Building Integrated Photovoltaics

Building Integrated Photovoltaics

Uni-Solar’s shingles and standing seam roofing panels are installed much like conventional roofing products, yet they incorporate triple-junction amorphous silicon thin-film PVs to generate electricity. The company’s PV shingles are installed alongside conventional three-tab shingles, whereas the company’s PV laminate can be integrated into standing seam roofing. They also offer the PowerTilt PV system that uses thin-film PVs on an angled lightweight mounting system.

Sustainable Light Module

Sustainable Light Module
The Helieon lighting system uses energy-efficient LED modules that are interchangeable, so lighting effects—such as beam angles, color temperatures, and light outputs—can be changed without replacing the entire fixture. These modular LEDs have outputs from 500 to 1,500 lumens and colors that match the light from either halogen or fluorescent bulbs (3000K and 4100K color temperatures, respectively). They’re being incorporated into lighting fixtures produced by various companies, so contact Bridgelux for product options.
