GTech Global to represent MiaSolé in Northern California

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) has entered into a representative agreement for GTech Global to sell MiaSolé FLEX modules in Northern California.

GTech Global (GTG) and its associates have more than 35 years of business experience in developing and implementing energy-efficient building solutions, focusing on energy management and conservation. GTG specializes in integrated solar and roofing solutions for industrial, commercial, and agricultural customers.

GTG will sell MiaSolé's FLEX modules, which are claimed to be the most efficient thin-film lightweight flexible modules on the market (with an energy efficiency rating of +16%). The FLEX modules bond directly to a roof surface with a simple peel-and-stick adhesive. The low-profile FLEX module provides what is claimed to be superior wind resistance and a seismic advantage over traditional rack-and-panel systems (where their higher profile increases the likelihood of damage in a hurricane or earthquake), making FLEX modules suitable for the Northern California market. The adhesive approach also eliminates the need for racking and reduces labor and logistics costs, providing a 20% lower BoS (balance-of-system) cost than traditional glass solar systems, it is claimed.

The FLEX-02 Series module (which is IEC 61646 & IEC 61730 and UL 1703 certified) is available in two formats. The FLEX-02W module is 39.3 inches x 102.3 inches and is rated at 360W, 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, designed specifically for standing-seam metal roofs.

The low weight of the FLEX-02 module (<0.7lb/ft2) allows installation on roofs that cannot support the weight of traditional glass solar panels. Because the panels adhere directly to the roof surface, there are no penetrations, eliminating the worry of leakage and damage to valuable contents within a building. The FLEX-02 also blends into both metal and TPO roofs, preserving the original look of the roof.
