We are thrilled to announce that Sistine Solar was just awarded $1 million courtesy of the Department of Energy's SunShot Initiative Award. The Department of Energy selected recipients who would drive progress for two main goals: a) lower the cost of solar electricity so that over the long-term it is cost competitive with coal b) increase the adoption rate of solar by “tens of percents.” It is currently at 1%.
SunShot saw in us the ability to radically increase solar penetration in both conventional places, such as residential rooftops, and unconventional places, such as branded rooftops, carports, and all sorts of unique architectural applications. We’re glad the Department of Energy is as enthusiastic as our customers about getting SolarSkin ready for sale as quickly as possible.
Along with the grant, Sistine Solar gains access to experts, facilities and test labs, which will allow us to fully test, warranty, and certify SolarSkin to meet our and the industry’s standards. Stay tuned over the next 12 months!
