Typically the technology of solar glass makes use of a photovoltaic coating that can give various levels of transparency and that changes solar power into electricity. Onyx solar is a good example used to explain this technology. Onyx produces highly transparent glass of various colors and sizes. The solar glass panels are made in a way such that they can filter radiation that is both ultraviolent up to 99% and infrared up to 95%. Therefore, they can protect from possibly harmful radiation.Additionally, they generate electricity and provide thermal radiation. Furthermore, it also focuseson Roi which make it an advantageous technology. Solar glass technology differs with the traditional solar PV in that panels are built into the building rather than being mounted on. There exists a relationship between aesthetics and functionality.Polysolar solar glass products are thin-film modules which have been around for a few years.
