SolTech Fasad is a solar cell facade that replaces traditional facade materials. SolTech has, together with its cooperation partner Sapa Building Systems, developed a façade framework for attaching solar cells that will be launched at the Nordbygg convention on April 10, 2018. One of the advantages of this solution – in addition to its esthetic merits – is that the investment cost incurred for the solar cells is recovered within only two years, since the price per square meter is only marginally higher than a traditional plaster paneled facade. The alternative, i.e. installing solar cells outside the surface of an existing facade, is significantly more expensive, making the time-period required to recover the solar cell investment significantly longer.
CEO Frederic Telander Comments:
– Ever since SolTech was first created and built on the strength of its own resources, we have – together with our partners – developed products. This solar cell attaching solution for SolTech Fasad is an example of one such product that has emerged through our productive cooperation with Sapa and Hydro. We see, without question, great potential for this product that is not only strongly competitive economically but, at the same time, also very attractive, esthetically.
SolTech Fasad SolTech Fasad is a ventilated cold facade made up of solar cells that are attached within an aluminum profile framework. It replaces other building materials, such as: brick, sheet metal, plaster or façade panels. And since the solar cells are also the façade, the investment in the solar cells is a supplemental cost in relationship to the cost of investing in a traditional façade, with a very short investment recovery timespan, calculated on the basis of the monetary return on the electricity produced. SolTech also produces special fitting-components that make possible installation on an existing building, regardless the surface and appearance. SolTech Fasad has an installed effect of 100 – 123 Wp/kvm, dependent the color chosen, from an available selection of gray, green, terra cotta, blue, bronze, yellow and black.
