Perovskite solar panels being deployed - maybe the first time for a commercial installation - ‘the premiere of solar sun blinds, sun breakers with perovskite solar cells on the Aliplast factory facade in Lublin. We are proud to complete the first part of the project – sunblinds with over 32 m2 of perovskite solar modules.’ https://sauletech.com/the-world-premiere-of-sun-breaker-installation/
