Solarwindow Technologies Inc (OTCMKTS:WNDW) has a 2-year trading range between $2.50 and $4.50, and WNDW stock waffles through these support and resistance areas like butter. Granted the solar sector has been unpredictable, where investors like Elon Musk have been ravaged by short sellers and industry doubters. But the solar industry will eventually be a behemoth, and companies will do everything from heat and cool residential property – to charge the electric cars they drive.
Every home in the future will have the ability be a power source, toppling the hold electric companies have on the consumer. This (energy) monopoly is ripe for disruption. Many companies will offer innovative new products, and participate in the explosive growth that will fuel and feed the next generations. The volatility in these shares must be expected as part of a longer term investment in solar power.
Solarwindow Technologies Inc (OTCMKTS:WNDW) is the leading developer of transparent electricity-generating coatings for glass windows and flexible veneers.
WNDW announced plans this week to develop electricity-generating flexible glass.
The scientists and engineers recently applied layers of the company’s liquid coatings on to Corning® Willow® Glass and laminated them under conditions that simulate the high pressure and temperatures of the manufacturing processes used by commercial glass and window producers. The result is a bendable glass ‘veneer’, as thin as a business card, which generates electricity. That’s right these windows generate electricity.

SolarWindow anticipates installing these sheets of electricity-generating glass veneers over existing skyscraper windows, turning entire buildings into vertical power generators and helping reduce their carbon footprint. These same veneers could be applied to flat and curved surfaces on automobiles, trucks, buses, airplanes, and boats to generate onboard electrical power.
“Along with our SolarWindow™ liquid coatings for rigid glass, we’re excited to expand our capabilities with brand new ways of generating clean electricity on almost any surface imaginable by using flexible Corning Willow Glass,” said John Conklin, President and CEO of SolarWindow. “As leaders in the sector, we’re setting out a clear vision for the future with this new, innovative technology.”
SolarWindow™ products are being developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA). The primary development goal of the CRADA is the commercialization of SolarWindow™ products.
“While generating electricity on flexible glass presents obvious commercial opportunities, this approach is especially attractive to high-speed roll-to-roll manufacturing for maximizing output while lowering production costs,” said Dr. Maikel van Hest, a Senior Scientist in the Thin Film Material Science and Processing Group within the Material Science Center at NREL.
SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. creates transparent electricity-generating liquid coatings. When applied to glass or plastics, these coatings convert passive windows and other materials into electricity generators under natural, artificial, low, shaded, and even reflected light conditions.
The liquid coating technology has been presented to members of the U.S. Congress and has received recognition in numerous industry publications, and the company says SolarWindow™ technology has been independently validated to generate 50-times the power of a conventional rooftop solar system and achieves a one-year payback when modeled on a 50-story building.
SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (OTCMKTS:WNDW) is not a small company at $115 million dollar market cap, and they are in the right sector. Companies like this will survive the wars being fought in solar. Most investors will come around to the benefits of controlling your own fuel source from the sun using windows, solar panels or whatever devices allows you to get the local electric company needle out of your arm.
This energy monopoly should never have been allowed to form in the first place, but wealthy entrepreneurs lobbied to convince local politicians that the public needed them to turn on the lights in the house. The only problem with this thinking is that was 150 years ago, and now we have fuel sources coming from many places and fossil fuels are ruining our environment, so the consumer looks at the electric companies as the villain, and the solar companies as the hero. As an investor, you want to bet on the hero.
