the sun is strong enough to let solar panels shine | Breaking News

The Netherlands might be known for wooden shoes and beautiful flowers yet Michiel Mensink went a different direction. His start-up Exasun will make the nation known for its sunlight based panels. Since Michiel and Jan Jaap van Os established Exasun in 2012, they've created solar panels that are no less than twice as strong as customary sun powered panels, produce more electricity for less money and they look better.

The Dutch sun is strong enough for roofs to generate electricity

Made in the Netherlands

Sustainability has always been a passion for us," says Michiel, who has known Jan Jaap since meeting him in college more than 20 years ago. "Our objective was to make panels that make solar panels less expensive than the use of coal. The considerable thing is that we're near that goal now." Presently Exasun will have the capacity to step up its production five-fold on account of a multi-million-euro investment from 2 Dutch banks and a Dutch government innovation fund.

"Exasun offers a stylishly and monetarily appealing answer for putting homes and structures in the Netherlands and Europe on more sustainable footing." Other than solar panels, Exasun makes solar rooftop tiles. These come in dark and orange-red and can be introduced between existing rooftop tiles, which is normal for Dutch homes. 

Another item is a whole sunlight based board rooftop, utilized as a part of recently fabricated homes. These are both more proficient and more pleasant looking options for customary solar panels. The whole rooftop is comprised of Exasun's sun based panels. "Current sunlight based modules are regularly somewhat ugly," said Michiel. "Our items have a greatly improved appearance, you don't see they're sunlight based modules. They additionally last longer than some other modules, as they're more robust against flame and hail."
It took four to five years of innovative work to get this head begin, said Michiel. Presently, Exasun will utilize the venture to present a completely mechanized production line in the not so distant future, with a five-fold increased production capacity. The capacity will be scaled up more thisyear, 2019. "I trust Exasun will turn into a commonly recognized name in Europe for individuals who need the best answer for sun oriented on their rooftop or building."
