Bifacial PV modules are a smart financial decision. As the energy industry changes, the cost of solar energy continues to decline. With the increasing demand for more efficient sources of renewable energy, innovators are turning to bifacial PV module technology to keep costs low. Several years in development, the design of this module is as innovative as it is simple. By focusing on both sides of the module, the rear-facing surface can be well-utilized while the front side produces energy. This allows more panels to be placed on each rooftop site without reducing efficiency! Currently, there are no tariffs for their importation, making them the most cost-effective PV module type for rooftops.
By combining bifacial panels with RM10EVO, you can take advantage of the Albedo effect. Photons are reflected underneath a solar module on a white or highly reflective roof surface and bounce back against the transparent back sheet. By utilizing more room between your modules and the roof surface, RM10EVO allows more space for reflected light rays to pass through, exposing these rays to the panel and maximizing efficiency.
Customer experiments show that the addition of RM10EVO to a solar array can increase energy output by up to 10%, vs. systems with wind deflectors, which equates to a huge amount of additional power over the lifetime of the system. When you consider the cost savings and increased revenue streams RM10EVO provides, coupled with its bifacial gains, it’s clear that this technology represents significant value for our customers’ business.
Measured results and simulated tests from Independent Validation Engineers studies indicate that bifacial gains consistently increase energy output. Unirac ran similar simulations and saw a 3-5% gain in energy production with RM10EVO over leading competitors’ products. 3-5% more energy over a period of several years is a massive difference in efficiency and savings.
As solar energy prices continue to decline, there is a growing focus on increasing production and efficiency. With the wide adoption, wide use, and attractive pricing of bifacial modules, why not add production from your investment?
The most significant value in solar racking systems can be found in power density and the time over which they operate. In many cases, even small improvements can have a big impact over the life of the system.
The world is turning towards renewable sources of energy. As the cost of solar energy continues to drop, commercial properties are poised to use a wider range of technologies to meet their needs. By using bifacial modules with RM10 EVO, Unirac can help remove barriers to your project’s success, allowing you to easily produce more power on your property and enjoy a greater return on your project!

” Currently, there are no tariffs for their importation, making them the most cost-effective PV module type for rooftops.”
I’m thinking with the “pass” on tariffs on bifacial panels right now one could first reroof with very light or white roofing materials or even paint the roof with polymer roof paint or use thick polymer covering that is “ironed down” to allow the maximum reflection off of the roof on any given day would also be helpful in harvesting more energy over say a 20 to 30 year period. Just sayin’.
