Onyx Solar has participated in the reconstruction of the San Antón Market, located in Madrid city center, where a 168 sqm photovoltaic skylight has been installed. The structure has been designed with sawtooth form and is made up of 54 semitransparent photovoltaic glass of 2,5×1,2 meters. The atrium has 6 kWp installed power and will generate about 8.000 kWh a year. Even more, the atrium designed by Onyx Solar will avoid the emission of 5 tons of CO2 a year.
The new building will replace the iconic Market of San Antón and will host a traditional market, but it will also incorporate a commercial zone with several shops. And the photovoltaic skylight installed has a transparency of 20% so it will allow daylight to illuminate the market.
The Project has been completed shortly after the conclusion of the genomic center in Granada, Spain, where Onyx designed a photovoltaic ventilated façade; and the same month the company has confirmed its first project in the United States.
