Gautam Solar has filed a patent & design registration for innovation in solar panels that reduces the installation cost of solar power plant at utility & rooftop scale. The innovation in solar modules halves the number of fasteners used during the installation of solar power plants.

"We are excited to announce our latest innovation in the solar industry," said Gautam Mohanka, the Managing Director and CEO of Gautam Solar. "Our new solar module is a game-changer for the solar industry, as it addresses the major issue of difficult, time-consuming and cost-inefficient solar panel installations by reducing the number of fasteners used, which can quickly add up, especially for large, megawatt-scale projects. We are confident that this technology will revolutionise the solar industry and help developers & EPC companies with high-quality solar panel installation at competitive costs in a reasonable time period."

The new solar panel design consists of two frames – a primary and a secondary frame with hollow structure (for light-weight design) which both have laterally extending brackets with grooves to provide an interlocking mechanism. These frames are configured to secure the panel and the brackets are configured to mesh upon operation using fasteners. This leads to a reduction in the number of fasteners (nuts, bolts and washers) used during panel installation by 50 percent.

In conventional system design, 16000 nuts & bolts and 32000 washers are required for installation a 1 MWp PV System consisting of 500 Wp solar panels. On the other hand, using the Gautam Solar innovative solar modules, only 8000 nuts & bolts and 16000 washers are required.  

The new solar panel design addresses the problem of water drainage. Existing solar panels are designed with the mounting part which creates a gap between the modules. Rainwater can easily enter this gap between solar modules and damage wires and electrical circuits utilized for the production of electricity from solar energy. In the new solar panel design, the enclosure formed by the brackets can be used for water drainage functionality and prevent damage to the electrical wirings secured to the frame.

Additionally, these primary and secondary designs are configured to form an arc-shaped structure to promote stability.

"We believe that sustainable energy is the future, and we are proud to be a part of this revolution," added Mohanka. "Our commitment to innovation and sustainability is unwavering, and we will continue to invest in research and development to create new and better solar solutions for our customers."
