America would need to find a space the size of Rhode Island just for wind turbines if it were to run on natural power alone. But what if we didn’t need that much space?

Solar glass will let us turn every window into a source of clean and natural energy. Every building window, car door, patio sliding door, and bus terminal wall has the potential to capture energy already beating down on Earth every day.

The beauty lies in how much glass we already use. We can phase in solar glass without making any significant changes to our infrastructure or lifestyles. Who knows—we might even be able to power our phones this way, given enough time.
