Skyscrapers In Use
Solar windows are made possible with non-crystalline silicon particles called amorphous silicon. They stand an average one to four inches in diameter and are applied as a film to the glass of existing windows. Amorphous silicon gives solar panels the ability to remain flexible so they can fit to any skyscraper’s architectural needs, while still providing a weatherproof barrier to the building.
Companies participating in the solar movement are given unique opportunities to give back to the environment by saving on nonrenewable resources. Solar energy converts the suns rays into electricity with free flowing electrons in a circuit. This gives skyscrapers the opportunity to turn solar radiation from the sun into energy and then electricity. Up to 30% of the building’s power can be provided through solar cells and wind turbines on the roof.
Global warming is reduced with the use of solar energy on skyscrapers. Solar energy contains zero carbon dioxide, methane, and other emissions that are guilty of warming the atmosphere.
More companies are urged to take part in the going green and solar energy movement. If all skyscrapers were to consist of solar windows, the envi
