Silfab, Morgan to Produce Solar Modules with Optical-Film Technology for Enbridge

Morgan Solar, a light management technology company, has announced the sale of 13.6 MWDC of its bifacial solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to Enbridge, a leading energy infrastructure company.

Further, these solar panels will be embedded with performance-boosting SimbaX technology and will be manufactured by Silfab Solar under an exclusive license agreement between the two companies.

Silfab Solar is North America’s ultra-high-efficiency, premium quality PV modules manufacturer.

Besides, SimbaX is Morgan Solar’s proprietary optical film technology that boosts the performance of PV modules to generate higher yields. It can also be integrated into any standard silicon PV panel assembly.

While working with Silfab, Morgan Solar has certified both mono facial and bifacial versions of SimbaX technology.

Commenting on the product technology, Mike Andrade, CEO of Morgan Solar, said that “we are excited by this major demonstration of our SimbaX technology. Due to our T-innovation design approach, we were able to leverage Silfab’s capacity and high-quality manufacturing to bring this innovative product to market at a greater pace and scale than is typical for our industry.”

Moreover, these solar panels will be destined for Alberta Solar One project located in Burdett, Alberta and have been co-developed by Morgan Solar and Enbridge with USD 10 million in funding supports from Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA).

“SimbaX is another example of Silfab’s dedication to PV technology improvements and manufacturing innovative solutions that advance solar and continue to provide premium quality products,” said Paolo Maccario, President and CEO of Silfab Solar.

Maccario further added that “we are excited to be part of this new technology and partnership.”

Furthermore, this project will be owned and operated by Enbridge and is being constructed by Alltrade/SkyFire, a joint venture partnership. Also, the project is expected to reach commercial operation date (COD) during the spring season of 2021.

Meanwhile, this is a success story of 5 Canadian companies joining hands from across the country in partnership with ERA to create cost-effective clean energy and much needed new jobs in Alberta in these challenging times.

Earlier, Silfab Solar entered into a partnership with PM&M Electric, doing business as Titan Solar Power, to deliver its high-efficiency solar panels. Besides, Titan Solar’s initial commitments include Silfab 300w and 320w modules, the most sought-after panels for residential installations.
