Building Integrated PV

BIPV (Building Integrated PV) covers a wide range of applications. From facades and canopies to Brise-Soleil, GB-Sol can manufacture panels suitable to integrate into a multitude of different buildings.

See the sections below for details on the different types of building integrated PV we can offer.

PV Facades

Architectural facades often require bespoke solutions and we are able to provide panels to integrate into many types of building envelope, including curtain walling, rain screens and atria. Our manufacturing division provides a custom module service that can manufacture a module to meet almost any specification.

Canopies and Verandas

Using a similar structure to our solar carports, we can also provide solar PV canopies and verandas. Utilising outside space around the property can be an ideal solution if the roof isn’t suitable for solar. It can also provide shade from the sun and shelter from the rain as well as generating electricity. With options such as clear backed panels to allow some light through, lighting, guttering and battery storage, the canopy can be easily adapted to your individual building requirements.

A canopy can be an interesting alternative to a traditional conservatory or extension.

We can manufacture panels to almost any size or shape, creating a unique and individual structure to compliment your home perfectly.
