PPG Industries has introduced Solarphire PV glass, a product designed to maximize solar energy transmission for photovoltaic modules. Because of its exceptional clarity, Solarphire PV glass delivers enhanced transmittance in the ultraviolet/visible portion of the solar spectrum – between 350 nanometers and 1100 nanometers – where crystalline photovoltaic cells are most responsive to the sun's energy, the company says.
This clarity is the result of a proprietary glass formulation that allows Solarphire PV glass to transmit more solar energy than leading competitive products, which increases the energy efficiency of solar cells.
Solarphire PV glass is the cornerstone of a series of photovoltaic glass products that PPG will be introducing to the solar power industry. To complement Solarphire PV glass, PPG says it will continue to offer Solarphire glass in its original cerium-inclusive formulation, which maximizes the service life of solar components by reducing UV light transmission.
