Applications

Stion’s Elevation Series panels offer exceptional performance for all applications.

Education / Residential

Stion’s panels can help you or your school save money on the electricity bill, gain energy independence and increase your property’s re-sale value. Stion panels can offset high peak electricity rates and have a number of key features that are particularly advantageous for residential applications, including superb aesthetics and exceptional shade tolerance.

Government/Commercial/Industrial

Stion’s panels can help your business or municipality mitigate future rising energy costs, while also meeting key sustainability objectives such as reducing your carbon footprint. In addition to numerous product benefits, such as lower balance of systems and installed cost than competing thin-film products, Stion offers a strong base of authorized partners to install the product and all products are made in the USA. See the images below of our test site.

Utility

In addition to helping utilities comply with renewable portfolio standards, solar provides an effective peak shaving mechanism and eases congestion in grid-constrained areas. Stion provides one of the largest, highest efficiency thin-film panels for utility installations. The panels’ relatively low voltages enable more panels per string, creating significant savings on system components and resulting in lower installed cost. Additionally, Stion will be introducing a frameless module soon that is ideal for utility scale projects.

Off-Grid

In addition to providing power to buildings and utility plants, solar panels can also be used for a variety of other applications, including cathodic protection, fence charging, lighting, traffic and signage, and rural electrification.

Manufacturing Cost

Stion CIGS thin-film is getting to $0.28/watt within 4 years. Crystalline silicon is getting to $0.40/watt within 4 years.
