Polysolar is an award winning UK technology company developing and manufacturing transparent photovoltaic glass for application in building integrated windows, facades, roofs lights, shelters, carports and greenhouses, etc.
The roof garden pavilion of the Willmott Dixson Healthcare Campus incorporates 36 Polysolar 20% light transmission bronze-tinted 95Wp PV glass laminate modules, delivering some 3000kWh of free electricity each year (enough to provide the annual electricity requirements for a small UK home) as well as providing a dry and shaded seating area.
Ideally suited for integration into buildings the Polysolar PV glass is a substitute for traditional construction cladding materials making the incremental cost negligible, while delivering the environmental performance requirements of a building both from the carbon free electricity generation and thermal control properties of the PV glass.
The Polysolar PV glass works at lower light levels, so making it less position dependent and ideally suited to the UK climate. It also perform at higher temperatures, so can be incorporated into a building structure without additional ventilation. It also operate at higher voltages, reducing electrical losses and making it less shade sensitive. In addition Polysolar’s transparent modules uniquely work from both sides giving the product exception versatility and value. MCS certified for UK Feed-in-Tariffs, Polysolar’s frameless 1.34m2 PV glass modules come with a 5 year product and 25 year performance warranty, offering simplicity in installation and unlimited design possibilities.
