Onyx Solar has completed a new project in Pennsylvania, USA. In this case, the Lombardo´s Welcome Center.
Millersville University has chosen Onyx Solar’s PV glass for the curtain wall of its new building. It will be a beautiful project which will become Millersville's first Net Zero Energy Building.
FEASIBILITY STUDY OF AMORPHOUS SILICON PHOTOVOLTAIC SKYLIGHT IN NEW JERSEY
Reduction in HVAC energy demands
Internal Rate of Return
- Total Area - 823 M2
- Electricity generated in 35 years - 95,387 kWh
- Total lighting points operating 4 hours per day in 35 years - 187 lighting points
- CO2 emmisions avoided in 35 years - 64 CO2
- Barrels of oil saved in 35 years - 56 barrels
We will supply Black opaque amorphous Silicon double pane glass for the curtain wall, which can turn the building into a Positive Energy Building.
With this project, the University of Millersville is entering a more sustainable future.
The building generates its renewable energy to run its systems and devices. Most buildings draw electricity from the power grid to turn on lights, devices and provide heating and air conditioning, however, the goal of the Lombardo Welcome Center is to achieve this by using renewable solar energy.
Beyond its sustainable design, the Lombardo Welcome Center is also visually striking, with large glass windows that let in plenty of sunlight, an open and spacious architecture that invites visitors to the interior.
