MiaSole has announced that its copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS)-based, thin-film FLEX-02 solar modules are IEC 61646, IEC 61730 and UL 1703 certified, as well as UL 790 Class A fire rated.
The California-based company says its FLEX-02 module offers production efficiencies of 16%, and its low weight (<0.7 lb./sq. ft.) allows installation on roofs and other structures that cannot support the weight of traditional glass solar panels. Because the FLEX-02 modules adhere directly to the surface of the structure or object, there are no penetrations or damage, MiaSole adds.
The company claims the FLEX-02 is also aesthetically pleasing, blending into roofs, vehicles and other structures, and its low profile provides superior wind resistance and a seismic advantage over traditional rack-and-panel systems.
MiaSole notes it produces the FLEX modules in high volume at its Heyuan, China, factory, which has passed UL, IEC and ISO9001 qualifications.
