TROY, Michigan, Sept. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Viper Networks, Inc. (OTC Pink: VPER), a global leader in the LED street lighting products and Smart Cities integrated systems and solutions markets, is pleased to announce that the company has begun receiving shipments of solar panels from Toledo Solar to begin deployment for commercial and residential customers in the US market.
As previously announced (06/25/2021), Viper Networks has entered into a strategic US manufacturing and partnership agreement with Toledo Solar, Inc. (www.toledo-solar.com), to further expand the American-made solar energy company. market. Toledo Solar is the only US manufacturer of CdTe thin-film photovoltaic (PV) panels for the residential and commercial rooftop markets. Their frameless, all-glass, hermetically sealed solar panels are the most durable modules on the market, backed by an industry-leading 25-year warranty.
The first to deliver utility-scale power and reliability to the rooftop markets, Toledo Solar’s Cadmium Telluride (CdTe) solar panels require significantly less energy to manufacture, payback time of shortest energy and lowest carbon footprint in the industry. In the utility space, American-made CdTe thin-film solar panels have been proven to outperform foreign-sourced PV-SI panels in terms of return on investment (ROI) and durability. As a result, they currently supply approximately 40% of the US utility market and 8% of the global market.
Thin-film CdTe panels are 100% recycled with over 90% of all materials reused, while silicon panels are mostly discarded in local landfills, creating a growing problem of hazardous waste.
The landmark $739 billion “Cut Inflation Act” recently signed into law by President Biden provides $369 billion in climate and energy investments. One of the most valuable green energy incentives included in the legislation is the 10-year extension of a federal tax credit that reduces the cost of installing a rooftop solar system by 30%, and up to 40% if the panels are entirely made in America. . Notably, Toledo Solar’s panels are currently the only ones eligible for the 40% ITC credit (available through 2032) that applies to 100% American-made solar panels.
According to the Biden administration, in Florida alone, more than 1.1 million households will use the credit to install rooftop solar systems over the next decade, as the South Florida Sun Sentinel newspaper recently reported. .
