WHAT: Come see the industry’s first solar window to simultaneously provide energy efficiency, high solar power density and optimized daylighting, in action. This PVGU, certified to UL 1703, combines Guardian’s trusted insulating glass with advanced photovoltaic technology from Pythagoras Solar. It provides up to three times the power density of other Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) glass technologies, low solar heat gain, design flexibility, ease of installation and a 3-5 year ROI. Taking advantage of a massive untapped resource, building facades, this PVGU stands to make a lasting impact on urban planning and design.WHEN: November 14-16, 2012WHERE: To see the Guardian SunGuard PVGU, powered by Pythagoras first hand, please visit booth #1301S at Greenbuild 2012, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.WHY: BIPV glass is a photovoltaic glazing solution that replaces a conventional glazing product with one that generates electricity and this market is one of the fasted growing segments in the solar industry. When combined with rooftop solar, it takes PV to the next level and enables Net Zero Buildings (NZB) on a holistic level. With the demand for NZB rising to keep up with market needs and government mandates, this is the time for innovative, cost effective, green building technologies to make a difference. Come see what green building owners and developers across the country are getting excited about and learn how the Guardian SunGuard PVGU powered by Pythagoras fully addresses the NZB challenge.
