The RAIS® XT addresses the issue of significant performance impeditions caused by shading, hot spots, and other issues due to the series connections of conventional solar panels.

“We have worked to address every shortcoming of commercial-scale rooftop solar,” said tenK Founder and CTO Dallas Meyer. “Generating up to 44% more energy per roof than typical rooftop solar systems, the RAIS XT delivers unmatched value and performance.”

If one solar cell in a solar panel is shaded, it significantly reduces the power output of the solar panel. This issue is usually addressable by installing the panel where there is no shading, or by removing the plants and whatever other objects cause shading. However, tenKsolar’s new system makes such issues less of a problem.

“Failure modes and risks of conventional solar modules including hot spots, potential induced degradation and high voltage arcs are rendered impossible with tenK’s technology,” continued Meyer. “And with our newly published energy production study, the data clearly backs up the tenK advantage.”
