Hi everyone,

After an admittedly fairly brief scouring of the web for any obviously
available products, I was hoping someone here might be able to point me
in the right direction.

I have a 6 x 5 metre deck on the back of my house, and am going to be
putting a transparent/translucent roof over it in the near future.

What I would like to use for the roofing material is PV sheeting/modules
which capture some of the light, converting it to eletricity, and let
some of it through.

I am almost certain I have seen such a product in either a written or TV
article at some point, but I can't seem to find anything like it
available commercially at the moment.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Read the 'newbie here' thread.

I think you may be referring to titanium dye glass panels. You might
try a search in <www.caddet.org/>

I recently saw an episode on Planet Green which showed a household
pergola with photovoltaic panels on teh roof... Like you I had alsp
envisioned this as a natural fit...

So I did a little exploring.

Hope this helps!
