MiaSolé Announces New Sales Channel Partnership with Inovateus Solar to Distribute Flexible, Ultra-Light Solar Products
New high-efficiency, flexible sol ar panels will revolutionize the solar industry by increasing penetration of solar worldwide, wherever the sun shinesLAS VEGAS, SOLAR POWER INTERNATIONAL EVENT – September 12, 2016 – Timed with Solar Power International, MiaSolé today announced a new sales channel partnership with Inovateus Solar, a leading solar development, design, construction and supply company based in South Bend, Indiana, to distribute MiaSolé’s new line of next-generation, ultra-lightweight flexible solar panel products. This strategic sales partnership will help MiaSolé expand the market penetration of flexible solar into new markets, new applications, and new locations on and off the grid, to make it increasingly possible to overcome obstacles to solar adoption and put solar power generation anywhere the sun shines. The sales channel partnership is coupled with other news that MiaSolé announced today at the Solar Power International event: the availability of its Next-Generation Flexible Ultra-Light Solar Technology Products. MiaSolé’s new line of flexible solar products represents a significant generational shift compared to previous versions of thin-film, flexible technology. The new MiaSolé flexible solar panels are highly efficient (up to 17% efficiency; 2x more efficient than previous flexible thin-film models), thin (only 2.5 mm), highly wind resistant and shatterproof, and ultra-lightweight (less than 0.5 lb per square foot, or 4x lighter than previous flexible solar modules). The ultra-lightweight form of MiaSolé’s new flexible solar product makes it possible to open up new applications for solar. In addition, MiaSolé’s new flexible solar product adheres to surfaces with a simple peel-and-stick attachment method, which reduces labor costs and enables more widespread, adaptable installations of the flexible solar modules. “Since our company’s inception, we have been strong supporters of flexible thin-film photovoltaic technology. We believe that the high-efficiency, ultra-lightweight technology that MiaSolé is advancing will continue to fulfill a need in the solar marketplace,” said TJ Kanczuzewski, president of Inovateus. “Our relationship with MiaSolé allows us to continue to deliver the best possible solutions to all of our customers. Inovateus will continue to seek out strong partners like MiaSolé, so we can continue to deliver a brighter future for everyone. ” “Inovateus Solar has an exceptional track record of successfully developing and installing hundreds of megawatts of solar power systems in the U.S. and around the world, as well as supplying solar components to hundreds of distribution customers,” said Anil Vijayendran, vice president of product sales and marketing at MiaSolé. “They will be an ideal sales channel partner to help put more of MiaSolé’s new generation of ultra-lightweight flexible solar panels into operation in a wide range of solar applications and locations.” To learn more about MiaSolé’s new line of flexible ultra-lightweight solar solutions and see the potential for new solar applications, visit the MiaSolé booth at Solar Power International in Las Vegas: Solar Power International September 12-15, 2016 Booth W300 Las Vegas Convention Center – North Hall & Westgate Hotel Las Vegas, NV To see examples, brochures and case studies of MiaSolé’s flexible solar solutions, visit http://miasole.com/miasole_solutions/ http://miasole.com/flexible_solar_documentation/ About Inovateus Solar Inovateus Solar is one of the leading solar development; engineering, procurement and construction (EPC); and supply companies in the Midwest United States.
