The Tape SolutionTM

Setting new PV standards

Here at Sticky, our vision is to contribute to solar PV arrays on every roof, in every country!

46 years ago, Bill Gates and Paul Allen conceived their vision for “a computer on every desk, in every home” which lay the foundation for a revolution in personal computing and the creation of Microsoft.

Here at Sticky our vision is to contribute to solar PV arrays on every roof in every country. For that to happen, the industry needs to shift gears. The Tape Solution™ revolutionizes solar photovoltaic module manufacturing by enabling substantially higher throughput at lower cost, more ambitious levels of sustainability and minimized factory footprint.

Sticky Solar Power (formerly known as JB EcoTech) is a Swedish developer and supplier of innovative solar photovoltaic technology solutions. The company is based in Stockholm, was founded in 2012 and is owned by its founders.

The Tape SolutionTM

The Tape Solution™ is an innovative, technology agnostic cell interconnection and string production technology that avoids lead, decreases silver consumption, lowers cost, increases throughput and minimizes factory footprint. The technology has been developed by Sticky Solar Power since 2012 and is currently undergoing final industrialization ahead of commercial launch.
