MiaSolé and McElroy Metal Partner to Sell Thin Film Solar Modules

MiaSolé Hi-Tech, a subsidiary of Hanergy, announced a partnership with McElroy Metal to sell MiaSolé FLEX series, thin film solar modules as part of McElroy Metal’s solar panel solutions. The MiaSolé thin film modules carry a 15.5 percent efficiency rating with a simple peel-and-stick application method that reduces balance of system costs by 20 percent. McElroy will offer MiaSolé modules factory laminated directly to its metal roof panels to create a lightweight, low-profile solar energy solution durable in extreme, high-wind and seismic zones and on buildings with limited load bearing roofs.

McElroy also markets a complete solar kit for McElroy standing seam, low-slope, storage unit and carport metal roofs. By providing square footage and location, McElroy can provide a complete, pre-engineered solar package with MiaSolé modules, inverter and balance of system components.

The MiaSolé and McElroy Metal partnership combines many advantages for architects, developers, builders and contractors. The 25-year—or more—power output of the MiaSolé FLEX series modules compliments the long service life of metal roofs. Options for factory-applied FLEX modules to metal panels can further reduce onsite installation costs and contribute to consistent quality.

“Today, solar is becoming a standard part of the building envelope,” says Ken Gieske, vice president of marketing for McElroy Metal. “Our partnership with MiaSolé expands our support of green building initiatives and the growing demand for renewable energy as an industry standard.”

Anil Vijayendran, head of product management at MiaSolé, adds: “We are excited to partner with McElroy Metal. With a high efficiency rating for thin film, the MiaSolé FLEX series modules enable roof manufacturers to install a renewable energy solution on roofs and structures previously restricted by wind, seismic and weight limited building structures.”


  1. As a long time Florida builder with a history of photovoltaic thinfilm metal roofs, I would like to be considered as a passionate promoter of this forward thinking technology. Please keep me in mind as this concept continues to develop!
