GoodWe has launched a new range of building integrated solar PV (BIPV) panels that are designed to seamlessly integrate with the existing architecture of a building.
This includes the Sunshine series, which is an [ML1] 92W panel offering 170W per square metre making it suited for residential, commercial and public buildings.
The Sunshine series has a double-glazed structure that is both tough and self-cleaning with a Class A fire rating. It is also able to withstand hurricane force winds making it versatile to various uses across central and coastal regions of the UK.
Alongside this, GoodWe has also released a lightweight 3000W panel that is able to generate 184W per square metre, called the Polaris series. This comes with a modular design aimed at quick installation across a range of applications from carports to flat-to-sloping roof conversions.
The Polaris series has reinforced double glass providing high impact resistance making it durable for different locations and is able to withstand hurricane force winds, much like the Sunshine series.
GoodWe’s final product in the new range is built to be integrated on conservatory and sunroom structures providing a means to produce zero-carbon energy in addition to a shade spot for sunrooms.
The Starlux zero carbon sunroom panel has a modular ultra-slim design with a 50mm frame that can be removed and deployed across alternative structures.
“The BIPV range of panels enables GoodWe to offer a complete solar PV solution – panels, inverter, battery and smart management – from one supplier,” said Eugene Lucarelli, strategic marketing manager at GoodWe UK.
“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.”
The new BIPV range forms part of the Chinese inverter manufacturer’s EcoSmart Home solution that uses three key components to build an intelligent power ecosystem designed to deliver all the electricity requirements for a household.
This includes BIPV panels, battery technology with EV charger and a Smart Energy Management System.
[ML1]Again, be careful with language like this, it’s PR-y. No one designs panels to be difficult to install, and we can’t vouch for the ease of installation really
