Scottsdale, Arizona [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Not only has Kyocera Solar installed its 2.5 kW MyGen Meridian, a building-integrated solar system, on a model home in Lincoln, California, but the homebuilder, D.R. Horton, Inc., is offering the MyGen Meridian system as an option on new homes in the Horton Augustus development.“Kyocera’s MyGen Meridian system serves as a roof surface and a pollution-free, aesthetically pleasing electrical generator,” said Mark Voitek, Kyocera Solar VP of sales. “This raises the value of the home without impacting its curb appeal.” The solar arrays feature a unique free-airflow framing system for increased thermal efficiency and a cassette-type module installation. Unlike other systems, the cassette design allows for ease of installation, and individual module access for serviceability, without disturbing the roofing material. Kyocera’s newly developed d.Blue manufacturing process is incorporated in the MyGen Meridian system. The company says the process yields increased power output, and a “deep blue” color by reducing reflectance and maximizing the amount of sunlight the solar module absorbs. The model home allows potential buyers to see the solar system in operation, aiding in the decision of whether to add one to their new home.
