WUXI, China and LONG BEACH, Calif., Sept. 25 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ --
Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STP), one of the world's leading
manufacturers of photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules, today announced the
introduction and availability of a new all black solar module targeting the
U.S. market for solar homes. Suntech's new MSK Black Label(TM) product will
be unveiled on September 25 at the Solar Power 2007 Conference and Expo being
held in Long Beach, CA and will be available for sale for delivery in 2008.
Suntech's MSK Black Label(TM) is a 170 watt solar module designed to be
installed on the standard American home. Using dark colored components, the
Black Label(TM) will blend into the existing roof and provide the high level
of aesthetics that the typical U.S. homeowner expects.
"For the first time, U.S. homeowners will have the opportunity to purchase
a powerful, aesthetically pleasing solution without paying a significant
premium. Competitively, this is what sets our Black Label(TM) module apart
from other offerings in the U.S. solar homes market," commented Len May,
Suntech America's VP of Business Development for MSK BIPV Products.
"We are committed to being a long-term player in the PV market in North
America, and this new product launch represents a strong step forward in
Suntech's penetration of the rapidly growing U.S. solar homes market," said Dr.
Zhengrong Shi, Suntech's Chairman and CEO. "Our Black Label(TM) module
supplements our large and growing portfolio of high-efficiency solar modules
with excellent build quality and proven performance in the field."
The Black Label(TM) module complements Suntech's industry leading range of
MSK building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) products that are designed for the
residential and commercial building markets. With over 4,000 installations
worldwide, Suntech's MSK Just Roof is a roof integrated PV system designed to
form a complete roof, replacing tiles or other roof coverings. Based on
amorphous silicon photovoltaic technology, Suntech's MSK Photovol Glass has a
uniform, dark finish, similar to tinted glass, and is ideal for use in curtain
walls, skylights, canopies, atria and all other vertical or sloped glazed
surfaces. Suntech's MSK Light Thru Glass BIPV Glazing encapsulates cells
between two sheets of glass with enough spacing to allow light to pass through.
Light Thru is made to order, allowing designers flexibility in specifying the
desired size, cell type, and cell spacing.
