The frameless flat roof membrane will be marketed by Suntech under the SolarEze(TM) brand that highlights its ease of installation even over existing roofs with no structural reinforcement typically required.

They also offer a solid foundation of resources and customers. They provide unmatched scope, scale and global reach in the growing solar industry," said David Field, president and chief executive officer of Open Energy.

"Open Energy's product fits well within our line of solar roofing products adding an excellent easy to install solar roof membrane that is ideal for commercial flat roofs, said Leonard May, Suntech's Managing Director of BIPV Products.
