ArteZanos® Receives Miami Dade Acceptance for the ArteZanos® Flexible Solar PV, Creating the First Miami Dade Approved U.S. “Solar Roof”
SANTA CLARA, California., July 6, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The ArteZanos® flexible solar PV (Miami-Dade NOA# 21-0315.05 Exp.06/24/26) is currently the only Miami-Dade NOA approved photovoltaic solar panel. The Miami-Dade NOA establishes compliance with the strictest requirements of the Florida Building Code to facilitate the permitting, installation and inspection process. Miami-Dade maintains the highest standard of product approval requirements in the country and internationally. The Miami-Dade NOA is recognized and accepted in Hawaii, Japan, South America, Guam, and the Caribbean.
ArteZanos® Flexible Solar PV gives you the choice between two different types of advanced flexible lightweight CIGS or Mono c-Si adhesive applied solar technologies in multiple dimensions. Elegant, these high-efficiency solar panels are designed to bond to various roofing substrates with incredible wind lift resistance and high impact strength, eliminating the heavy glass and traditional rack systems associated with invasive roof penetrations.
ArteZanos® Flexible solar panels can also be integrated with ArteZanos® Hybrid roofing systems (Miami-Dade NOA# 20-0908.03 Exp.05/14/23) by Florida Construction Industry Licensing Board (Declaratory-Statement 2011-60) roofers, as long as a licensed electrician completes permitted wiring and utility connections. The ArteZanos® Flexible solar PV can also be applied to new and existing 16″ standing seam metal roofing, transforming almost any Miami-Dade NOA approved structural or non-structural metal roof into a “solar roof”. There are currently more than 804 Miami-Dade Non- Structural Metal Roof NOAs for people to choose from!
The patented ArteZanos® Hybrid System is also Miami-Dade NOA approved for use with ArteZanos® “invisible”, thermal solar tubes (ArteZanos® RISA Certificate #100572) Certified by the Florida Solar Energy Center for domestic hot water use, including pool heating. The new ArteZanos® Flexible Solar PV can be combined with ArteZanos® Solar Thermal RISA to significantly utilize the total solar output, generate electricity and/or domestic hot water. Both ArteZanos® Flexible solar PV and ArteZanos® Solar thermal hot water options qualify for a federal solar tax credit of 26% on the total cost of a “solar roof” with no cap limit (IRS Form 5695) until December 31, 2022.
The ArteZanos® Hybrid System is the only true battlefield-tested “Solar Roof” mounting system that integrates photovoltaics and solar thermal, with over a decade of installations in harsh environments across the US and Caribbean. The ArteZanos® The design of the hybrid system has been tested to fire class “A” and is universal because it can be used with profiled tiles from any manufacturer, maximizing the sustainable benefits. The ArteZanos® Hybrid System is energy efficient, lightweight and is Miami-Dade NOA approved as a retrofit system for less durable existing asphalt shingle roofs, as long as they are 2001 and newer. Restoring existing asphalt shingles is extremely important as energy efficiency and resiliency must be addressed before any form of solar integration. The restoration of asphalt shingle roofs with the ArteZanos® Hybrid system reduces roofing costs, prevents asphalt shingle demolition from going to landfill, increases wind resistance, energy efficiency and curb appeal. The ArteZanos® Hybrid system pays for itself when integrated with renewable solar energy.
The ArteZanos® Flexible Solar PV was developed in a collaboration between: Floridabased on ArteZanos, Inc. and CaliforniaMiaSolé Hi-Tech Corp., a total solution provider for rollable thin film technology.
