SolarWindow provides update on production of electricity-generating glass

Published 07 September 2017

SolarWindow Technologies provides an important update on the manufacturing, marketing and product fabrication targets for its electricity-generating products for tall towers and skyscrapers.

This update provides further details about the company’s key in-place and planned initiatives for the upcoming quarters and follows on the heels of its recently announced production agreement with Triview Glass Industries LLC, an award-winning custom fabricator located in suburban Los Angeles.

Consuming almost 40% of all the electricity generated in the U.S., at a cost of over $140 billion, commercial buildings are ideal customers for the company’s electricity-generating windows. SolarWindow™ products could reduce electricity demand by 30%-50% in tall towers and provide a one-year financial payback, according to independently-validated engineering modeling.

“Our first goal was to invent transparent liquid electricity-generating coatings for commercial use,” states Mr. John Conklin, President and CEO of SolarWindow Technologies. “Now, our goals are to turn those inventions into fabricated commercial products and bring those products to market in order to turn entire buildings into vertical power generators.”

SOLARWINDOW PRODUCTION AGREEMENT

SolarWindow has entered into a Process Integration and Production Agreement with Triview Glass Industries, LLC, which will serve as the company’s regional glass fabricator.

With its state-of-the-art plant, producing twelve specialty glass product lines, Triview is the company’s first-ever production site.

Important goals and features of the Agreement and SolarWindow partnership with Triview include:

Integration of SolarWindow coatings and methods into the Triview manufacturing processes;

Fabrication of specific SolarWindow™ electricity-generating products at commercial scale, at Triview;

Development of any patents, intellectual property, and new inventions or discoveries will be owned by SolarWindow; and

Existing processes at Triview are highly-adaptable to the development of new SolarWindow™ product lines, especially those featuring tempered, laminated, and insulated glass products.

Triview manufactures a wide variety of architectural and decorative glass products using specific production methods and processes which support the fabrication of SolarWindow electricity-generating glass.
