The 1st solar PV building: main structure completed

May 08, 2008

The main structure of the 25-storeyed mansion, China's first solar PV (photovoltaic) building, was lately completed in the city of Baoding in China's northern Hebei Province.

The building will serve as a landmark for the country's new energy and energy equipment industry base. By applying large-sized breathable glass screen to its outside appearance, the building can generate 0.3 megavolts of electricity, tantamount to a mini-sized power plant, which will not only satisfy the needs of electric lighting for the building, but can be annexed with the power grid for electricity generation.
