We’ve have seen numerous sustainable building facades installed with colorless solar panels. But Emirates Insolaire LLC, a pioneer in the development and application of unique solar technologies and a joint venture of Dubai Investments PJSC [DI] and SwissINSO Holding Inc., wants to add some color to tedious solar panel deigns.
Therefore, the firm has created remarkable Kromatix- the world’s first colored solar panels installed on a building in Lausanne, Switzerland. The entire solar paneled installation is worth AED 850,000 (approx. US $231,422) and can generate enough energy for two families of four people each. Each colored solar panel can generate over 150-watts electric power per square-meter on roofs, or above 110 watts per square-meter on facades.
The colorful photovoltaic installations will not only provide off-grid energy to the residence, but also add aesthetic charm to the entire building structure. This clearly means that these are both aesthetic as well as functional in appeal, which is why demand of these hued solar panels is constantly increasing. As per upcoming demand and enquiries across the globe, Emirates Insolaire is expecting sales over 50,000-square meters for these colored solar panels in 2015 alone.
