MiaSolé's FLEX-02 CIGS solar modules now UL, IEC and Class A certified

Copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic solar cell and panel maker MiaSolé of Santa Clara, CA, USA (which was founded in 2004 and acquired by Beijing-based renewable energy firm Hanergy in December 2012) says that its FLEX-02 solar modules are now IEC 61646, IEC 61730, UL 1703 certified and UL 790 Class A fire-rated.

The firm's FLEX module is claimed to be the highest-efficiency flexible, lightweight thin-film solar module on the market, with production efficiencies of 16%, providing high power density for applications from roofing to reservoir and landfill covers, to auto, truck and other transportation applications through off-grid and consumer applications. The modules are produced in high volume at MiaSolé's factory in Heyuan, China, which has passed UL, IEC and ISO9001 qualifications.

The low weight of the FLEX-02 module (<0.7lb/ft2) allows installation on roofs and other structures that cannot support the weight of traditional glass solar panels. Because they adhere directly to the surface of the structure or object, there are no penetrations, eliminating the worry of leakage and damage to valuable contents within a building. The FLEX-02 also blends into roofs (both metal and TPO), vehicles and other structures, preserving the original look without unsightly racking. The low-profile module is also claimed to provide superior wind resistance and a seismic advantage over traditional rack-and-panel systems (where the higher profile increases the likelihood of damage in a hurricane or earthquake).

Upland to sell MiaSolé's FLEX modules in New Mexico and El Paso, TX

MiaSolé has entered into a sales agreement for Upland Corp (a manufactures' representative firm that provides building material solutions in roofing, insulation and waterproofing to the commercial construction industry) for the sales and marketing of its FLEX modules in the territories of New Mexico and El Paso, TX. Since 1984, Upland has provided building solutions to these construction partners including architects, building owners and contractors.

MiaSolé's FLEX modules bond directly to a roof surface with a simple peel-and-stick adhesive. In particular, the FLEX-02 Series module is available in two formats. The FLEX-02W module is 39.3 inches x 102.3 inches and is rated at 360W, and designed for low-slope commercial single-ply roof systems. The FLEX-02N module is 14.6 inches x 102.3 inches and is rated at 120W, and designed specifically for standing-seam metal roofs.
