A Spectrum of Efficiency: Solar Skylight Illuminates the Future

The product in question is EnFocus Engineering’s Diamond-Power panel—a high-tech module that’s one part skylight, one partsolar panel. Offering building occupants a real alternative to artificial lighting, the Diamond-Power panel can control the sun’s power more efficiently than any skylight on the market while utilizing the sun’s full range of light better than the average solar cell. “In many situations people have plenty of daylighting, but they don’t switch the electrical lights off so there’s no savings,” says EnFocus’ President and Chief Technology Officer Jason Lu. “The point of our product is to provide a good lighting source so people actually can leave their electrical lights off.” THE POWER OF DAYLIGHT Even when it’s not being used to create power, sunlight still has an abundance of potential. After all, what better source of free, nonpolluting lighting is there...
