MiaSolé’s CIGS PV modules undergo performance testing at ProLogis’ test site

MiaSolé of Santa Clara, CA, USA, which was founded in 2001 to make copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic modules, is participating in ProLogis Renewable Energy’s rooftop photovoltaic test site, located in Denver, Colorado, USA.

ProLogis’ test site will provide side-by-side comparisons of modules from eight solar manufacturers. Performance measurements will be performed for a variety of module technologies, including thin film, monocrystalline, glass-on-glass and membrane-applied thin film modules. ProLogis’ site is the first Colorado project for MiaSolé and is the seventh testing facility in the United States to feature MiaSolé’s modules, says the firm.

“Continued improvements in conversion efficiencies, manufacturing yields, and cost reductions have helped make photovoltaic solar one of the most affordable and efficient types of renewable energy today,” said Joe Laia, CEO of MiaSolé. “We are pleased to participate in the ProLogis test site to demonstrate that our distinct manufacturing process produces CIGS modules that offer a compelling value to our customers.”

MiaSolé says that its CIGS thin-film photovoltaic solar panels currently convert 10.5% of sunlight into electricity. The products are designed for large-scale rooftop and ground mount installations for utilities, independent power providers and industrial scale deployments.
