Read the full story in the San Francisco Chronicle.

A lot of sunlight hits tall office buildings, only to go to waste.

Their relatively small roofs don’t offer much space for solar panels. A solar array crammed onto the top of a typical office tower could produce, at best, a tiny fraction of the electricity the building and its tenants need.

Pythagoras Solar in San Mateo has developed a window laced with solar cells, a window that generates and saves electricity at the same time.
