Collaboration Award: Molex

Winner in: 2014

The Molex Interconnect System was uniquely designed for the DOW POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingle to form a revolutionary new roofing product that offers the protection of a conventional roof and powers the home as an integrated photovoltaic (PV) system. Molex developed three integrated products – Header, Biscuit and Harness – designed to link each shingle together to provide the optimum electrical circuitry needed to generate power. Molex addressed key requirements in the design of the Interconnect System including making the product durable, easily installed, aesthetically pleasing and cost-effective. Each solar shingle is designed to install, look and function in a way that has never been done before by providing an unprecedented integrated roof appearance and simplified installation.The result is a solar solution that gives consumers energy empowerment – allowing them to take control of their utility bills by using the sun’s clean abundant energy.
