Onyx Solar has been recognized as the best photovoltaic glass manufacturer, this time by the Clean Energy Awards hosted by Global Energy News magazine.
The publication has lauded the innovative character of our photovoltaic glass, the efforts made in research and development, and Onyx Solar’s ability to adapt their product to the requirements of the most demanding clients.
This award joins the more than 30 accolades received by Onyx Solar in just 7 years of history. A new acknowledgement that evidences Onyx Solar’s leadership in the field of photovoltaic glass for buildings.
A curtain wall built with Onyx Solar®’s glass in the USA is 22% less expensive than a system built with a conventional low-e glass
The total cost for a curtain wall built with Onyx Solar®‘s glass is 88 $/ft2, in the USA. Only 10% higher than a curtain wall built with conventional low-e glass. Moreover, any installation that includes Onyx Solar´s photovoltaic glass qualifies for the solar investment tax credits (ITC) that can be claimed on federal corporate income taxes for 30% of the total cost of the photovoltaic curtain wall.
Therefore a curtain wall with Onyx Solar®‘s glass has a real cost of just 62 $/ft2, 22% less expensive than a system built with a conventional low-e glass that is not able to generate electricity during the next 30 years.
In addition to its outstanding properties and its aesthetic integration in buildings, Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass benefits from multiple incentives to photovoltaics and renewables
Building owners in countries like the USA can benefit from incentives to photovoltaics, in addition to the 30% tax credit. Incentives like the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS), which allows them to depreciate 85% of the investment cost in 5 years, with a 50% bonus for the first fiscal year. It allows building owners to deduct 18% of the system cost in their corporate income taxes for the first fiscal year.
Onyx Solar’s glass also benefits from other incentives at the state and local levels. More information available at the incentives database: www.disreusa.org
Onyx Solar©’s glass is able to completely offset all the energy demand for indoor climatization
Onyx Solar© produces the first and only transparent glass capable of generating free and clean energy from the sun on-site. Its outstanding passive properties insulate the buildings both termically and acoustically, greatly decreasing the energy demand for climatization, while filtering harmful solar radiation.
Considering that buildings account for 38% percent of global CO2 emissions and 73% of electricity consumption, Onyx Solar©’s glass is positioned as the main ally to reduce the carbon footprint and energy costs within buildings.
Onyx Solar©´s photovoltaic glass proves to be a highly profitabile investment
Onyx Solar© ’s glass is able to offset most of the energy demand for indoor climatization of buildings, and drastically reduces the electricity cost down to 0.01 US$/ kWh, during the next 30 years.
This leads to an average IRR of more than 70%, while the IRR of investing in solar farms rarely surpasses 10%, and an average payback period of less than 2 years, just a few months in the USA. Check in our ROI Map the Feasibility Studies of a photovoltaic glass solutions in your city.
Onyx Solar meets the highest international quality standards
The International Certification Network (IQNET) and the Spanish Association for Standardization and Certification (AENOR) have certified that Onyx Solar has implemented and maintains a Quality Management System that meets the goals of the ISO 9001:2015 standard and an Environmental Management System that meets the goals of the ISO 14001:2015 standard.
These agencies recognize the excellence of Onyx Solar in the design and production of photovoltaic glass, as well as in the design and development of projects with photovoltaic glass solutions for architectural integration.
