Onyx Solar has signed on for what it calls the largest project of photovoltaic integration in Africa announced it will supply its photovoltaic glass with Privida and Sterling Bank. This project involves remodeling the bank’s headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria, with Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass.
According to the company, it will supply up to 6,500 square meters of crystalline silicon photovoltaic glass to be installed over the building’s spandrels.
The installation of 3,250 crystalline silicon glass units implies up to 1 MWp of installed power, substantially reducing greenhouse gas emissions and its ecological footprint, according to the company.
In addition, Onyx Solar says it will also install photovoltaic glass for Microsoft’s headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass was previously integrated into I&M Bank’s headquarters in Nairobi, which led to constructing the largest photovoltaic skylight in Africa. This skylight is made up of 2,200 square meters of amorphous photovoltaic glass with different degrees of transparency.
