SMASHsolar is breaking down barriers to solar adoption with the world’s first snap together solar modules, known in the industry as “solar LEGOS®.”
The mounting-integrated modules snap together and attach directly to a residential composition shingle roof in less than half the time of traditional mounting systems, and dramatically reduce the cost of going solar.
By integrating standard frameless dual-glass photovoltaic (PV) modules with patent-pending snap mounting, SMASHmount saves up to $0.15/W on overall system cost by reducing the number of installation steps by half and number of unique parts to just 2.
SMASHsolar’s innovations have earned it $1.5 million from the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative. They are the 2014 Winner of SPI Startup Alley Challenge, and an Alumnus of Clean Tech Open, the world’s largest cleantech accelerator.
