  1. 1. Continuing Improvements! You will notice some subtle changes over the next few months to the Cascade Series PV module and mounting system. These changes are exciting as were making advancements with our materials and design to provide customers with an even better product. Quick Links Quality, Reliability & ConfidenceSilicon Energy Homepage Were consistently reminded by our partners that the durability of our module and the reliability of our equipment gives you SiE 3840/5300 Solar confidence in your installations. Inverter(s) We want to share with you that in addition to National Cascade PV Modules and Renewable Energy Labs (NREL) testing, Silicon Energys Mounting System products have now been field tested for 3.5 years, in multiple states and under a wide variety of environmental Silicon Energy Installation conditions. Were proud to state that 99.94% of our Cascade Photo Gallery Series PV modules and approximately 99% of our new SiE3840 and SiE5300 Silicon Energy inverters are performing flawlessly. Contact US Were extremely proud of the Cascades performance and the reliability of our new inverters. Silicon Energy, LLC 3506 124th Street NE Silicon Energy products are extremely reliable, giving you and Marysville, WA 98271 your customers confidence for years. Thats priceless.

NO DAMAGE! This is just an indication of the durability which is key to the performance longevity of our equipment. Although not indestructible, the Cascade is an amazingly durable solar PV product. We dont, however, recommend parking on your rooftop. Silicon Energy Modules are PID-Free Global Green Energy install Over the past decade, performance degradation and power loss have been observed in PV modules operating in the field when exposed to humidity and temperature changes. This is referred to as potential-induced degradation (PID). Present safety testing standards (i.e., UL, ETL, CSA, TUV, etc.) do not adequately test the durability of modules for PID. Modules, regardless of the technology used (crystalline or thin film) in continuously wet climates are expected to show the greatest effects of PID, due to moisture being the most important environmental factor affecting module performance. NRELs results, in combination with other research, suggest PV
  3. 3. module PID is exacerbated in wet climates more than in dry climates. Silicon Energys use of PID-free solar cells in combination with our high-durability module construction provides superior protection from PID. Additionally, Silicon Energy has undergone severe environmental testing, including PID testing, with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) since 2009 that clearly shows that our product is the most durable on the market.
