Lightjoule, an ultra-lightweight solar panel, won the award in recognition of the dramatic weight-saving achieved by AGC’s Leoflex™, a thin and strong chemically strengthened specialty glass.Using Leoflex as the cover glass, the weight of Lighjoule has been successfully reduced by nearly 50% compared to conventional solar panels.
Lightjoule™ : Advantages
- Approximately 50% lighter than conventional solar panels
(Convertible solar panel: 17.0kg/sheet => Lightjoule: 9.5kg/sheet)
- Can be installed on rooftops with loading weight restrictions without implementing reinforcement work
- Easy to carry and greater installation efficiency
AGC will market Lightjoule and continue to offer products and technologies that respond to market needs for energy conservation.
