Santa Clara, CA January 26, 2016 – MiaSolé is pleased to announce that its CIGS-based, thin-film FLEX-02 solar modules are IEC 61646, IEC 61730, UL 1703 certified and UL 790 Class A fire rated. The MiaSolé FLEX module is the highest efficiency flexible, lightweight thin-film solar module on the market today, with production efficiencies of 16%. The FLEX module provides high power density for many types of applications—from roofing to reservoir and landfill covers, to auto, truck and other transportation applications through off-grid and consumer applications. The FLEX modules are produced in high volume at MiaSolé’s Heyuan, China factory, which has passed UL, IEC, and ISO9001 qualifications.
FLEX-02 modules provide customers significant benefits. The low weight of the module (<0.7 lb/sq ft) allows installation on roofs and other structures that cannot support the weight of traditional glass solar panels. Because the FLEX-02 modules adhere directly to the surface of the structure or object, there are no penetrations or damage. The FLEX-02 is also aesthetically pleasing, blending into roofs, vehicles and other structures and preserving the original look without unsightly racking. The low-profile FLEX-02 module provides 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.
MiaSolé is a producer of thin-film Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) solar cells and panels. Founded in 2004, MiaSolé has evolved from a Silicon Valley start-up to the world leader in thin-film solar panel efficiency. In its Sunnyvale, CA facility, it has demonstrated 16% module efficiency in production and 18% cell efficiency in the lab. In December 2012, MiaSolé became a member of the Hanergy family. MiaSolé joined Hanergy Thin Film Power Group as MiaSolé Hi-Tech. Hanergy provides unparalleled financial, technical, and sales expertise. Since the acquisition, MiaSolé has continued to increase cell performance as well as develop new applications for our technology.
