Santa Clara, CA January 12, 2016 - Virte Solar in Finland has entered into a representation agreement with Miasolé. In 2016, Virte Solar will represent Miasolé in the Scandinavia market. Virte Solar will immediately begin shipping advanced building-integrated solar roofing systems in the entire Scandinavia region including Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark. Virte Solar will provide services for such areas as industrial, residential, and agricultural construction, as well as renovation projects.


Virte Solar's building-integrated photovoltaic metal roofing uses MiaSolé FLEX modules, the most efficient thin-film lightweight flexible modules on the market today with an efficiency rating of +16%. The low weight of the module (<0.6 lb/sq ft) allows installation on roofs that cannot support the weight of traditional glass solar panels. The MiaSolé FLEX-02 Series module is IEC 61646 & IEC 61730 and UL 1703 certified.

The Virte Solar BIPV roofing product is a technologically advanced, lightweight, and aesthetic solution virtually immune to wind and snow loads. Virte Solar roofing can be installed in many locations where traditional silicon panel technology cannot be employed.
