2 years is the necessary time to recover all of the investment in a photovoltaic curtain wall in cities like Cancun


The generation of free and clean energy together with the energy savings from the passive properties of our photovoltaic glass, allows you to recover your investment in 3 years in places like Los Angeles or Mexico City.


You only need 4 years in cities like Barcelona, Lisbon, San Francisco or Miami. Even in cities with worse weather conditions like New York, Munich or Milan, you still have very attractive payback periods (5 years).

Check out the following link to see the payback period of your city.

Onyx Solar’s Low-e photovoltaic glass has received the winning award to the most innovative glass product by Glass Magazine and the National Glass Association of the US

This glass not only produces electricity, but also matches and sometimes surpasses the properties of conventional low-e glass.

Using our low-e photovoltaic glass, our clients enjoy savings of up to 90% in their electricity bill. With this amount of savings in cities like Los Angeles, the investment is amortized in only 3 years with annual average yields of 40%. Even in places with extreme weather conditions like Alaska, savings can be of up to 30%, and investing in our solutions allows our clients to obtain an annual profitability of 22%.

In the following link you will be able to check out the savings and profitability of our solutions when applied to your building.

Can you imagine securing the price of kWh with discounts of up to 90% for the next 30 years? With Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass is possible!


Using Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass allows great savings in the electricity bill. In cities like Los Angeles, Barcelona, New York, or Stockholm those savings range from 75% to 90%.


For example, if you use our glass in Los Angeles you will only pay a fixed price of $0.02 kWh, way below the current price ($0.16 kWh), and in Barcelona you will go from paying $0.26 kWh to $0.03 kWh. You will stop worrying about electricity hikes for the coming years.

This is a free online course aimed at architects so they may learn how to design using our photovoltaic glass


AIA CESAfter the recent launching of our free photovoltaic glass course, there are now many architects and designers that have successfully completed it.

With this course you will be able to learn the properties of our glass, its applications, the constructive solutions, specifications, etc. You will also learn -free of cost- how to design your buildings with our photovoltaic glass, and if you are an AIA registered architect, you may earn AIA credits.

Onyx Solar keeps its continued commitment to innovation, and together with 22 other large companies became part of the Industrial Platform of the International Research Center in Critical Raw Materials for Advanced Industrial Technologies

ICCRAMICCRAM was born as an initiative of the University of Burgos to encourage increased cooperation between universities and private companies in research and European projects for critical raw materials (TV, cellphones, batteries…) that have to be improved, optimized or substituted.

The presentation of this platform coincided with the celebration of the “International Days in Critical Raw Materials” that took place last month in Burgos (Spain) and where Onyx Solar intervened as speaker.

The new Bursagaz office building will have a unique photovoltaic glazing façade


Bursagaz, one of the most important Turkish gas companies, will have a new headquarter which is aiming to obtain the LEED Gold rating.

Bursagaz BuildingOnyx Solar is responsible of developingoriginality in the design by superimposing a mosaic double skin onto the façade. The glass, featuring crystalline silicon, will have 20% transparency, allowing homogeneous light into the building and reducing the need of artificial lighting. In addition, the company Sunvital Enerji will carry out the installation of the photovoltaic glass in this façade.

Adhering to the Bursagaz corporative strategy of developing innovative projects that contribute to a more sustainable future, this project exemplifies one of many reasons why Bursagaz is well accepted in the market.

We are currently developing a unique project in Denver, Colorado, with theNorth American constructor GH Phipps.

This pyramidal shaped building, composed of hexagonal photovoltaic glazing in crystalline silicon, has been a new challenge for Onyx Solar.

Photovoltaic solar energy is now equally or more competitive than the wind and the fossil fuel energy


Photovoltaic SkylightIn countries such as Spain, Chile, Brazil and Uruguay, photovoltaic energy is already producing electricity at a cost of 0.07 €/kWh. Even in Dubai this cost has been reduced to 0.05 €/kWh.

The latest analysis “Actual cost and photovoltaic future” by German Agora Think Tank, estimates that this cost will reach 0.041 €/kWh by 2050.

Incidentally, in Germany on last Wednesday, the favorable climate condition had yielded a record setting solar energy production, whose energy was distributed nationwide through the grid system.  At the rate of -0.001 €/kWh, the people were able to consume electricity for free for the duration of 2 hours.

Francisco Valbuena, architect of the Architectural Technical Unit at Valladolid University, talks about his experience with Onyx Solar


“Onyx Solar has been a preferential technologic partner in the development of our project developing a highly innovative solution such as the photovoltaic skylights.These are very attractive systems for the sustainable building and LEED certification”, said Francisco Valbuena.


The LUCIA building at the Valladolid University has been designed to become a “Net Zero Energy Building” where all the energy sources are renewable. Besides generating clean energy, Onyx Solar photovoltaic skylight will allow natural lighting while filtering UV radiation, reducing CO2 emissions, and providing thermal/acoustical insulation. All of these characteristics have contributed in winning the LEED Platinum rating for the building.
