Silicon Energy wins GCCA Award for solar innovation

'Cascade' double-glass PV module earns top honor in 'Best in Solar and Wind' category.

Silicon Energy was nominated for the GCCA Later Stage Award by the Washington Clean Technology Alliance in May 2013 for addressing the solar industry’s quality and durability issues.

Silicon Energy’s Cascade PV module and mounting system fully encloses all system wiring. Silicon Energy uses an advanced encapsulant resulting in a Class-A Fire Safety rating and a Potential-Induced degradation (PID) free module. In National Renewable Energy Laboratory “Test-to-Failure” testing, the Cascade outperformed standard PV modules.  

The Global Cleantech Cluster Association's Top 10 Winners represent the best of the association's nearly 50 member clusters and over 10,000 member companies.
