Public Profile

Holding multiple patents and having taken the best parts of various and multiple solar technologies, combine recent advances in bifacial solar cells with a proven specialized panel design, Taka Solar has integrated them for the lowest cost solar energy. A patent-pending second generation Taka panel suspends the solar tubes from two cables, like a suspension bridge - enables spanning of large open areas with a lightweight support structure e.g over parking lots without use of posts - an important breakthrough enabling panels to work seamlessly with their mounts to create a uniquely simple integrated solar energy system: covering entire parking lots. Bonus: overhead array is an aerial microgrid readily allowing for EV charging at every spot. Firm also working on use of Agricultural solar-tube architecture and development of a Taka panel will use larger diameter tubes that float
