PV glass generates power, emits daylight

Onyx Solar Energy SL’s crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar photovoltaic (PV) glass generates optimal power in locations exposed to lots of direct sunlight. It has a peak power of 14.4 watts per square foot and, when exposed to direct sunlight, produces more power than the company’s other PV glass type, amorphous silicon (a-Si) PV glass. It is available with opaque, clear or colored glazing. C-Si PV glass is installed similar to conventional glass with an electrical PV system. Solar cell density can be varied from low to high to change the amount of emitted daylight. Applications include canopies, curtainwalls, floors, guardrails, skylights and walls.
