Thin, Lightweight, Flexible Solar from a New Renewable Technology.
Shifting the Power.
The game-changing solution we have all been looking for.
It’s light, flexible, thin, durable, and created to exacting specifications.
Sunflare Flexible Solar Modules
Our process makes Sunflare modules better. No roll-to-roll process can create panels as uniform and reliable as Sunflare. Precise cell-by-cell manufacturing produces superior quality.
Light, thin, and flexible panels. The first CIGS panel precision-engineered to meet exacting specifications for outstanding performance and reliability.
Sunflare uses Copper, Indium, Gallium and Selenide – semiconductor materials that require minimal heat. As a result, Sunflare produces 5x less CO2 than silicon cells found in typical solar panels. No other solar company can make the same claim.
Creation of Sunflare modules REQUIRE NONE OF THESE HIGH-ENERGY CREATION AND CONSUMPTION PROCESSES.
No purification of silicon
Every Sunflare panel is made of our SUN2 cell starting with high-quality stainless steel, then layered with semiconductor materials only a few micrometers thick. The result is thin, lightweight and flexible solar. How thin is thin solar? Sunflare solar panels are 1.7 mm thick vs 100.0 mm for a traditional silicon solar panel.

SUNFLARE IS THE CLEANEST MASS PRODUCED SOLAR POWER ON THE PLANET.
1/10 of the Global Warming Potential of Silicon Modules
The production process for Sunflare solar modules results in a global warming potential (GWP) of just 1/10 of silicon modules.
The Sunflare manufacturing process is very energy efficient versus silicon production which requires temperatures of 1800 degrees Celsius. Sunflare uses an extremely thin light-absorbing CIGS layer with less than 1mm of elemental materials in its production process. In addition, there’s no glass. And the Flex60 has no aluminum frame.
Note: Global Warming Process is measured as kilogram C02-equivalents. The increase of earth’s temperature is related to the increase of the emission of gases, such as CO2, methane, water vapor, nitrous oxide and CFCs, among others, from man-made sources, mainly from the burn of fossil fuels.

Sunflare lightweight CIGS Modules have the lowest carbon footprint among all electricity sources.
- Sunflare lightweight modules has a CO2 foot print only 1/5 of silicon.
- Lower climate contribution than both on-shore and off-shore wind.
- Above is valid for installations both in Sweden and Arizona(USA).
Does not rely on toxic chemicals. No lead, cadmium, hydrofluoric acid, or hydrochloric acid.
Requires less water to manufacture and recycles the little water used
Materials are recycled when spent.
Unlike fossil fuels, Sunflare solar panels do not produce pollutants or release CO2 into the atmosphere as they generate energy.
80% less energy to produce than Silicon.
A little light goes a long way
SUN2 cells perform brilliantly during low light times, such as dawn, dusk, and cloudy days.
Warm. And friendly
SUN2 require 80% less energy to produce than typical silicon panels. Making them better for the environment.
Bend them to your will
SUN2 panels can flex with the shape of any roof. Plus, they’re far more durable than rigid and fragile silicon cells.
Cool under pressure
Unlike traditional solar, SUN2 cells have a lower temperature coefficient, so they create more power during the warmest hours – without the need for air circulation beneath them to cool down.
Less stress to install
Sunflare panels require no aluminum framing. No glass. And no hardware mounting. So they’re easier, more cost efficient, and less labor-intensive than silicon solar panels.
