Stick-on Solar Panels

A construction company has developed solar panels that use peel-and-stick technology to attach to roofs.

Lumeta’s Power-Ply 380 is a solar panel sticker! The product’s adhesive back allows it to be installed about twice as fast as conventional rack-mounted solar panels.

Coming from Lumeta, a subsidiary of DRI, a $90 million a year construction company headquartered in Irvine, the product is another sign that energy generation is being incorporated into conventional building practices.

“Solar needs to become part of the building envelop and this is a step towards that,” said Stephen Torres, COO of Lumeta. “The whole idea was to create a new product that integrates better with the roof system.”
