Pythagoras Solar’s advanced BIPV products improve building energy efficiency generate solar power and offer architectural design benefits to increase return on investment and real estate value and advance Net-Zero Energy Buildings (NZB). By leveraging patent-pending optics high-efficiency crystalline silicon advanced materials science and simulation software the company delivers the industry’s first transparent high power density PVGUs. The first products are designed to replace curtain wall windows and skylights. The combined energy savings and energy generation enables a payback term of less than five years. Pythagoras Solar’s Photovoltaic Glass Unit (PVGU) - or more simply solar window - uses optical technology high-efficiency silicon and advanced materials to provide the industry’s highest transparency and highest density PV power generation in a standard double-pane window form factor known in the industry as an insulating glass unit (IGU). The PVGU leverages the modularity and ease of installation of the IGU; it is designed to meet advanced building codes and standards can be optimized for a variety of uses and is expected to be eligible for incentives due to its energy and environmental benefits. The first products are designed for curtain wall and skylight applications and can be optimized for elevation location and climate zone.
The combination of energy savings and energy generation provided by the PVGU allows the product to pay for itself in less than five years.; Proven record of commercial use
