Stion's CIGS PV modules approved for Dubai market

Stion Corp of San Jose, CA, USA says that its STO Elevation Series framed modules are the first CIGS (copper indium gallium selenium) based thin-film solar modules approved as eligible photovoltaic (PV) equipment in Dubai as part of DEWA's First Initiative: Shams Dubai.

DEWA (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority) is launching the Connecting Solar Electricity to Houses and Building Smart Initiative, with the aim of encouraging consumers to adopt solar energy as a mean of producing their own electricity, and in line with the vision of Dubai as world leaders in the green economy. Any surplus of production will be fed into the electricity network and credited for off-setting future consumption.

DEWA says that, for these installations, it has set eligibility criteria based on international standards on quality and safety. Stion says that its modules are made using a reliable glass/glass packaging design, and are backed by a 10-year workmanship and 25-year performance warranty. With average summer highs in Dubai of 106°F, what is claimed to be the industry-leading temperature coefficient of Stion's PV modules will also provide superior performance and returns to consumers and project investors.

As part of its Distributed Renewable Resource Generation program, DEWA's First Initiative supports the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the smartest city in the world. It also supports diversifying the energy mix by promoting the use of clean and renewable energy sources to build a sustainable future for the Emirates.
