Boundless Impact Research and Analytics evaluated the environmental impact of aluminum module frames versus our recycled steel frames.

The results are striking.
An easy switch to steel frames delivers more than an 80% reduction in GHG.

Our solar industry can and must deliver a cleaner renewable energy!


Why can’t the solar module frame cost less? And deliver less environmental impact?

Innovation has driven cost savings across the entire solar ecosystem, except the module frame. Aluminum module frame costs have not declined over the last 20 years and now represent a much needed opportunity for cost reduction and innovation.

Origami Solar intends to reverse the solar industry’s reliance on aluminum, unlocking dramatic cost savings and reducing environmental impact (GHG) with an innovative and patent pending design for steel module frames.

Significant Cost Reduction

The Origami solution uses roll-formed steel to significantly save on raw material and manufacturing cost.

Reduced GHG Impacts

Using recycled steel and new production methods, steel has become less energy-intensive for lower carbon manufacturing, delivering a >85% reduction in GHG emissions.

Rebuild Domestic Supply Chains

The Origami solution enables module manufacturers to deliver product differentiation and lower costs while protecting against supply chain disruptions.
