CIGS thin-film solar manufacturer MiaSolé Hi-Tech Corp., a subsidiary of Hanergy Thin Film Power Group, announced that its FLEX-03W solar module has increased its power output by nearly 10%, now delivering up to 540 W in only 5.6 kg (12.3 lb).
The flexible solar module can be installed in any location, on- or off-grid. The FLEX-03W removes the limitations imposed by rigid glass panels that can only be installed in certain conditions based on the type of structure or roofing of the building. MiaSolé’s ultra-light, high-efficiency flexible solar module continues to open up new markets, create new applications and enable new product design possibilities for manufacturers to integrate solar solutions into their products.
“Our improved flexible ultra-light solar solution empowers the next generation of flexible solar technology, allowing solar power generation wherever the sun shines,” said Mike Ma, Vice President of Global Business Development, Sales and Marketing at MiaSolé. “Our thin-film solar technology overcomes the limitations of rigid glass panels, and our continuous research into improving our technology has provided an increase in power output of almost 10%. Our flexible solar module weighs 85% less than standard glass panels, allowing our modules to go where glass solar panels can’t.”
MiaSolé’s FLEX-03W solar modules have a production efficiency of over 18%, more than two-times greater than MiaSolé’s previous generations. The modules can be configured in various sizes and modified to fit any application without penetration through exteriors by adhering directly to surfaces with peel-and-stick adhesive. Because they are flexible and only 1.5-mm thick, the modules are highly shatterproof and resistant to wind and seismic activity.
