my-PV was founded in 2011 by Gerhard Rimpler and Markus Gundendorfer, two former executives of a solar inverter manufacturer. Many years of experience, idealism, tenacity, innovative spirit and professionalism are the recipe for success that has since become a significant high-tech company.

"Hot water and space heating directly from PV - it's that simple"

Gerhard Rimpler is the "mastermind" of my-PV products with 24 years of international experience in the solar industry. In addition to management positions in solar electronics, he was a member of the Supervisory Board of Oekostrom AG for many years. He also managed a solar collector manufacturer and thus knows solar thermal systems well. In addition to his technical expertise, he holds a doctorate in business administration.

Today, we go one step further beyond the provision of hot water and also make space heating solar-electric. At first sceptical, this idea is more and more successful. "Cable instead of pipes" became a trademark for our innovations.

With growth rates of 50% per year, we are very successful in the market. International sales in Europe and now also outside are the logical consequence. While many are still fighting for subsidies for photovoltaics, we offer affordable, cost-effective concepts for the use of solar power.

Our vision: "Cables instead of pipes ", integration of photovoltaics into building installation.
