White Solar Modules can blend into building's appearance.

November 4, 2014

White solar modules combines solar cell technology, which converts IR solar light into electricity, and selective scattering filter, which scatters entire visible spectrum while transmitting IR light. Modules employing this technology have no visible cells or connections. Technology can be applied on top of existing module or integrated into new module during assembly on flat or curved surfaces. Consumer goods applications are also possible.
