Solyndra makes and sells green energy products
Established in 2005, Solyndra specializes in solar panels which stand out from any similar products available from competitor solar companies. They have produced over 16 million efficient solar modules to date, in various global locations to show off their efficiency, reliability, fantastic use of high-tech materials and a unique intricate design. Globally, there are over 100 megawatts of these panels installed giving Solyndra products a highly-respected place in the green energy markets which include wide ranges of competing sustainable energy solutions.
Cylindrical solar modules offer a revolutionary new solar system design
Solyndra and the white roof industry (a standard in California due to the lovely weather!) work in combination to give a 20% increase in power yield compared to "black" roofs. This white "cool" roof is an optional offer with the efficient Solyndra system. When installed together, the system may qualify for substantial federal tax benefits, such as the 1603 solar grant (or potentially depreciation benefits) - perfect for anyone who wants the IRS to pay out for a change!
The unique design of the Solyndra panels means the system's anchoring or ballasts only weigh in at about a pound per square foot (or half of other non-penetrating ballasted systems), and the use of cutting-edge technology provides power which is more consistent over competing solar panel designs. They install almost anywhere with a flat roof - from small house roofs to massive industrial installations.
Anyone considering replacing their current roof or constructing a new commercial building would benefit from a Solyndra/cool-roof combination and could see significant savings!
An investment in solar energy is the way to go for businesses of all sizes
Big industry is the main area targeted by Solyndra to reach its business goals. The company is ready to fully ramp up its operations and research and to make as many contracts as possible with businesses providing technology and sustainable energy solutions. Their products have been popular investment opportunities with business and utility entities, such as Virgin Green Fund, Madrone Capital Partners, RockPort Capital Partners, Argonaut Private Equity, Masdar, Redpoint Ventures, U.S. Venture Partners, Artis Capital Management and CMEA Ventures.
Investors can expect high returns from the increasingly influential global green energy markets and solar companies. Future estimates place Solyndra's eventual market cap at anywhere between 1.76 to 2 billion dollars. It looks like it will pay off to go green with Solyndra!
When you consider Solyndra's estimated 613 megawatt total annual plant capacity (by 2013), along with support by a $513,000,000 loan guaranteed by the US Department of Energy, the business markets, government and utility investors will benefit directly from the greater efficiency in sustainable energy technology. Financially, the green energy markets will pick up attention from investors looking for stable opportunities, and the US Government has shown it has no qualms about putting its money and resources aside for helping achieve these goals!
Solyndra's unique panel design plays an important role in sustaining the environment and global economy
Since the Kyoto agreement, the US Government aims to slash global greenhouse gas emissions by 6% by 2012, and aims to halve carbon emissions by 2050. Solyndra's efficient solar panels will play an important role in reaching these aims, and will add to greater flexibility in the future energy and technology business markets. Utility companies will greatly reduce their negative impacts on the environment.
These products show that harnessing our Sun's power is a viable option when considering decent sustainable energy solutions. Utility providers will be in a better place for reducing environmental damage by consuming less (and increasingly pricey) fossil fuels. Given the cut in carbon and greenhouse gas emissions, this will make utility providers more economically viable in the long-term... eventually passing on the savings from sustainable energy solutions to consumers.
It seems the business sector, utility companies, governments and global economy have only recently taken the potential of solar companies seriously. Shine on, Solyndra!
