It became apparent very quickly that many of if the features of BIPVCo technology could be used to overcome the shortcomings of conventional solar PV applications in the mobile / caravan / boats / leisure sector as well as industrial transport and logistics sector with even greater benefits than in fixed buildings.
OUR VISION was SIMPLE: TO DEVELOP A HIGHLY EFFICIENT, LOW PROFILE, FLEXIBLE AND LIGHTWEIGHT SOLAR SOLUTION SUITABLE FOR APPLICATION ON COMMERCIAL AND LEISURE VEHICLES WITHOUT THE NEED FOR PENETRATION OF THE VEHICLE BODY to support the modules.
MIPV Leisure Series Solar PV Panels and associated accessories offer a range of power outputs to suit most applications.
Advances in the CIGS thin film solar PV cell technology delivers a number of additional benefits over traditional glass based crystalline silicon panels. It has a cell aperture efficiency of over 17% and the MIPV leisure series of panels deliver a power output of up to 360W. The innovative peel and stick adhesive backing removes the need for expensive and heavy racking systems, resulting in greatly improved dynamics and a system weight of less than 3kg. MIPV Leisure Series modules also perform exceptionally well in low light conditions, far outperforming their glass crystalline alternatives, therefore making them ideal for application on motorhome and caravan roofs.
MIPV modules are certified to IEC 61646 and 61730 standards.
