In the exclusive neighborhood of Primrose Hill in North London, In the exclusive neighborhood of Primrose Hill in North London, designer Russell Sage created Eglon House, a magnificent modernist house that reinvents an architectural classic for the 21st century that has been put up for sale in northwest London for £ 21 million.
Eglon House incorporates a photovoltaic skylight in the upperEglon House incorporates a photovoltaic skylight in the upper floor; Photovoltaic solar glasses are fixed in the triple glass ceiling lights so that it simultaneously reduces brightness and generates energy.
This photovoltaic canopy was Onyx Solar®’s first project in the United States and it is considered to be one of the largest photovoltaic integration operations executed in the country. For this reason, it was leading news in many of the most significant journals of the sector, such as “Glass Magazine”, belonging to the National Glass Association.
The project consists of 13 units of amorphous silicon PV glass with the project consists of 13 units of amorphous silicon PV glass with an argon chamber based on a low degree of transparency. In addition to providing on-site power, they also provide natural light, ultraviolet and infrared radiation filters, and permanent protection against London weather conditions.
The dimension of this triple laminated glass for this skylight is1100X3000mm and you have a power per unit of 154 Wp.
The skylight glass goes to aluminum frames that are supported by exposed steelwork.
