Co2Pro is a Danish wholesaler for photovoltaic systems, located in the town of Ikast. The company supplies high quality photovoltaic systems to a nationwide network of installers. Co2Pro offers their customers all photovoltaic components including modules, inverters and mounting systems, which are selected only from well-known manufacturers.

This 4.2 kWp installation in the Danish town of Ikast was installed by the Co2Pro partner Free Energy Limited, which is one of the most experienced installers in Denmark. The installation on the residential rooftop, consisting of 29 Solar Frontier CIS thin-film modules, was connected to the grid in December 2011. To cover the energy needs of the homeowner, the installer split this installation into a 20 module sub installation on the west-facing roof and a 9 module sub installation on the south-facing roof of the house. The total installation is expected to generate about 3,500 kWh of energy per year and will offset about two tons of CO2 emissions.

Due to their good low light behavior, Solar Frontier modules are also a good solution for east and west oriented rooftops especially compared to silicon modules. The homeowner also decided on Solar Frontier modules due to their black appearance, which integrates perfectly with the roof of the brick house.
