Onyx Solar is the world’s leading manufacturer of transparent photovoltaic (PV) glass for buildings. PV Glass is used as a building material plus as an energy-generating device, capturing the sunlight and transforming it into electricity. It is made of two or more panes of heat treated, safety glass, and it provides the same thermal and sound insulation, and natural light as a conventional architectural glass. Thus, it is installed in lieu of conventional glass on building facades, curtain walls, atriums, canopies and terrace floor, among others.
By providing the same thermal performance as a conventional glass, along with clean, free electricity from the sun, buildings can drastically improve their energy efficiency, decrease O&M costs, and reduce their carbon footprint.
OUR GLASS IS
PV Glass generates free and clean electricity, thanks to the sun.
PV Glass lets natural light in; it also provides thermal and sound insulation, and filters 99% harmful UV radiation, and up to 95% IR radiation.
Our PV Glass works as a revenue-accelerator, since it is the only building material that pays off! Enjoy long term energy savings, tax credits and incentives.
It can be customized in shape, color, size, thickness, and semi-transparency degrees, easing its integration within any project and design.
EASY TO INSTALL
Our photovoltaic glass is installer-friendly. From a mechanical standpoint, its installation is performed the same way as installing conventional glass. Then, the electrical installation works in a similar fashion as a conventional PV installation. It’s all about a little bit of coordination between MEP trades.
