The PV glass is installed on the two main façades of the building as well as in two canopies: one is attached to the façade of the building, and the other is installed in the 'recreation' area nearby.
The whole project has 670 m2 (7,211 sqft) of monocrystalline silicon PV glasses, and most of the units measure 2,000x1,100 mm. There is a 4T+4T glass configuration in all of them, and they contain bluish colored rear ceramic frit that adheres perfectly to PepsiCo's aesthetic requirements.
