Algae Panel Facade

Solar Panel Facade

More efficient than electricity and more sustainable than wood, algae is ideal kindling for producing heat, especially since it can be grown on-site. Moreover, the water in which the algae grows also collects solar energy, providing an additional supply of heat.

Energy collected from the photovoltaic solar panels can be used for the Vertical Farm and the rest of La Escocesa. Solar power cells convert sunlight into electricity, using the energy of speeding photons to create an electrical current within the solar panel.
