THE FUTURE OF SOLAR PANELS
Solar panels and aesthetics in perfect harmony for your roof
Solarpanels that neither affect the architectural lines or the aesthetic expression of your house
2,2 kg / squaremeter
3% raw materials compared to C-Si solar cells
Danish designed solar panels
CIGS solar panels are constructed using a modern technology that utilizes copper-indium-gallium-selenide (CIGS) as the active material to absorb solar energy and convert it into electrical energy.
Our ultra-lightweight 3 mm panels utilize the full roof surface and weigh only 2.2 kg per square meter. The result is that solar panels can be mounted on steel roofs without the need for static calculations.
Your house will remain the same
The idea of a solar panel roof are not new, but solar panels that do not affect the architectural lines and at the same time ensure the highest efficiency are new.
With our solar panels, aesthetics is the common denominator. The elimination of large, bulky glass solar cells makes it possible to be environmentally friendly with these solar panels.
Our CIGS panels lie 100% flush with the roof and thus do not affect the architectural lines or the aesthetic expression – but instead preserve the value and architecture of your house.
A solar roof that will produce green energy year after year
Our solar panels are produced from the highest quality materials and are designed to last a long time with maximum performance.
CIGS panels have a 25-year performance guarantee and a long lifespan, making them a good choice for any house or building.

Slim, light and super effective
CIGS solar panels produce higher efficiency than conventional solar panels. This is because CIGS solar panels have a higher absorption coefficient which enables them to absorb more sunlight compared to C-Si solar panels.
In other words, the CIGS panels are significantly more sensitive to light and utilize a greater range of wavelengths. The result is that the CIGS technology is up to 30-40% more efficient than other solar panel technologies with a similar location.
The extremely flexible solar panels also have a minimal temperature effect and are not shade sensitive – so you get the full effect of daylight.

How does solar panels work?
Solarroof.pro’s solar panels convert sunlight into electrical energy. They are activated by the light itself and not the sun’s rays. When it is cloudy, our solar panels will still produce electricity to a certain extent.
The solar cells are assembled into solar panels, and several solar panels can be joined together to create a solar system that can supply the required amount of power to a home or business – depending on need.
From sunlight to solar current
When sunlight hits the solar panel, it creates electrical charges that produce a current. This current can be used to power electrical appliances or stored in batteries.
Solar panels produce direct current, the strength of which depends on the size of the solar panel module and the intensity of the sunlight.
Electrons move in one direction
When light hits the surface of the solar cell, electrons gain energy that causes them to move in a certain direction. This creates a stream of electrons that move through the material, resulting in electrical energy.
Grid-connected solar panel systems
A grid-connected solar panel system is part of the home’s energy system, which is connected to the public electricity grid.
The power that comes to the house’s solar roof is direct current. In order for the current to be used in the socket, it must be converted to alternating current. This is done using a grid inverter that is placed inside the house near the electricity meter. From the grid inverter, the power flows out into the house’s sockets, mixed with power from the electricity company.
The angle between the sun and the panel can have a great impact on the effect of a solar panel. This is because the sun’s rays have the greatest effect when they hit the panels at an angle as close as possible to what is known as a “perfect” angle. The closer to the perfect angle a panel is placed, the more efficient it will be and the more rays it will absorb and convert into electrical energy.
In Denmark, the optimal angle is 38 degrees to the south to achieve the greatest possible effect.
If the sun shines from an angle other than the optimal angle, it will result in a lower efficiency. This is because the sun’s rays will hit the panels at an angle that is less than optimal. This results in the panels not absorbing as much energy as they otherwise would, resulting in a lower output.
C-Si cells are significantly more sensitive to the sun angle compared to CIGS cells. In cases where the C-Si solar cells lie flat, the effect is around 80%. CIGS cells are of course also affected by the angle of the sun, but they still perform 95% when laid flat. This is because they use two layers of coatings that absorb light from all angles.
Minimal environmental impact
Our CIGS solar panels have a minimal environmental impact, as they do not emit harmful gases or substances and require less material to produce than other types of solar panels.
To produce our solar panels, we use the materials we already have on hand. Copper which we extract from cable scrap, Indium and Gallium are extracted from TVs, flat screens and mobiles and Selenide is obtained from refining quartz sand.
