Onyx Solar has executed more than 200 projects over 5 continents. And is to become the most awarded company in the photovoltaic sector.
The project was for the revitalisation of the two-million square-foot former Bell Las facility.
Onyx Solar supplied Bell Works with 5,575 square metres (or 60,000 square foot!) of amorphous silicon photovoltaic glass
The PV skylight naturally illuminates the complex while generates free, clean electricity from the sun. It offsets approximately 60 tons of annual CO2 emissions, drastically improving the building’s energy efficient and reducing its carbon footprint. As an example, the annual energy generated would provide enough power to drive 100 electric cars along 6,840km, or 4,250 miles per year.
Bell Work’s skylight features 3,200 glass units in 24 different glass units. Each is comprised of amorphous silicon thing film photovoltaic active glass, laminated between two sheets of tempered safety glass, allowing for 20% Visual Light Transmittance to reduce solar heat gain while producing energy and all while preserving Bell Work’s historical design.
Alvaro Valverde, a CABE Graduate Member, works for Onyx Solar as Business Developer. From design, to delivering the solution, Alvaro has provided support he client in all stages of the project, targeting the best business case in achieving a payback time of less than a year whilst maintaining a continuous goal to fulfil all the stake-holders requirements.
