The Economic Case for BIPV

BIPV is unique as a building material as it provides a return on investment. For marginal additional initial costs BIPV performs the same functions as well as, if not better, than standard cladding materials but also provides a return on investment in the form of free renewable electricity for the building making BIPV an attractive economic investment.

Economic benefits of Polysolar BIPV glass
BIPV reduces the amount of electricity used within a building and saves on the cost of purchasing electricity from the mains leading to huge economic savings.

In addition to the money saved through producing renewable electricity on site there are additional incentives through government subsidies.

Buildings are taxed based on the amount of carbon used in their operation and construction, BIPV greatly reduces this amount and produces huge savings on the amount paid in carbon-tax.

Aside from the aesthetic value afforded by BIPV it helps to showcase a company's green credentials giving a competitive market advantage.
