Design Matters in the Solar Energy Business: Morgan Solar

By the Canadian Intellectual Property Office

Hot, sunny summer days are ideal for generating solar energy. These days are also when heat rises and glare increases. Morgan Solar, a Toronto-based company, designed a special solar panel to generate sustainable solar energy while reducing heat and glare coming in through windows, with a bonus: they look great!

Morgan Solar’s panels, called Sun Simba, are different from conventional solar panels. Sun Simba panels act as translucent sunshades that people can apply over their windows. While generating electricity, the panels block sun glare, reduce heat and diffuse light to illuminate a room.
