About Onyx Solar 

Why use Onyx Solar Glass 

Our Glass Produces Energy......Now, Does Your Building Glass Do That?

The solutions replace conventional materials such as glass or ceramics for a constructive material with photovoltaic properties in ventilated façades and roofs, curtain walls, skylights, non slip PV floor, etc.

The idea is to incorporate photovoltaic properties to building envelopes to allow to them to produce clean and free energy from the sun from an aesthetical and feasible point of view.
Multi-functional Building Integrated Photovoltaic Solutions Allow The Following:

entry of natural light
provide both thermal and sound insulation
they filter out harmful radiation (absorbing ultraviolet and infrared radiation)
produce clean, free energy thanks to solar power
avoid CO2 emmisions 
feature an innovative, customised design which can be integrated perfectly into any type of building
