WHAT ARE SOLAR WINDOWS?  

You have probably heard of solar panels, devices that collect energy from the sun transform it into electricity that you can use. But have you heard of solar windows? Solar windows work just like solar panels, except they serve the dual purpose of windows. You can choose to remove your existing windows and install solar windows instead, but some people choose to simply buy solar film to adhere on their existing windows.

There are a few types of solar windows already available on the market. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, read on to understand the advantages that it can offer you.

TYPES OF SOLAR WINDOW

As already mentioned, you can choose between full solar windows or just a photovoltaic film. Some solar windows are made by inserting solar panel cells in between panels of glass. Though you can see the solar cells when you focus on them, your eye is able to pass over the cells when you gaze outside.

Other types of full solar windows are built using photovoltaic glass. Small wires that you cannot see harvest the energy that is produced by the glass, moving it into the energy grid. Thin-film technology is utilized to put a thin lining of photovoltaic onto the conductive glass layer.

These films give home owners the ability to convert their normal windows into windows that can collect solar energy by adhering the film onto the inside surface of the window. These thin sheets are largely made up of organic materials: carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, and oxygen.

BENEFITS OF SOLAR WINDOWS

 Most people hesitate to get full-sized solar panels because of how much space it takes and how unattractive it often looks. With solar windows, your home can produce at least part of its own energy while not taking up any extra space.

Metropolitan areas in particular can take advantage of this technology due to the amount of vertical window surface area. Solar panels would not be as effective because there is often not a lot of roof space. Solar windows would greatly reduce the demand that large cities place on energy resources.

Photovoltaic films are great choices, too. Since it is easy to adhere the film to windows that you already have, there is not as much waste compared to if you purchased full solar windows.

Additionally, photovoltaic films are thin and light, meaning that it does not take much energy to produce and ship them. Experts say that these films should offer warranty that lasts a quarter of a century – pretty close to what solar panels currently offer.
