Beamreach Solar Launches Sprint

Beamreach Solar has announced the introduction of Sprint, its new lightweight photovoltaic (PV) solar panel system for flat commercial roofs. Sprint's light weight allows it to be installed on nearly all commercial roofs that cannot currently support heavy conventional solar systems (which account for millions of commercial roofs around the world), dramatically expanding the commercial solar power market. In addition to offering a lighter weight panel, Beamreach Solar's Sprint also has potential to provide customers with a better return on investment and a lower cost of electricity with, + More Power: Featuring maximum power capacities ranging from 290 watts to 320 watts, Sprint can generate up to 20% more power than conventional solar systems. + An Ultra-Fast Install Process: Sprint uses an innovative design that integrates racking into the panel, enabling an ultra-fast install process that requires no tools and no grounding. This allows Sprint panels to be installed up to five times faster than conventional panels and racking systems, significantly reducing installation time and labor costs. + More Panels on the Roof: Sprint's innovative design also reduces the distance required between panel rows, enabling up to 30% more panels to be installed on a roof, increasing the solar system's overall energy output. + Easy Removal and Reinstallation: Sprint panels can be easily removed and reinstalled, providing commercial roof owners with additional flexibility regarding their solar power investments. + Lower Shipping Costs: Sprint decreases panel shipping costs and its relatively high shipping density compared to conventional photovoltaic (PV) solar systems.
