Busick Insulated Glass and Radiant Glass Industries provide new heating alternative for residential and commercial applications Denver, Colorado-based Radiant Glass Industries (RGI) and sister company Busick Insulated Glass have collaborated to develop a revolutionary product that is not only energy efficient, it is energy generating.

Using Power*e™ Glass designed and developed by RGI, Busick manufactures insulating glass (IG) units that use safe, low voltage DC power to warm the inside of the glass pane – creating a system that is nearly 100 percent efficient.
According to Mike Tibbitts, Busick’s general manager, all Power*e windows are built with Edgetech’s Super Spacer® to ensure the long-term durability of these unique IG units.
“At the core, Power*e IG units are proven, energy-efficient window systems that meet and exceed industry standards,” Tibbitts said. “And because the investment in radiant-heated glass is higher, long-term durability is extremely important to help protect our customers’ investments. That is one of the reasons why we use only Super Spacer in Power*e units. It is a proven performer, both in terms of energy efficiency and durability.”
According to third-party testing, Power*e Glass uses up to 40 percent less power than conventional heating systems and is practically 100 percent efficient because of its combined insulating value and radiant-heating capabilities.
“Power*e adds to the overall warmth and comfort of a space,” Tibbitts said. “By touching the glass pane, you can feel the warmth of the thermal barrier created by Power*e; however, the electric current flows safely and invisibly.”
RGI works with developers, architects, engineers, contractors, glazing companies and other specialists to produce and install Power*e products suited for each application.
A Case Study in Comfort: The Campbell Residence
The Keystone ski area is one of Colorado’s most picturesque locales, attracting droves of snowmobilers and skiers each year. In 2007, one of Keystone’s residents lost her original home in a fire. Local companies, including Busick, immediately came together to help her rebuild the “Campbell Residence.”
“Gas is not available in the area, so electric heating has been the only option,” said Gino Figurelli, plant manager for Busick. “To help reduce heating costs, the home was designed to be heated solely by our Power*e windows.”
The 2,800 square-foot home has 33 windows, 19 of which are Power*e. The windows contain temperature sensors and are controlled by a thermostat.
“It’s what we call an intelligent technology,” Figurelli said. “Even in the coldest months heating bills are generally below $100 per month. The homeowner is so happy with the savings and the comfort of Power*e. She owns a restaurant and is considering adding Power*e to augment her existing heat source there. It’s a versatile product that can be used in both residential and architectural applications.”
