Onyx Solar®’s glass, in addition to its sustainability and its efficiency, stands out due to its unlimited range of configurations, adapting to the design of each project.

Our PV glass integrates perfectly into buildings while producing free and clean energy from the sun. It also reduces the CO2 emissions to the atmosphere!

The unlimited range of configurations, to which we can add the possibility of including different colors, finishes, shapes, sizes and thickness, make Onyx Solar the ideal partner for incorporating PV systems into the fabric of all types of building without compromising design.

COLORFUL-blogOnyx Solar rolled out a complete new full range of colored photovoltaic glass last month in San Francisco, during the 2012 Green Building International Conference – the most important sustainable building exhibition in the world, with more than 30,000 visitors-. That was the event selected to launch this new product, which allows any sustainable project to configure a customized design in any color (or combination of colors) while generating clean and free energy.

The wide range of tones and colors provides to any architectural design – curtain wall, brise soleil, skylight, ventilated façade, canopy… – a new world of possibilities to integrate photovoltaic materials into buildings. With this innovative product, Onyx Solar shows that implementing green building solutions is compatible with an aesthetic architectural design and gives an absolute freedom of choice to integrate renewable energy into buildings.

In addition to energy generation, Onyx Solar multifunctional solutions also provide other benefits to the buildings which incorporate them: Provide both thermal and sound insulation and filter out harmful radiations of natural light (IR & UV).

Onyx Solar has proven once again that is a benchmark company in the BIPV (building integrated photovoltaics) sector, always making an effort to turn customer’s will into reality. Our main objective is to meet client’s requirements – regardless of whether they are an architectural firm, a corporation or a private property – offering almost infinite possibilities of configuration for color, transparency, size and thickness.

Bordeaux Skylight by Onyx SolarOnyx Solar has participated in a historical building’s retrofit located in the center of Bordeaux for the building supervising organization of the city, the Bordeaux Métropole Aménagement (BMA). The project – along Garonne River and close to the port – has been designed by Jean Louis Montagnier and will be a business center for some of the corporations operating in Bordeaux.

Above its five floors has been placed a skylight which combines glasses with different colour gradation and various transparency degrees, supplied by Onyx Solar. They were customized to fit perfectly in the sustainable design of the building.
