Energy Generating Skylights
VELUX Modular Skylights
Not only do our skylights provide plenty of daylight and ventilation, but the modularity of the system ensures minimal material waste during production, and the integrated photovoltaics generate energy. The VELUX Modular Skylights consist of a high performance composite, exclusively developed by the VELUX Group. The material offers excellent insulation properties equal to wood, provides the strength of aluminum and delivers the thermal stability of glass. Altogether, the material makes it possible to exert a very slim frame design, which maximises daylight inside the building. As a special option for Green Solution House, one third of the modular skylights have been fitted with integrated photovoltaics. The cells produce electricity equivalent to what is required for 2 homes per year – and offer pleasant shading from the sun during the summertime.

There are 196 VELUX Modular Skylights at Green Solution House, 68 of which have integrated PV cells. The 98 m² of photovoltaics produce approximately 7077 kWH per year.
