solar pv awnings

We’ve all seen solar panels mounted on top of roofs but that’s not the only place to mount solar panels. Many people have solar pv awnings in which solar panels not only generate electricity but provide shade during a hot summer day which reduces cooling loads and cuts glare. Mounting solar panels on top of awnings will increase airflow around the solar panels which allows them to operate at cooler temperatures.

Solar panels generate more electricity the cooler they operate since heat restricts electron flow. Solar photovoltaic awnings can be retrofitted into an existing building or integrated into a new building’s design. Solar photovoltaic awnings are an example of building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), a term that defines when solar panels are integrated into the shell of the building. What do you think about solar pv awnings?
