The thing about most solar panels is that they would usually hinder a person’s views, depending of course on where they would be installed. While some would be placed on rooftops to get a better view of the sun whose rays are the focal point of it all, Sharp seems to have come up with something better with these see-through solar panels which you can easily mount by balconies or windows.
The panels are tinted in black but are actually semi-transparent. Each panel is made from laminated glass infused with photovoltaic cells where each one will deliver a solar power conversion efficiency of about 6.8-percent and a maximum output of about 95 watts.
The panels measure about 4.5-feet wide by 3.2-feet tall and are only 0.37 inches thick. When attached to a window or balcony railing, it will double as a heat shield, blocking sunlight that might otherwise lead to increased indoor cooling costs.
