Ideal for skylights, patio and deck covers.
Anyplace you would like to let some light through the panels.
These panels can be integrated into a building so that they capture sunlight for electricity, but still allow about 15% of the light through.
This provides good ambient lighting while providing some cooling by shade.
These can be added on to existing or new construction, but often are best when designed in from the start of new construction.
People who watch what their neighbors are doing may soon find themselves looking right through an energy-producing transparent glass solar panel, if the folks at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory are on the right track.
The lab has produced a transparent photovoltaic module that is 14 times bigger than its last attempt.
Researchers are working to capture the sun’s rays more efficiently and turn them into electricity, using a see-through solar panel no thicker than a plastic grocery bag.
