Sharp Introduces New OnEnergy Solar System at Solar Power 2007

Sharp Solar Energy Solutions Group, the US solar arm of Sharp Corporation, the world's leading provider of solar electric solutions, today introduced its breakthrough OnEnergyTM solar system, which uses UL-listed integrated grounding designed to make system installation simpler and more cost-effective.

"We wanted to provide Sharp integrators, installers and other customers with the most streamlined solar system available - one that is visually appealing and easier to install," said Ron Kenedi, vice president, Sharp Solar Energy Solutions Group. "The OnEnergy Solar System delivers the ease, aesthetics and simplicity that our customers value. Sharp is committed to delivering high quality, innovative, easy-to-install PV products that help accelerate the wider deployment of solar electricity."

Sharp's OnEnergy solar system features UL-listed, rail-by-rail integrated grounding, eliminating the need for connecting a ground wire from module to module throughout the entire array. This feature reduces the most labor-intensive aspects of installing a solar photovoltaic system. OnEnergy solar systems offer pre-cut, pre-drilled racks, fewer rails and mounting hardware - and require less ground lugs and copper wiring. Every component can be easily assembled, using one socket for roof lags and another socket for bolts, reducing overall system costs by cutting installation time.
