Kyocera Solar Inc., Scottsdale, Ariz., announced the introduction of MyGen Meridian, a UL-listed photovoltaic module and mounting system designed to blend in with a tile roof. The product pairs Kyocera's "d.Blue" solar cells with black frames, making it powerful and inconspicuous. When combined with standard concrete roofing tiles, the module visually blends with a home's architecture, becoming an energy-producing enhancement to the home's roof. MyGen Meridian also incorporates a free airflow framing system for increased thermal efficiency and a cassette-type module installation. The cassette design allows for easy installation and simple replacement of damaged modules without disturbing the roofing material.
