TORONTO, Nov. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - Eclipsall announced today its first
building-integrated PV (BIPV) installation in Mississauga Ontario
consisting of a custom designed BIPV canopy and BIPV tower.
BIPV materials are designed to replace conventional construction
materials within the outer envelope of a building including roof,
skylights, glazing, exterior surfaces and façades. In addition to
producing electricity, BIPV installations add structural value and can
enhance a building's aesthetic quality and design.
The project in Mississauga uses 30 custom made frameless glass-on-glass
PV modules installed and used as a street level canopy along the south
façade of the building. Also, there are 7 glass-on-glass modules
incorporated into the curtain wall tower on top of the building
"The BIPV market is expected to undergo a significant growth period as
more architects incorporate energy production and aesthetics into their
building designs" said Les Lyster, President & CEO of Eclipsall. "It is
a natural extension of our solar business to develop custom
building-integrated solar products to meet this new and exciting demand
within green building design."
