MiaSolé, producer of lightweight, flexible and powerful solar cells, has released its second generation FLEX Series Modules. The FLEX-02 Series module is a CIGS-based flexible thin-film PV module that provides high-power density for many types of roof applications. The panels are the highest efficiency, flexible, thin-film product on the market today, with >16% cell efficiency.
The FLEX-02 Series module is available in two formats. The FLEX-02W module is 39 in. x 102 in., rated at 360 watts and designed for low-slope commercial single-ply roof systems.
The FLEX-02N module is 14.6 in. x 102 in., is rated at 120 watts and designed specifically for standing-seam metal roofs.
Both FLEX-02 Series modules bond to the roof surface with a simple peel-and-stick adhesive. This adhesive approach eliminates the need for racking and reduces labor and logistics costs to provide a 20% lower BOS cost than traditional glass solar systems.
The FLEX-02 Series module is IEC 61646 & IEC 61730 and UL 1703 certified.
Founded in 2004, MiaSolé has evolved from a Silicon Valley start-up to the world leader in thin-film solar panel efficiency. In its Sunnyvale, CA facility, MiaSolé has demonstrated 16% efficiency in production and 18% efficiency in the lab.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
