Costa Rica Solar Solutions proudly announces a new partnership with Mitrex.
Costa Rica Solar Solutions (CRSS) is always seeking new alternative solutions in the solar industry. Mitrex – Integrated Solar Technology, is just that and strives to be an “innovative company that has a mission to be the catalyst that accelerates the adoption of sustainable, energy-generating, human-made structures”.
Mitrex has developed ways for aesthetically pleasing solar panels to be directly integrated into building facades. Revolutionary building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) systems offer architects, engineers, building owners, and investors the opportunity to embrace and profit from solar energy without compromising aesthetics.
Take Advantage of Your Vertical Surfaces
Mitrex, envisions a world where solar energy is generated by any surface touched by the sun. CRSS believes this is the next step in a energy independence, not in the future but now.
Mitrex BIPV fulfill any aesthetic desire, building efficiency need, or safety requirement. In urban areas, traditional rooftop solar panels offer poor design choices and are limited by roof space.
Mitrex BIPV products include solar facades, glass window, roof, siding, greenhouses, railings, and more. These systems have frame less modules, hidden mounting, homogeneous surfaces, and can feature the appearance of any material or color for matching purposes.
What does Mitrex offer?
Providing up to 350W of power per panel, Mitrex Solar Siding harnesses solar energy to provide electricity back to your home.
Applied on the exterior vertical walls of your homes, Solar Siding extends energy generation to any surface that has access to sunlight. Suitable for new builds or retrofits, Mitrex Solar Siding can be incorporated into new or existing walls without compromising aesthetics.
Mitrex Solar Siding is created with efficient monocrystalline solar cells that allow homeowners to reduce their reliance on carbon-emitting energy from the grid. A customizable tempered glass facing layer masks the appearance of solar cells by recreating typical building materials with a patented coating process, and a high-strength aluminum anodized frame allows for easy installation.
All the wiring and conduits are seamlessly hidden behind the panels during installation and incorporate zero-emission infrastructure into your home and become one step closer to a green future.
Colored Solar Roof
Colored Solar Panels
Aesthetics & Energy, The Best of Both Worlds
With Mitrex Solar Roof, you are no longer limited by the aesthetics of traditional solar panels.
Solar shingles are colored solar panels by Mitrex, designed to resemble traditional roofing materials, such as asphalt and slate shingles. Basically, this allows for visual integration with the roofing material. Moreover, this technology allows the modules to blend into the roof with a seamless pattern. In short, the result is a uniform and aesthetically pleasing roof.
These patterned colored solar panels feature UV-stable, fade-resistant colors. This guarantees an attractive, energy-generating roof for many years. More importantly, Mitrex Solar Roof is maintenance-free as they have anti-soiling coatings that reduce the accumulation of dust and dirt on the modules’ surface.
Mitrex balances design with efficiency. Although the color-treated glass affects the efficiency of the solar panels, the energy output of the system is maximized while maintaining a beautiful aesthetic.
Mitrex solar railings guarantee strength, durability, safety, and beauty. The application options are boundless; As long as the railing has access to sunlight, solar energy will be passively generated and supplied back to the structure. The railing system can also be customized to meet the desired aesthetic; from the level of transparency to the tint of the balcony glass to the metal handrails and posts, a wealth of options are available to suit any design.
Mitrex solar railings consist of high-efficiency solar cells sandwiched between a front layer of heat-tempered, laminated glass and a back layer of either glass, back sheet, or aluminum honeycomb. Depending on the desired aesthetic, solar technology can be either monocrystalline silicon solar cells or thin-film. The solar cells are entirely integrated into the railing system, as well as the wiring and circuitry. The solar glass is code compliant and conforms to all safety and durability requirements.
The advanced building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) system makes for invisible solar energy generation that can be incorporated into any design. You can even choose the transparency and color of the glass, the arrangement of the cells, and the handrail and post design. The railings are made with high-quality materials and feature a 25-year product and performance warranty—guaranteeing long-lasting, aesthetic solar balconies.
Mitrex offers opaque solar glass in solid colors or patterned options. This solar technology is suitable for spandrel panels on high-rise facades and seamlessly generates energy while matching the structure’s aesthetics.

Energy-Generating Solar Greenhouses
Mitrex Solar Greenhouse is an ideal alternative compared to conventional greenhouses as the integrated Mitrex Solar Glass can supplement the high energy requirements of the structure.
Mitrex provides owners with the opportunity to generate enough green energy to grow sustainably by supplying Solar Glass for their buildings.
Depending on your greenhouse needs, you can choose from various solar options, such as opaque, semi-opaque, or transparent Solar Glass, available in varying thicknesses and sizes. A Solar Greenhouse allows owners to generate energy from existing infrastructure without sacrificing the overall effectiveness of the greenhouse operations.
CRSS is very excited to offer the next generation of solar solutions such as Mitrex products. Please contact us for a customized solution!
