Edgehog solar panels - Edgehog solar panels feature ultra-transmissive, self-cleaning cover glass technology, delivering up to 25% gains in annual power generation.

Thanks to its nanostructure, the Edgehog glass cover for solar panel is able to reduce energy loss resulting from light reflection especially during evenings and mornings.

While technological advances in the solar field typically focus on the efficiency of the solar cells, significant energy loss resulting from the glass cover is often neglected. Edgehog cover glass addresses this need via its anti-reflection, wide-angle and broad-spectrum technology, boosting energy production especially when the sun is low. Edgehog cover glass features superhydrophobic, self-cleaning properties, maintaining the performance of panels over time and minimizing the operational costs associated with cleaning. Integrable into newly manufactured solar panels or existing solar panels, Edgehog is a very versatile solution to optimize solar energy production, whether it is for terrestrial or spatial application.
