The photovoltaic glass of Onyx Solar is at 140EUR/sqm after installation. This means a great economical advantage compared to other conventional materials such as phenolic (148EUR/sqm), natural stone (152EUR/sqm) or porcelain (200EUR/sqm) according to CYPE
The photovoltaic glass is the only building material that pays for itself over time by generating electricity during its lifespan.
Other advantages of photovoltaic façade include homogeneous transmittance of light into the building, reducing the need for artificial lighting, and enhancing the comfort level of the occupants. Furthermore, the thermal insulation properties of the photovoltaic glass on the façade accomplish energy savings up to 50% compared to a traditional façade.
