PRESS RELEASE: First Full-Scale Vertical Biosolar Rooftop Installed in Oslo

For immediate release

Oslo, June 26, 2023 – Over Easy Solar, a Norwegian solar startup, proudly announces the official opening of its first full-scale vertical biosolar rooftop installation on a rooftop in Oslo. This groundbreaking project, featuring the innovative VPV (Vertical Photovoltaic) unit, marks a significant milestone in the commercialization of vertical solar panels for green rooftops.

Following a successful pilot project on the same roof in 2022, Over Easy Solar has made progress in product development and manufacturing, enabling the efficient installation and a tenfold increase in the size of the installation. Leveraging the unique advantages of the prefabricated vertical PV system, the entire mechanical installation was seamlessly completed within a single day, without the need for ballast or fastening.

The collaboration and support from key stakeholders have been crucial to the realization of this extraordinary achievement. Over Easy Solar extends gratitude to Oslobygg KF and SMART Oslo for their commitment and support including pilot financing from SMART Oslo. Additionally, Over Easy Solar would like to thank Solenergi FUSen for their exceptional project management, which ensured the flawless execution of the installation.

The VPV unit's integration of vertical solar panels and green rooftops represents a pioneering approach to harnessing renewable energy and promoting sustainable living. The full-scale installation has a peak power of 45kWp and should generate up to 50 000 kWh per year, calculating based on measurements from the pilot installation from last year. The installation is ballast-free and covers a total area of about 600 square meters.

"We are thrilled to unveil this groundbreaking vertical biosolar rooftop installation"

says Trygve Mongstad, CEO of Over Easy Solar.

"This project represents a significant step forward in our mission to enable a greener, more sustainable future for urban rooftops. Our customers acknowledge that the benefits of our vertical solution for biosolar green rooftops are unmatched by any other product, and we look forward to delivering solar energy solutions to new and existing buildings in the coming years."
