Los Angeles, United States — Sulfurcell, one of the leading manufacturers of CIS/CIGSe-based thin-film solar modules in the world, has started U.S. operations. Sulfurcell’s full line of German-made CIS thin-film modules is now available in the United States for a variety of rooftop and building integrated applications.
The Berlin based company, which is partly financed by Intel Capital, said that it plans to develop a robust network of system integrators and installers throughout North America in the coming months. Sulfurcell’s North American operations will be run out of new offices in Los Angeles, California.
“We’re confident Sulfurcell’s industry-leading thin-film modules will enjoy broad adoption in the American market,” said Nikolaus Meyer, CEO of Sulfurcell. “Sulfurcell’s thin-film modules combine black-tile aesthetics and high performance within a wide range of temperatures making them ideal for building integrated, residential and commercial rooftop applications.”
Sulfurcell’s copper-indium-sulfide (CIS) thin-film solar power modules have a smooth black appearance and a compact format. Sulfurcell thin-film modules were first made available to the European market in 2005. The modules are IEC-certified and exceed standards. Since initiating commercial-scale production in 2005, the company has manufactured and sold over 100,000 modules, making it one of the three largest manufacturers of CIS/CIGSe-based thin-film modules in the world.
