UNI-Solar PVL-124 124W Phot-Voltaic Module Amorphous Laminate-solar panel

UNI-SOLAR photovoltaic laminates (PVL) are flexible and lightweight laminates made exceptionally durable by encapsulation in UV stabilized polymers.The polymer encapsulation is partially constructed of durable ETFE, (example, Tefzel) a high-light-transmissive polymer. These solar panels rock. Their photo-voltaic material is an amorphous laminate and at 124 watts they pack quite the punch power wise.
