Ontario-based Mitrex launches a solar roof BIPV—says it transforms homes into power systems

Ontario — Mitrex is bringing to market its roofing panels, developed to provide a cost-efficient energy solution for homes.

The company says it’s patented building-integrated photovoltaic technology (BIPV) extends a building’s energy-generating potential, allowing the potential for every sun-touched surface to generate electricity.

Adding that the solar roof panels can be easily installed on both new and existing homes. Besides being affordable, Mitrex’s products can also seamlessly mimic the appearance of traditional asphalt and slate shingles, with various colours and patterns available.

The company says the visual appeal of Mitrex’s roofing panels serves as a stark contrast to traditional solar panels, further extending the company’s leadership within the renewable energy industry.

“Our solar roof solutions are ideal for homeowners looking to reduce their carbon footprint and make a positive impact on the environment,” says Mitrex CEO Danial Hadizadeh. “With our streamlined installation process, homeowners are now able to tap into solar technology to contribute to a net-zero carbon future without compromising the look of their home.”

Similar products in the market have developed solutions that are aesthetically pleasing, but the installation process involves a replacement of the entire rooftop instead of integrating into an existing surface. On the other hand, versatility was the main driver for Mitrex’s product development.

Mitrex invests heavily in research and development, and all of these applications are part of its mission to increase solar energy adoption around the world. Mitrex solar roof products are proudly made in Canada, in a custom-built factory based in the Greater Toronto Area. The company’s facility allows for reliable and consistent production of thousands of high-quality solar panels per month.

If current production is in the thousands, wouldn’t a picture at the minimum be adequate the release a product? I want to believe this product as true, but the proof is in the pudding! Right now, no table, no spoon, and certainly no pudding… Let’s see a product!
