BIPV, or Building Integrated Photovoltaics, refers to the integration of solar panels into the building materials of a structure. This can include using photovoltaic panels as roofing, siding, or window glazing.
What are the benefits of BIPV?
BIPV may cost you nothing
Once in place, BIPV becomes a revenue center with up to 30 years of savings from system generated electricity.
BIPV reduces carbon emissions and helps to combat climate change by using a clean and renewable energy source.
BIPV can add a modern and attractive design element to a building, while also serving as a functional energy source.
Increased property value
Studies have shown that buildings with BIPV can have higher property values than those without.
BIPV has a long lifespan, with many products having warranties of 25 years or more.
BIPV requires very little maintenance, making it a low-cost and hassle-free energy solution.
BIPV possible customization

Case Study: SUNQ Head office
One example of our BIPV products in action is at our own head office. We installed BIPV panels on two sides of our building, creating a striking black façade with a total installed power of 66 kW. The results have been impressive: in addition to the aesthetic benefits, we’ve seen a 90% reduction in our energy bills and a total PV production of 40 MW every year since the panels were installed in 2019.
Take a look at the transformation in the images above. The sleek and modern design of the black BIPV panels has not only improved the appearance of our building, but it has also helped us save on energy costs and do our part for the environment.
We are one of the top distributors of solar panels and their components in the Moroccan market and the first company to offer custom solutions for solar panels aluminum mounting systems.
