Solar energy is an abundant source of renewable energy that has the potential to meet our growing energy demands while reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. However, one of the challenges of solar energy is that it can be affected by temperature, with solar panels losing efficiency as they heat up. Fortunately, a new technology called cool tops is revolutionizing the way we think about solar energy systems.
Cool tops are a type of solar panel that has a unique cooling system built into them. The system consists of a layer of water that is circulated through the panel, absorbing the heat that would otherwise cause the panel to lose efficiency. The water is then pumped through a heat exchanger, where the heat is transferred to a separate system for heating or other uses.
The benefits of cool tops are clear. By keeping the solar panels cool, they can maintain their efficiency even in hot weather, which can make a big difference in areas with high temperatures. For example, a study in California found that cool tops could increase the energy output of solar panels by up to 20% in hot weather conditions.
Cool tops can also help to extend the lifespan of solar panels. Over time, exposure to heat and sunlight can cause wear and tear on solar panels, leading to a decrease in their efficiency and, ultimately, their lifespan. By keeping the panels cool, cool tops can reduce the wear and tear caused by high temperatures, thereby extending the lifespan of the panels.
Another benefit of cool tops is that they can reduce the amount of water needed for cleaning solar panels. In traditional solar panel systems, dust and debris can accumulate on the panels, which can reduce their efficiency. To clean the panels, water is typically used to rinse off the debris. However, with cool tops, the water used to cool the panels can also be used to rinse off any debris, reducing the amount of water needed for cleaning.
In addition to these benefits, cool tops can also be more aesthetically pleasing than traditional solar panels. Because the cooling system is integrated into the panel itself, there is no need for unsightly pipes or tubes to be visible, creating a cleaner and more streamlined appearance.
While cool tops are still a relatively new technology, they have already shown great promise in improving the efficiency and lifespan of solar panels. As the demand for renewable energy continues to grow, technologies like cool tops will become increasingly important in ensuring that we are able to meet our energy needs while minimizing our impact on the environment.

I really appreciate Neetu ma’am and the panache Team for giving us a perfect solution to the heat related problems we experienced.
Before the application of cool tops, the temperature level on the store was 52 ° C, but after the application of Cool tops there seemed a reduction in surface temperature by 4 ° C, the temperature in the area where I sit was 40 °C which has reduced to 37 °C, there is a substantial difference in the ambient temperature, Since last 4-5 months I’m not reducing the temperature of my AC below 28 , Even at 28 I couldn’t keep it for long as the room becomes cooler so I keep for few minutes and turn it off . I really appreciate Neetu ma’am and the panache Team for giving us a perfect solution to the heat related problems we experienced.
The result after applying cool tops from panache is you can see the smiling faces of our team after applying the coating system from panache .
This was an old shed so we had a direct roofing installed, no Insulation. We were very much clear after the discussion with Panache team that we should go for cool Tops coating instead insulation so the result is you can see the smiling faces of our team after applying the coating system from panache #GoGreenwithCoolTops
We took the temperature measurement of outside and inside premises. We noticed a good amount like you can say minimum 6 to 8 Deg C temperature difference.
Looking at the Indian climatic condition during summers, where the temperatures were going too high and whenever it goes up to the peak level, the temperature in the factory shop floor rises affecting the efficiency of the workers. We had a thought in our mind that is there any way to control the temperature, then we came across the Panache company and got in touch with them, after explaining them our problem they came to visit our factory. The team is very committed and technically competent to give us the exact solution for the temperature reduction at the factory. We noticed minimum 6 to 8 °C temperature difference. Thereafter, we received positive feedback from the workers so we decided to go ahead with another project in our office premises. As far as execution is concerned, Panache are experts in this domain. They even contacted us after completion of our installation and ensured that we were satisfied with the workmanship. If someone really wishes to reduce temperature in their premises, I would highly recommend Cool Tops coating from panache – I wish them best of luck for their future projects!
Their prices and services are definitely worth the solution given & treatment done with complete transparency.
I have hired Panache services for the waterproofing & Cooling Treatment on one of the roofs of Parul University premises. Their prices and services are definitely worth the solution given & treatment done with complete transparency. I can definitely recommend them to organizations & people looking for thermal comfort along with waterproofing solutions also.
Totally satisfied by the service received.
I am very impressed by their work on how they provide customized solutions for every problem we have & every task they take up.
The Indoor Temperature has decreased to almost 5 °C. Cool Tops provides Cool Buildings without ACs.
In one of our projects, we had a requirement where AC was not viable and people working under that premises were very much disturbed. To solve that problem, we have consulted Panache for the solution. Panache has provided the full proof solution and after the completion of the Cool Tops Installation, we were much relieved. The indoor temperature has decreased to almost 5 degrees. I could say Cool Tops provide Cool buildings without AC.
The experience for the quality of products with consistency is very appreciable.
I am an engineer & contractor taking turnkey projects. We have used Panache’s various waterproofing products & I recommend Panache's Cool Tops, the special 5 coat system which gives thermal comfort with sustainable performance. The experience for the quality of products with consistency is very appreciable.
I really appreciate their efforts for perfection & sound knowledge of the technology.
We have met the Panache Team from one of our friend’s references who have already taken the services. I must say, they are very professional in what they do. I really appreciate their efforts for perfection & sound knowledge of the technology.
A Cool Roof coatings consists of a binder (usually an organic compound or silicone compound) blended with pigments and other additives to provide two main benefits: protection of roof membranes for longer roof life cycles; and reflectivity of solar radiation, for lower air conditioning costs.
The main components of most Cool Roof coatings are the binder, pigment, water and reflective pigments. Water serves as a liquid carrier, which provides viscosity, allowing the pigment and binder to be spread on the roof as a thin coating. The majority of white coatings in use today are water-based coatings
An energy efficient , white, reflective, elastomeric coating manufactured by Panache can reflect up to 92% of visible light, keeping the roof surface much cooler than with aluminum, black, or non-reflective roofing materials. Lower temperatures mean less energy usage, and translate to money saved. Elastomeric roof coatings protect the roof substrate adding years to your roof, plus saves against costly tear-offs and re-roofing.
