Solar PanelYou probably know that I LOVE solar panels and solar power, especially rooftop solar. That’s because we can create power without using up any additional land. But this doesn’t really work in higher density areas, with taller buildings, and more occupants. But what if we could create entire walls and buildings, even windows, that produce solar power? That’s where the idea of building-integrated photovoltaics come in. And unlike residential buildings, commercial and high-rise buildings use much more expensive cladding, so solar-producing replacements, are way more cost-effective too. This is a look at the future of Building Integrated Photovoltaics, and it’s pretty amazing!
