ClearVue Technologies will deliver solar glazing to System USA of Watsonville, California, for a greenhouse project expected to provide approximately 82 kW of solar power and produce an estimated 107,000 kWh annually.
Operating for over 42 years, System USA is a leader in green housing solutions in North America. This greenhouse build will be eligible for incentives created by the Inflation Reduction Act lowering annual operating costs. The greenhouse will use ClearVue’s single pane glazing laminate developed by ClearVue in conjunction with research partner D2Solar.
“Greenhouses have been an integral part of our strategy from Day 1 as we understood the growing global need for renewable energy solutions for sustainable agriculture. We are thrilled to work in partnership with System USA, a company setting the modern global standard for excellence in efficient greenhouse facilities. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with System USA as we progress discussions for them to become a U.S. distributor for ClearVue,” said Martin Deil, Global CEO, ClearVue Technologies.
The California project builds on the success ClearVue has had with previous solar greenhouse projects, including the Murdoch University R&D Greenhouse in Australia, operational since 2021, as well as the greenhouse constructed at Sendai Ignis resort in Japan by ClearVue licensee Tomita Technologies.
“We are very excited to work on our first ClearVuePV greenhouse project. Having closely evaluated this technology, we’re particularly pleased with the recent advancements that have made it exceptionally appealing. We have full confidence we will achieve robust energy generation and efficiency with ClearVue’s greenhouse glass solutions,” says Peter Fryn, President, System USA.
This agreement marks a significant step in ClearVue’s mission to revolutionize sustainable agriculture and contribute to a cleaner, greener future. This announcement follows several significant milestones for ClearVue, including the co-development agreement for single-glazing and double-glazed IGUs with D2Solar, the demonstration of mass-scale manufacturing, and the company’s inclusion of greenhouse solutions as one of its priorities to achieve short- and long-term revenue growth.
