PHOTOVOLTAIC ENERGY CAN ALSO BE BEAUTIFUL. VERY BEAUTIFUL!

Photovoltaic-Façade-OnyxSolar

 

Bursagaz, one of the main companies in the natural gas sector in Turkey, has opted for integrating Onyx Solar®’s photovoltaic glass in its new headquarters, which has obtained the LEED Gold certification.

 

Onyx Solar® has provided the building with a touch of originality by integrating a double skin of photovoltaic glass in the form of a mosaic, which is superimposed on the façade. The 315 amorphous silicon glass modules, measuring 500 mm x 700 mm, have a degree of transparency of 20% (L vision), enabling the uniform passage of light into the building and thus reducing the need for artificial lighting, as well as filtering out harmful UV and IR radiation.

This is a 4.1 kWp installation, generating approximately 3,400 kWh per year, to be used for building’s self-consumption, preventing the release of CO2 as well as other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
