Example: installation in public building, Shanghai, China

  • This example shows an installation of 4,000 square meters on 3 walls and the roof of a public building.
  • It is based upon actual statistics in Shanghai, China, as for sunlight availability throughout the year.
  • The alternative costs are the costs that would have been paid (to the hydro-electric company) without the BIPV installation.
  • Thanks to the BIPV, own production of electricity saves the building around US$ 50,000 every year!
