This 8 kWp DC installation is made of see-through medium transparency of Amorphous Silicon Photovoltaic Glass, which promotes natural light inside the building while preventing heat gain. Each glass panel measures 2,134x1,575 mm (84"x62"), and comes with a 16 mm (31/50") Argon spacer to provide additional insulation.

 

  

 

PHOTOVOLTAIC SKYLIGHT - US NATIONAL NUCLEAR SECURITY ADMINISTRATION

 

 

 

Established by Congress in 2000, National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) is a semi-autonomous agency within the U.S. Department of Energy responsible for enhancing national security through the military application of nuclear science. 

 

The 330,000-square-foot John A. Gordon Albuquerque Complex (appointed as the first NNSA Administrator in 2000) will be adjacent to Kirtland Air Force Base and is expected to meet LEED Gold standards. It is an office complex that houses 1,200 NNSA staff members who ensure nuclear safety in the U.S.

This is not the first project executed for the U.S. Federal Government, through its various departments. The Photovoltaic canopy for the U.S. embassy of Jakarta, in Indonesia, and the Photovoltaic Skylight at Rota Naval Base, in Spain, are two good examples of how the U.S Federal Government is implementing renewable energies sources in its facilities.
