Santa Clara, CA March 15, 2016 – GTech Global and MiaSolé have entered into a Sales Representative Agreement. GTech Global will sell MiaSolé FLEX modules in Northern California. GTech Global “GTG” and its associates have over 35 years of business experience in developing and implementing energy efficient building solutions. Their group has focused their expertise on energy management and conservation. A broad range of experience has qualified GTG to be a leading developer of energy management programs. They are excited to partner with MiaSolé and the opportunity to help serve the thin-film solar market.
GTech Global will sell MiaSolé FLEX modules, the most efficient thin-film lightweight flexible modules on the market today with an efficiency rating of +16%. MiaSolé FLEX modules bond directly to the roof surface with a simple peel-and-stick adhesive. The low-profile FLEX module provides superior wind resistance and a seismic advantage over traditional rack-and-panel systems where their higher profile and method of attachment increases the likelihood of damage in an earthquake, making FLEX modules the ideal solar solution for the Northern California market. This adhesive approach also eliminates the need for racking and reduces labor and logistics cost to provide a 20% lower BOS cost than traditional glass solar systems.
The FLEX-02 Series module is available in two formats. The FLEX-02W module is 39.3 inches x 102.3 inches and is rated at 360-watts, and designed for low-slope commercial single-ply roof systems. The FLEX-02N module is 14.6 inches x 102.3 inches and is rated at 120-watts, and designed specifically for standing-seam metal roofs. The FLEX-02 Series module is IEC 61646 & IEC 61730 and UL 1703 certified.
The FLEX-02 module provides GTech Global customers other significant benefits. The low weight of the module (<0.7 lb/sq ft) allows installation on roofs that cannot support the weight of traditional glass solar panels. Because the FLEX-02 panels adhere directly to the roof surface, there are no penetrations, eliminating the worry of leakage and damage to valuable contents within the building. The FLEX-02 also is aesthetically pleasing, blending into both metal and TPO roofs and preserving the original look of the roof.
