Office skylight uses PV-powered SageGlass(R) products to improve comfort, view, energy-efficiency without heat, glare

Every summer for more than 10 years, a big, blue tarp would be draped over the top-floor skylight at Connecticut’s 100 W. Putnam office. This summer, the tarp and aging skylight have been replaced with a dynamically responsive, elegantly designed, photovoltaic (PV) powered system featuring SageGlass(R) products.

“Every May up until now, the building owner would cover one of the best features of the space, blocking the unwanted solar heat and glare so the tenants wouldn’t roast and could see their computer screens. This helped save a little on the air conditioning bills, but they lost all the natural light and views,” says Gilbert Ohls, president of Landis Hall, Inc., a construction management company based in Greenwich, Conn.
