BLACKSTAR - new ultimate solar panel from SoliTek
Manufacturing innovation is SoliTek DNA. In 10 years we have matured to offer the European market an exceptional new product. We are introducing our new flagship BLACKSTAR solar panel, that will please even the most refined and demanding customer.
At the core of this innovative product lie 3 major elements:
- Bifacial monocrystalline solar cells
- Premium tempered glass
- Flawless industrial design
This allows us to deliver a totally new user experience, when BLACKSTAR solar panel is installed on any rooftop. It’s esthetically pleasing 100% black face looks sleek and breathes luxury; the BLACKSTAR panels can be installed framed on any possible roof surface.
For a decade SoliTek is researching, developing & manufacturing solar panels only in Europe and only from trusted component suppliers. The highest production standards & quality of BLACKSTAR panels is approved by 100% circular economy compatible Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program Silver Award – one of its kind in the world.
Rarely a product can be advertised looking at it from the back side.
BLACKSTAR is different, because of exceptional industrial design. Yes, and the solar cells absorb the light from the back, too.
BLACKSTAR - a part of SOLID full glass panel series
Our SOLID series of full glass panels are manufactured with 3 top priorities: longest lifetime in the market, highest reliability, 100% recyclable.
BLACKSTAR panels are designed for even roughest cold, hot, windy and salty environments, they are 100% fireproof (class A) and totally recyclable. We have thoroughly tested and selected all our parts & materials suppliers. Because even the strongest chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
What is bifacial?
Bifacial is called an advanced double-sided solar panel that transforms sunlight into electrical energy on both – its top and bottom – sides. This is made possible using double sided solar cells and protective tempered glass on both – top and bottom – sides of the panel. It is very different from conventional solar panel with opaque backing.
The bottom solar cell side absorbs light that is reflected off the ground. This light is called albedo light. The white surface beneath the panel can reflect up to 80% of reflected sunlight. At ideal circumstances bifacial solar panel can generate up to 40% more electricity, compared with conventional solar panel.
To test our product for extreme durability, BLACKSTAR test-modules are placed in an industrial grade “test oven” to undergo 250 Thermal Cycles (up to +70C) and 50 Humidity Freeze Cycles (down to -50C), totaling to 5000 hours of hard tests, that simulate 50 years of “ordinary life on earth”.
SoliTek’s SOLID modules received Cradle to Cradle Silver Certificate
European solar panel manufacturer SoliTek has earned a Silver level Cradle to Cradle Certified™ for its advanced glass-glass SOLID module range. The company embarked on a demanding Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM process in the beginning of 2020, responding to a growing interest for environmentally sustainable solar panels in Europe, especially Scandinavia and Benelux, the primary SoliTek markets.
SoliTek started Cradle to Cradle certification of its glass solar panels
As interest for environmentally sustainable solar panels grows in Europe, SoliTek has embarked on a demanding Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certification process that will approve its Vilnius manufactured glass-glass panels as totally sustainable product, meeting all the requirements of the circular economy. The company expects to complete the certification process in the middle of 2020.
SoliTek is 10. Solar Installation Innovators
Today SoliTek is the fastest growing solar power plant installer in Lithuania, utilizing the experience gained in module manufacturing to install innovative, durable and highly efficient solar power plants. “The panel is the heart of every power plant. There can be no compromise here, after all, it is an investment for 20-30 years ahead. Quality is paramount,” says Donatas Černiauskas, Head of SoliTek Installations Business.
SoliTek is 10. Ready for the new breakthrough!
The history of SoliTek, the largest manufacturer of solar panels in Northern Europe, has begun 10 years ago when a group of scientists from the Lithuanian industrial company BOD Group started researching solar cells together with partners in Vilnius. Realizing its immense research and production potential, BOD Group founded a solar technology company that eventually became the leading solar panel manufacturer in the Scandinavian region.
SoliTek opens most advanced 2MW bifacial solar plant in Europe
Lithuanian solar technology company SoliTek has opened In Ukraine, Dnieper region, a new generation 2 MW solar power plant, the first of its kind in Europe. Equipped with top of the line bifacial glass-glass solar panels and horizontal single-axis sun tracking system, it will generate up to 40% more electricity than a conventional solar power plant. After piloting this project this year, SoliTek plans to start installing this model in EU markets. The size of investment by Global BOD Group, owner of the SoliTek, is 2.6 million EUR.
