Solomon Technologies Energizes First Instant Solar PV System

September 01, 2009 by Jeff Shepard

Solomon Technologies, Inc. announced that its Technipower subsidiary has installed its first Instant Solar™ system at its Danbury, Connecticut headquarters. The pre-assembled, pre-wired system, which is a self contained unit comprising two solar arrays and all the equipment necessary to tie to the power grid, was easily and quickly erected and electrically connected. The company has a patent pending on the system.

Dan Connors, President of Technipower said, "Our installation demonstrated how easily the system can be placed in service at a customer’s site. Instant Solar provides an appealing alternative to solar installers, electrical contractors, building services providers, architects, and energy consultants who are expanding their business into the solar market and want flexibility without complexity. Since our recent announcement and local press coverage, we’ve had a very positive response from a number of industry channels."

Connors continued, "In being our own customer, this installation has provided us valuable insights in streamlining the sales and installation process to improve the overall value proposition to the end user. We expect to install additional solar units at our Danbury headquarters and at our Reynosa, Mexico facility and to ship the first commercial units during the fourth quarter of this year."
