These Power-Ply 380 modules will reduce the time of installation of solar panels, making said installation much more likely. These Solar Panels are essentially peel and stick solar panels; you don’t need a frame, a mounting structure, and you don’t have to drill holes in your roof either! Thus, installation cost is reduced by an impressive 70% and installation time is reduced by 30%. The secret is in the Teflon front structures, which are strong and light enough to install on roofs without any further support. At 0.31 inches thick, these Power-Ply 380 modules easily shed water, so you won’t have to worry about troublesome puddles of water forming after a rain. The only real downside is that these panels must be installed on a flat roof, thus minimizing their energy effectiveness by 5%. For more information, click here!
