Midsummer launches solar tile for Sweden’s most popular roof shingle

Midsummer AB of Järfälla, near Stockholm, Sweden – a provider of turnkey production lines as well as flexible, lightweight copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film solar panels for building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) – has launched a solar panel exclusively developed for Sweden’s largest manufacturer of roof tiles, Benders, and its most popular Palema model.

The new solar panel is integrated with the Palema roof tile and can be installed on both existing and new Benders roofs. The panel will be manufactured by Midsummer and will be marketed and sold by Benders.

The new solar roof panels will be integrated with Benders’ most popular 2-barrel Palema model. Orders for the new Palema solar tile are accepted with immediate effect and deliveries will begin in October.

”Solar panels have had tremendous growth in Sweden and the rest of the world in the last few years,” says Midsummer’s CEO Sven Lindström. “For this development to continue and to attract even more consumers to install solar panels, we need easily assembled products that are aesthetically attractive,” he adds. “In this particular case we have used Midsummer panels’ unique properties, flexibility and freedom of our solar panels to adapt the shape and size to the customer’s needs. With these panels developed for Sweden’s most popular roof tiles, we hope to speed up the process so that more people are tempted to install solar panels on their existing and new roofs in the Nordic market.”

The partnership with Benders forms part of Midsummer’s new strategy to develop and manufacture solar panels in-house and through contract manufacturers and sell them via selected partners, in addition to its core business of producing manufacturing equipment.
