Mitrex installs largest building integrated vertical photovoltaic wall in Ontario
MITREX WEST WALL TECHNOLOGY (CNW GROUP/MITREX)—Mitrex Building Integrated Solar Technology has started the installation of Ontario's largest building integrated vertical solar photovoltaic (BIPV) wall.

TORONTO—Canadian Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) manufacturer Mitrex is installing the largest building integrated vertical photovoltaic wall in the province in Etobicoke, Ont.

The wall will cover an area of over 7,000 square feet of customized solar facade panels, manufactured at the Mitrex facility. The BIPV system has the capacity to generate 100 kW of energy, states a release, adding three distinct coloured Mitrex Solar Facade variants are being used with a combination of stone cladding to make the wall esthetically pleasing. The wall system is expected to produce 90,000 kWh of power annually while lowering the carbon footprint.

Mitrex foresees a future where every surface can be converted into an energy-generating unit, allowing easy adoption of green renewable energy, and bringing a paradigm shift in the construction industry.

“Mitrex Solar Facades are a sustainable option for efficient energy production, while simultaneously providing much faster returns than the traditional solar roof panels,” explains Danial Hadizadeh, founder and CEO of Mitex Inc., in a statement. “Currently, we use low carbon-emitting materials in the production process. This BIPV wall will further help us to offset our carbon emissions and lead us towards our sustainability goals. With this initiative, we are going to set an example on how to utilize solar technology in generating electricity without compromising the aesthetics of the building.”
