Project Description: Concentrated Photovoltaic System

Team HT (Helio-Tech) will be designing, constructing, and testing a prototype window module that contains solar cells to allow for both transmission of light as well as electrical engergy generation. Furthermore, the design will incorporate 3 M Brand Prestige Film to incresase the amount of the energy that the cells produce. This Building- Integrated PhotoVolaic(BIPV) window module will replace either vertical windows or skylights in residential and commercial buildings.
