Solaria Corp. announced recently that it is introducing its PowerVision-150 photovoltaic glass to the electrical and solar distributor markets.

“There’s increased demand to evolve building designs to incorporate more solar solutions, and construct, when possible, high performance, Net Zero Energy structures,” says Solaria CEO Suvi Sharma. “Buildings currently account for 40 percent of the world’s energy use—to power light, heat, cool buildings. Now architects, developers and builders can deploy solar everywhere–in skylights, windows and building facades, as well as on rooftops.”

Solaria’s solar cell process technology has allowed the company to develop vision glass that can be used in locations not typically associated with solar panels; these include skylights, patios, and window openings, providing a see-through surface that generates electricity.
