunPower™ cells, thanks to their "back-contact" technology, hold the record for efficiency in commercial products, reaching 23% conversion of sunlight into electricity and are the most efficient solar panels on the market.  

The main market for this series of panels is marine and all those applications where it is important to get the most power from the smallest possible space.  

They have an attractive aesthetic appearance thanks to the smooth black surface of the SunPower​​™ cells.
