Colexon Energy, a solar power engineering and distribution company has announced orders for 5,000 First Solar thin-film panels from installers in Cornwall and Oxford.
The black, frameless modules manufactured by First Solar are becoming very popular with customers, thanks to their excellent energy output characteristics, low production costs, end-of-life recycling programme and aesthetic appeal. The panels using a thin layer of cadmium telluride on glass have a superior energy output at high temperatures and under low light conditions.
Colexon Energy set up its UK solar warehouse in Sussex at the end of May this year and provides a range of kits, panels, inverters and mounting systems for domestic, agricultural and commercial applications. Colexon’s service package for installers also includes design, training and installation support.
