Solar photovoltaics have come a long way since the Bell labs in 1954. People are finding all kinds of amazing applications and Soltech Energy in Sweden just installed a 646 kilowatt BIPV, (building integrated photovoltaics) on the side of a parking garage that also includes 300 electric vehicle charging stations.
This installation highlights the many opportunities for clean energy to be used in designing aesthetically pleasing, yet productive solar installations in our daily lives.
There are 1,096 red, blue, orange and green solar panels in the installation.
We’ve installed some cool building integrated PV systems, but nothing this colorful. Last year, we installed a 20.88kW system for the Tulalip Tribe at their new Gathering Hall which compliments the large wood beams and aesthetics of the building by providing shelter and electricity. The view from the Gathering Hall out to Tulalip Bay is spectacular.
