Solaria Corporation, a worldwide manufacturer of solar photovoltaic modules is shipping its patented frameless solar module to customers around the globe. The frameless modules are both strong and durable, featuring Solaria’s breakthrough PV technology, which minimizes costs of solar power systems. The company’s PV modules are specially designed and optimized specifically for utility and industrial scale tracking systems.

“Solaria’s customers – utilities, independent power producers, integrators, and other energy providers – can obtain a unique combination of attractive pricing and high system performance with Solaria modules,” said Solaria CEO Dan Shugar. “Solaria’s technology reduces the amount of crystalline PV needed for each watt of output, and is perfectly suited to frameless modules, since the integral cover glass is so strong and robust.”

Solaria’s high-efficiency modules deliver industry leading costs with the reliability and performance of traditional crystalline solar modules. Plus, the modules are built to industry standard form factors, and can be installed on solar trackers using conventional installation methods. Solaria frameless modules are available in 230 Watts, 220 Watts, and 210 Watts.

“Our frameless modules are incredibly easy to install – and reduce shipping and balance of system costs. Our innovative technology is enabling Solaria to deliver a reliable product that will help improve the economics of large, commercial, industrial and utility-scale solar power plants,” added Kevin Gibson, Solaria CTO.
Solaria frameless modules are certified to UL 1703 and IEC 61215 and IEC 61730 flat-plate standards, and have the smallest carbon footprint and fastest energy payback of any silicon-based panel. Solaria modules are now available to customers in North America, Europe, and Asia.

Nine new projects announced today takes Amazon's renewables portfolio beyond 200 projects

Amazon claims it is now Europe's largest corporate buyer of renewable energy as its projects surpassed 200 globally.

Broken down, it has 136 solar rooftops on facilities and stores and 71 utility-scale wind and solar projects, nine of which were announced today covering the US, Canada, Spain, Sweden and UK. They include:

First solar project paired with energy storage Based in California’s Imperial Valley, Amazon’s first solar project paired with energy storage allows the company to align solar generation with the greatest demand. The project generates 100MW of solar energy, and includes 70MW storage.

First renewable project in Canada An 80 MW solar project in the County of Newell in Alberta. Once complete, it will produce over 195,000MWh of renewable energy to the grid.

Largest corporate renewable energy project in the UK Amazon’s newest project in the UK is a 350MW wind farm off the coast of Scotland and is Amazon’s largest in the country. It is also the largest corporate renewable energy deal announced by any company in the UK to date.

New projects in the US Amazon’s first renewable energy project in Oklahoma is a 118 MW wind project located in Murray County. Amazon is also building new solar projects in Ohio’s Allen, Auglaize, and Licking counties. Together, these Ohio projects will account for more than 400MW of new energy procurement in the state.

Additional investments in Spain and Sweden In Spain, Amazon’s newest solar projects are located in Extremadura and Andalucia, and together add more than 170 MW to the grid. Amazon’s newest project in Sweden is a 258 MW onshore wind project located in Northern Sweden.

It now has more than 2.5 GW of renewable energy capacity, enough to power more than two million European homes a year, and aims to power all its activities with renewables by 2025 and net zero by 2040.

Amazon and Global Optimism co-founded The Climate Pledge in 2019, a commit ment to reach the Paris Agreement 10 years early and be net-zero carbon by 2040. The pledge now has 53 signatories, including IBM, Unilever, Verizon, Siemens, Microsoft, and Best Buy.
