Solar tile with thin film technology already on the market

The growing concern for more efficient construction and a sustainable way of life is increasingly present in our society. And, in this scenario, local electricity production plays an important role – sustainable energy sources should be favored by businesses and individuals who care about the environment and also their economy.

Today we find an alternative for the production of residential solar energy, L8 Energy markets a solar tile with thin film technology in Brazil. According to the company, in addition to being resilient, the technology has greater energy absorption power, which makes it ideal for generating solar energy in homes.

The L8 solar tile has a high strength structure and therefore its durability is enormous. It comes with a 10-year factory warranty, and the power output after 25 years is 85% of rated power. On the efficiency side, we also have a very significant technological advance.

Guilherme Nagamine, CEO of L8 Energy.

The executive also explains that the absorption system is capable of illuminating a 30W lamp with a single unit – each tile measuring 50 x 70 cm.

Another important advance is its endurance.

It has the technology to offer the best solution for the production of thin films of CIGS (Copper, Indium, Gallium and Selenium). In practice, this makes the shingle stronger and more efficient than custom fiber cement shingles with monocrystalline silicon cells on the market.

Leandro Kuhn, CEO of L8.

Leandro claims that the L8 solar tile has great potential in the market, as it combines technical qualities and design, so that people can generate their own energy without having to change the architectural design.

The product received the Design of the Year award at the IF Gold Award 2019, the world’s most prestigious design event.

The L8 solar roof tile is insensitive to shadows, capturing diffused light and capturing more effectively in cloudy or poorly lit areas. The product is on sale in Brazil and the unit costs R $ 350.00.
