Acralight International Skylights is truly integrating solar electric generation into building design by incorporating light transmitting solar panels into our core structural skylights and canopies. Instead of a racked set of solar panels added onto a building, we have created a beautiful, large expanse of structural skylights that not only transmit passive natural light into the building structure but also collect solar energy as well. And these systems are uniquely designed for ease of installation and maintenance. This is true BIPV (Building Integrated Photo Voltaics), no longer just solar panels added to the roof.
