TORONTO — Toronto-based Mitrex Integrated Solar Technology has announced the release of a new line of solar roof panels that replicate traditional roofing panels.
The Mitrex Solar Roof features a standard frame technology that allows visual integration with non-solar roof sections, states a recent release.
The panels come in such patterns such as asphalt and slate designs and are installed using newly designed techniques similar to traditional roof panels. The solar cells are sandwiched underneath a customizable tempered glass facing layer and a hidden frame. An anti-soiling coating minimizes the accumulation of dust and dirt on the panels, making them maintenance-free.
“Mitrex’s objective is to dive deep into new avenues in the BIPV industry by bringing a monumental shift through combining attractive design and embedded solar technology into building materials, making solar energy affordable and easy to adopt for every homeowner,” stated Mitrex CEO Danial Hadizadeh in a statement.
The nominal max power for the Black Asphalt Mono Module is up to 300 watts and the maximum open-circuit voltage is up to 1000 volts. The Black Slate Mono Module produces up to 350 watts nominal max power and up to 1000 volts maximum open-circuit voltage.
Mitrex bills itself as the leading global manufacturer of patented Building-Integrated Photovoltaics.
