NEW RECORD ON ELECTRIC GENERATION FOR NOVARTIS’ PHOTOVOLTAIC SKYLIGHT

Due to the high quality of the photovoltaic glasses added and the excellent installation performed, allow the system to produce 17% more than estimated, thus the skylight is producing 328.000 kWh/year facing 272.000 KWh/year calculated.

It’s been a year since Onyx Solar completed the execution of this project, the largest glass photovoltaic skylight in the world. Its 2500 m2 of photovoltaic glass are part of the new Novartis Pharmaceuticals’ headquarters in New Jersey, United States.

According to William De Pasquale, Turner Construction Project Manager, “it was a turnkey project developed really fast; Onyx Solar did an outstanding job and finished product despite the complicated weather conditions. I do recommend counting on this firm for highly specialized in Building Integrated Photovoltaics solutions.“
