Solar Windows – another view of the Clear Future

Solar panels have traditionally been installed on roofs, whether it’s a home or business. As solar technology continues to develop, unique and cutting-edge designs are emerging. One such technology is the idea of a solar window. A solar window consists of clear glass or plastic, sometimes flexible, typically installed in high-rise buildings. They generate electricity like traditional panels but over a clear, see-through surface. This technology allows for solar to be installed in even more unique places. Imagine if your car had a glass ceiling that allowed for a great view and helped charge your car battery while driving. Or perhaps cell phone screens could be made of this material, allowing you to charge your phone while you use it. Regardless of the application, solar windows appear to be an exciting addition to the future of solar!
