Aplus Energy Debuting Solar-Integrated Steel Roof Panels At METALCON


Vancouver, British Columbia - Aplus Energy Co., a Taiwan-based developer with North American sales and support offices in Vancouver, will be introducing its unique solar-integrated steel roof panels to attendees at the upcoming METALCON trade show, being held October 12-14 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

Aplus solar-integrated steel roof panels use patented lamination technology to infuse crystalline silicon solar cells directly onto the surfaces of the roof panels, eliminating the need for any rooftop mounting system. The patented lamination technology not only increases the rate of solar cells by a 20% more efficiency rate, but its low glare makes it possible to use near restricted areas like airports. The panels though are suitable for use on everything from carports to manufacturing buildings.

According to Aplus, its metal roof sheeting has built-in solar power generation capability. Solar cells are laminated directly to the 22 gauge roof panel, providing significantly better resistance to moisture penetration and fatigue stresses compared to typical soft-backed solar modules. This rugged 22ga. steel panel is a complete solar module, compatible with existing solar equipment and wiring. Each panel includes wiring and connectors to reach the adjacent panels.

The panels are lightweight, durable, impact resistant (handle most hail storms), low glare and are easily installed. They come with safety features, like blocking diodes to keep current from reversing into the solar panels.

Aplus Energy was founded by pioneering members of the solar industry and based in Taiwan. The company core expertise on creating technical innovations for solar module from development and manufacturing through quality assurance to sales and service. They supply these patented solar panels in many countries where the demand for solar power in the roof covering is emerging. Product highlights are as follows...


• Mono-Crystalline silicon solar cells laminated directly to metal sheets.
• Pre-painted 55% Al-Zn Alloy- coated steel for outdoor use.
• Bypass diode is attached minimize power reduction cause by shade.
• Light weight and easy to install.
• Avoids the expense of racks.
• No roof penetrations.
• Long-term durability and stain resistant.
• Aesthetically superior in design.
• Synchronized PV and roof warranty,10 years limited warranty of 90% and 20 years limited warranty of 80% power output.
