The photovoltaic sunshade has the dual function of regulating brightness and temperature in rooms and directly transforming solar energy into direct current electricity thanks to the photovoltaic effect.
It also provides excellent shading and maximum transparency as well as high energy efficiency in a wide range of climatic conditions. Running costs are kept to a minimum as the renewable energy source is free of charge.
