TECHNOLOGY

Unveiling the revolutionary solar technology by Merlin Solar.

The Merlin Advantage

At the core of Merlin’s patented technology is an innovative pair of metal grids that serve as intra-cell and inter-cell interconnects. By fundamentally addressing mono-cSi cell micro-cracking and fatigue induced inter-cell interconnect failure, Merlin has enabled ubiquitous deployment of solar in the most challenging of applications.

Simply put, Merlin has extricated mono-cSi cells from a coffin of glass & aluminum, enabling our customers to implement solutions that were previously considered impossible. Merlin™ glass & non-glass panels have the proven performance and reliability of mono-crystalline silicon technology together with the advantages of being flexible, light weight, and enable peel & stick deployments.
