TORONTO — Mitrex, a Canadian solar technology manufacturer, is launching Solar Brick—a solar-integrated facade solution designed for use as brick wall cladding that transforms a building into a renewable power plant. Mitrex Solar Brick facades reportedly boast up to 330W per panel while recreating a traditional masonry brick look.
Mitrex’s newest project features an installation of their Solar Brick made to match the existing brick facade on the post-war era building. The installation features a 59kW system size spanning over 4,000SF.
Mitrex specializes in building-integrated solar products (BIPV), including solar facades, glass, roof panels, and more, with a vision of incorporating solar technology onto every exterior surface on a structure without altering the looks or design.
“Our mission is to transform how we build our structures—electrically-powered buildings are a logical and sustainable solution to combat climate change,” says Mitrex CEO Danial Hadizadeh. “With our products, everyone can contribute to reducing emissions while constructing buildings with materials that last for generations. There is no compromise for builders, architects, or homeowners.”
Mitrex solar facade features:
- Advanced manufacturing methods to maximize efficiency and functionality, made in Canada
- Utilize patented coatings with anti-reflective and anti-soiling propertiess
- Various backing options that allow for the panels to be incorporated on any structure
- Low embodied carbon of the solar materials, efficient energy generation, and contribution to LEED points to help builders achieve net-zero
