GoodWe is launching a new range of building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) solar panels into the UK market.
The new range of panels are designed to seamlessly integrate with the existing architecture and aesthetics of a building and are available in three variations designed for specific applications.
The Sunshine series is an easy-to-install 92W panel offering 170W per sq. metre making it ideal for residential homes, hotels, community, and public buildings. Aesthetically, the Sunshine series is compatible with traditional roofing tiles replicating their visual appeal, colour and shape to enable the panel seamlessly to integrate within the roofing structure.
The Sunshine series has a toughened double-glazed structure that is self-cleaning with a Class A fire rating and able to withstand hurricane force winds. It is also equipped with heat ventilation and heat dissipation structure, along with dense drainage technology.
The Polaris series is a lightweight 3000W panel with a modular design made for quick and easy installation that can be used in various applications, including carports and flat-to-sloping roof conversions. The reinforced double glass has excellent impact resistance and can generate 184W per sq. metre. Like the Sunshine series it is capable of withstanding hurricane force winds.
The Starlux zero carbon sunroom panels can be used on conservatory and sunroom structures to achieve a balance between health, comfort and energy saving with the panels providing both shade for the sunroom and energy generating capability. The Starlux is a modular ultra-slim design using a 50mm frame that can be removed and redeployed on alternative structures.
The new BIPV range forms part of GoodWe’s EcoSmart Home solution that uses three key components – BIPV panels, battery technology with EV charger and Smart Energy Management System – to build an intelligent power ecosystem designed to deliver all the electricity requirements for a household.
Eugene Lucarelli, strategic marketing manager at GoodWe UK, said of the new range: “The BIPV range of panels enables GoodWe to offer a complete solar PV solution – panels, inverter, battery and smart management – from one supplier. For the homeowner, building owner and installer there is the peace of mind that all the components are designed to work seamlessly together creating a total EcoSmart Home solution.”
