Our photovoltaic glass has reached the southernmost city of the planet.
The high efficiency of our photovoltaic glass enables it to generate nearly 5,000 kWh of clean, free energy from the sun, with a peak installed power capacity of 8.6 kWp, even in the city nearest the South Pole, in the Chilean Antarctic.
This is a photovoltaic glass whose cell density was totally customised, in accordance with the client’s design, to allow the entry of daylight. In this way, the glass, which incorporates monocrystalline silicon cells, features a degree of transparency of 70%, enabling the passage of a large amount of light into the building while generating sufficient energy to supply 300 lights for 4 hours each day.
