Solar Balustrades in Zurich

2018-05-08 • By Daniel MacKay

Today, my friend Radek is getting new photovoltaic "balustrades" -- that is, the vertical panels at the edge of the balcony, at his apartment in Zurich.  The buildings were spaced and placed to minimize shadowing, and tall trees have been replaced by shorter ones (since this photo was taken.)

The wires are hidden under the deck, and the module is sandwiched between two strong glass plates.  Residents are not allowed to hang anything from the railing.

Here's a description by the developer, mentioning hat the solar modules are only going on the south side.

These are possibly the modules.
