Canadian BIPV Maker Mitrex Releases 800W Solar Panel Akuo Energy agrisolar expansion

Mitrex Integrated Solar Technology, a Canadian building integrated photovoltaics manufacturer, has released its largest tandem solar panel with a total power output of up to 800W.

The panels are made in Canada using monocrystalline silicon solar cells and are equipped with Mitrex’s patented anti-reflecting technology which is said to optimize electricity generation. The Mitrex solar panels come with a 25-year warranty.

Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) is the integration of photovoltaics (PV) into the building envelope. BIPV’s efficiency is said to rely on the level of light transmitted through the glass to the photovoltaic layer. When colours or patterns are applied to the protective glass layer of a solar panel, light transmittance is affected.

Mitrex states that it studies the natural interaction of light and pigment, paying close attention to the reflective and absorbent properties of colour to optimize efficiency and aesthetics. “This balance between beauty and efficiency requires us to perpetually innovate photovoltaic glass,” says the company, adding, “Mitrex surface glass undergoes an extensive multilayered coating process through an atmospheric process.”

The company offers customizable, integrated solar products that generate energy on the external facades of structures, giving design liberty to architects, building owners & engineers. The company also offers end-to-end design, installation & maintenance services aiming to simplify the process for clients.

“We believe innovation begins with an idea to bring a positive change. Exploring contemporary renewable opportunities is our way of being the stimulus behind that change,” says Danial Hadizadeh, CEO of Mitrex Integrated Solar Technology. “We aim at smoothing the solar transition for hard-to-abate sectors. Reducing CO2 emissions and reaching net zero by utilizing solar energy is our decarbonization roadmap.”

The company has set a target for achieving a net zero future by 2050. Its product catalog includes solar facades/cladding, solar roof, solar glass, solar railing and offers personalized aesthetic solutions to clients. The company offers a revenue-sharing business model which allows them to competitively price their products in an attempt to make them more affordable and easy to acquire.
