SolarWindow enters agreement for production of electricity-generating glass

COLUMBIA, MD. (AP) - SolarWindow Technologies, Inc., developer of electricity- generating windows for tall towers and skyscrapers, has entered into an agreement for the fabrication of SolarWindow products with suburban Los Angeles-based Triview Glass Industries, LLC.

The prospect of generating electricity on commercial buildings, which consume nearly 40 percent of all electricity generated in the US, is made possible when transparent SolarWindow electricity-generating liquid coatings are applied to glass surfaces.

As the company’s select regional fabricator in North America, Triview Glass will work to fabricate specific SolarWindow electricity- generating glass products at commercial scale by integrating the technology into its manufacturing processes.

Commercial buildings are ideal customers for electricity-generating windows, which could reduce electricity demand by 30 - 50 percent and provide a one-year financial payback, according to independently-validated engineering modeling for a 50-story building.

“I’m proud that we are the fabricator for this innovative electricity-generating glass technology by SolarWindow,” stated Alex Kastaniuk, President, CEO and Founder of Triview Glass Industries, LLC. “It’s especially rewarding to apply my 52 years of specialty glass experience to the fabrication of this brand- new innovation.”
