PHOTOVOLTAIC SKYLIGHT

 

The sanctuary Cristo de Los Milagros in Bayaguana is a work conceived for the Christian pilgrimage and attraction of the Monte Plata province.

 

Its estimated cost is around 300 million pesos. Its architecture responds to the modern style, and the structure is built to withstand earthquakes and meet other demands of advanced engineering.

 

This new construction wants to provide a more modern temple to pilgrims and parishioners and to transfer the image of the Holy Christ of the Miracles from the ancient temple. Faith, tradition, and technology come together in this new Onyx Solar project in the Dominican Republic.

 

Our photovoltaic glass will provide the Sanctuary of the Christ of the Miracles with a large cross-shaped photovoltaic skylight, which will allow the entry of natural light and the generation of clean energy.

The skylight, with a surface area of over 617 m2 (6641,33 SqFt), is comprised of 251 amorphous silicon glass modules with a semi-transparency degree and dimensions of 2,560 x 1,176 mm (8,4 x 3.85 Ft).

 

This skylight has a power capacity of 21.6 kWp and is capable of generating nearly 938,315 kWh of clean, free energy in 35 years, thus preventing the release of almost 629 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere while supplying over 1,845 lights throughout the building.

 

In addition to generating power, the glass modules employed filter up to 99% of ultraviolet radiation and 95% of infrared light.

 

These modules also have an optimal Solar Factor which enables the entry of daylight while preventing the greenhouse effect, enhancing considerably the comfort of its devotees.

 

The G value is between 20% and 40%, depending on the degree of semi-transparency.
