170 kWh of electricity per m2 per year
As real as Nature
You can't believe your eyes. It's not wood, but it's as good. Replicating a wooden façade is quite simple. And you won't see a thing wrong with it.
We usually start from a picture of a real wooden facade and print it onto the glass. We use the same colouring technology as for our SolarTerraⓇ tiles, i.e. ceramic pigments which we vitrify at over 800°C in the glass. The image of the wood is printed in high definition on the glass. This technique makes it possible to maintain a very high level of transparency. This is important because behind the glass, we place high efficiency photovoltaic cells that generate electricity. Our secret is to master this complex and somewhat contradictory equation. Giving colour to our products while ensuring maximum transparency. The glass we use is matt and does not create reflections. The "material" aspect of the wood is impressive.
