Our units are installed on rooftops, some of them exposed to strong weather conditions like this installation in Tromsø.
Our first pilot installation was installed in July 2021. Since then, we have not observed any failure or damage of the vertical units due to outdoor conditions.
Even as we are providing a green energy technology, we need to ensure we work to minimize the carbon emissions during the whole product cycle - from cradle to grave. A tool to help us achieve minimal environmental impact is life cycle assessment (LCA). This helps us in selecting materials, improve the production chain and analyze recycling potential.
Building a solid LCA framework is important for Over Easy Solar to obtain various mandatory and voluntary sustainability certifications and comply with forthcoming regulations.
