Solar Windows

By: Deputy Johnson

New Energy Technologies is developing a new Solar Window Technology. This technology enables see through windows to produce electricity by spraying the window with the world's smallest known organic cells. These cells measure to be 1/4 the size of a grain of rice. For the first time ever, scientists have successfully developed eco-friendly compounds onto glass to collect the solar electricity. Before now scientists could only produce electricity collecting devices with limited or no transparency. In regular solar power collecting devices there has been metal, which is not transparent. This important breakthrough replaces visibility-blocking metal with environmentaly-friendly and more transparent compounds.
