Rating: 7 out of 10
Uni-Solar shingles are flexible “peel and stick” in nature, and are applied to approved solid substrates only. Manufacturer’s instructions must be followed. Each shingle strip is 15.5″ in width and from 112.1″ to 216″ in length, depending upon the number of cells and power rating. The 68 watt shingle consists of 11 triple junction amorphous silicon solar cells connected in series. Units are pre-wired with 22″ #12AWG lead wires with quick-connectors for ease of installation. May be used in systems up to 600VDC.
Shingles have a UL1703 rating for electrical and fire safety with a Class A, B, or C fire rating depending upon the slope of the roof. With UV protection, the flexible shingle strips are highly durable.
Solar panels and shingles offer an attractive deep blue or purple-toned colour that creates interest and high curb appeal.
