There's a picture of a window in Organic Valley's office building, to the right, and another photo, below, shows how the windows look from the outside. The built-in grid in the windows captures direct sunlight to generate electricity while also diffusing the rays so building occupants get the benefits of the light, as well as the advantages of a curtain wall that helps insulate the interior, making it cooler during hot weather and warmer during cold spells. As a result, the windows provide green power while also reducing the amount of energy ...
