The University of Washington and Millersville University (Pennsylvania) will integrate Onyx Solar’s transparent PV Glass on their campus as part of their commitment to sustainability.

The University of Washington’s project, designed by renowned Perkins + Will and constructed by Skanska USA, will feature 7,000sqft of transparent PV glass manufactured by Onyx Solar in their “Life Science Building”, dedicated to R&D activities. The project is set to be completed by the end of the year.

Millersville University will integrate Onyx Solar’s transparent PV glass in the curtain wall located at The Lombardo Welcome Center, its first Net Zero Energy Building. It is scheduled to be opened in January of 2018.

These two American universities join others such as Valladolid University and George Washington University in Virginia, that are already generating their own free, clean energy thanks to Onyx’s game-changer product.

Onyx Solar will provide 605 m2 of amorphous silicon PV glass with different transparency degrees to the skylight situated at the Santuario Santo Cristo de los Milagros in the Dominican city of Bayaguana.

The Sanctuary was designed by Dominican architect Marcos Nuñez. The construction will be a place of pilgrimage that could hold up to 1,500 people.  In addition, it will have facilities for activities, training, and meditation. It has been designed to be environmentally friendly.

We look forward to seeing it finished!

COCA-COLA/FEMSA HQ in Monterrey (Mexico) integrates 400 units of Onyx Solar PV Glass in its ventilated façade. This solution improves the building’s efficiency, allows its users to see the outside and improve its aesthetics! It also protects its occupants from the extreme temperature changes.

Alfredo de la Rosa, Manager of Internal Civil Works at FEMSA, tells us about his experience with this PV façade that has allowed the building to save 35% of energy consumption.

Changing the way we think about how buildings and communities are planned, constructed, maintained and operated is what LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) does.

The first LEED building was certified in 2000. Since then, thousands of energy-efficient, green buildings have been built across the globe. Integrating Onyx Solar’s PV Glass contributes to obtain LEED certification thanks to its energy generation and Low-e properties. 

Some examples of LEED certified buildings that integrate our PV glass are the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Marriott’s Pier South hotel in Imperial Beach (California), The LUCIA building at the University of Valladolid or the Tanjong Pagar center in Singapore, between others!

Construction works keep on going in The Union National Bank, one of the main Egyptian banks, located in in the financial area of Giza, in Cairo.

The bank has decided to integrate 439m2 (4,725sqft) of solar PV glass manufactured by Onyx Solar in its façade and rooftop. The result: an amazing blue amorhous silicon façade and a monocrystalline silicon rooftop that will generate free and clean energy. We look forward to see it complete!

Onyx Solar ® takes part of the transformation of the old Coal Loader in North Sydney into a center of sustainability by supplying 64 extra-large units of PV Glass for its colonnade.

More than 60 units of Onyx Solar’s PV Glass are being installed at North Sydney Coal Loader’s colonnade. Each glass unit is 3100x1744mm (10.17 x 5.72 ft.) big and has 626Wp.

The colonnade is part of the Coal Loader Green Roof Project in Sydney, that is transforming an ex-industrial site to a place where people can learn about sustainability in everyday life, meet and get inspired!
