Also known as photovoltaic glass, solar energy glass refers to a specialized type of glass that is built to generate electricity directly from sunlight. With solar panel glass, you have a glass option that essentially incorporates solar cells or thin-film photovoltaic materials into its structure, allowing it to harness solar energy and directly convert it to electricity.
Customized Solar Glass
Custom Fabrication Services
The solar cells or photovoltaic materials integrated into solar energy glass can be based on different technologies, such as crystalline silicon, thin-film amorphous silicon, or emerging technologies like perovskite solar cells. These technologies determine the efficiency, transparency, and aesthetics of the high solar energy absorbing glass.
With GLAShern, you will be able to jump on this trend easily, taking advantage of our custom solar glass. And, with our broad range of glass options, you won’t need to worry about flexibility or versatility.

Common Uses of Solar Glass
Solar glass has found different applications in the past few years, including:
Building Integrated Photovoltaics
Solar windows are used in the construction of buildings as skylights, facades, or canopies. These integrated solar panels can replace traditional building materials, such as regular glass or cladding, and generate electricity from the sunlight that falls on them.
Solar Panels and Modules
Solar energy glass is also used to manufacture conventional solar panels or modules. In this case, the glass serves as the protective cover for the solar cells, providing durability and allowing sunlight to pass through to the photovoltaic materials beneath.
Solar energy glass is utilized in greenhouse structures to provide both natural lighting and renewable energy generation. It allows plants to receive sunlight for photosynthesis while harnessing excess solar energy for electricity production
Solar Street Furniture
●Solar energy glass can be incorporated into street furniture like bus shelters, benches, or streetlights. These installations harvest solar energy during the day to power lighting, charging stations, or other functionalities.
