Qsolar, an innovative solar technology company based in Canada, recently announced the release of some pretty interesting solar panels, solar panels that come in a range of different colors (i.e. brown, green, red, blue). The Kristal and Kristal Rainbow range of semi-transparent and colored semi-transparent solar panels were unveiled at the end of May. The solar panels are rigid and do not include frames.

“QSolar’s Kristal panels address the Building Integrated Photovoltaic Market (BIPV) which is expanding at a very rapid rate in Europe. The availability of coloured panels creates an even larger potential market for us because the Kristal panels enable architects and designers to implement a wide variety of building applications,” Andreas Tapakoudes, President & CEO of Qsolar said. “We are pleased to have received several inquiries for the new products and anticipate that the Kristal panels will successfully address the rapidly growing BIPV opportunity.”

Full range of colored solar panel options Qsolar now offers.

Qsolar’s semi-transparent solar panel family can actually replace windows, roofs in atriums, walls, and so on, a useful option for those with limited roof space

“These panels will be used in building applications to replace windows, roofs, and even walls and are designed to address structural requirements while at the same time producing electricity from the sun,” MarketWire reported.

Clearly, the solar company is targeting sub-markets that many have not ventured into.
