Midsummer’s new and slimmer energy-producing solar cell roof, ”Midsummer solar roofs”, have been successfully installed on a house in Kivik, in the southern part of Sweden. It is the first installation of the new roof. The roof is a beautifully folded metal roof that is integrated with Midsummer’s thin film solar panels and with a high effect.
First installation of the new and more beautiful Midsummer solar roofs has been carried out at a private customer in Kivik, in the southern part of Sweden. The new improved energy-producing metal roof has been installed at the same private customer who also installed the very first version of Midsummer’s energy-producing metal roof last year.
”Our end customer in Kivik was very happy with the previously installed solar cell roof and we are delighted to supply him with the newer, slimmer solar cell roof. Our customer in Kivik really appreciates the new, more stylish integrated design”, said Sven Lindström, CEO at Midsummer.
Slimmer, nicer and longer
The new model solar cell roof is slimmer than the previous one, which makes the roof more aesthetically pleasing and also increases the installed power per square meter. The new Midsummer solar roofs also offer the possibility to connect the solar panels for longer roofs, which means that Midsummer can supply its metal roof with integrated solar panels in lengths of up to 12 meters.
Midsummer solar roofs are supplied with solar panels already mounted and the installation is as simple as for a metal roof without solar cells. In order to simplify even further for the customers, Midsummer offers installation with turnkey contracts. Midsummer’s light, thin and flexible solar panels are fit to walk on and the weight does not differ significantly from a standard metal roof, nor the appearance or price.
The Midsummer solar roofs have an expected lifetime of 25 years with a guarantee of 15 years for the roof, and a guarantee that the roof delivers 90 percent of the installed peak power after ten years and 80 percent of the installed peak power after 25 years.
Midsummer is experiencing a great interest in its newly launched solar cell roof from all over Sweden, which is the first country where it is launched.
”In recent years, solar cells have grown rapidly throughout the world and we are now experiencing a great interest in our improved energy-producing metal roof Midsummer solar roofs. With the solar panels pre-integrated in the roof, this product is a no-brainer for both new buildings and many older buildings”, Sven Lindström continued.
