Mcdonald’s First Zero-emission Restaurant Thanks To A Spanish Photovoltaic Glass Coating

McDonald's first zero-emission restaurant thanks to a Spanish photovoltaic glass coating

McDonalds has covered the entire structure of its new zero-emissions restaurant in the US with photovoltaic glass from Onyx Solar.

192 units of crystalline amorphous silicon glass of 291 W / unit with a gray finish, with a total installed power of 55.80 kWp.

Located in Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, Florida, the McDonalds chain has opened its new restaurant after 9 months of renovations and modernization, its first zero-emissions restaurant in the USA, thanks to the technology of the Spanish company Onyx Solar.

The main material of this project is the Onyx Solar photovoltaic glass, which they have used to cover the entire structure of the building, combining it with vertical gardens to absorb CO2.

Conventional photovoltaic solar panels have also been installed in the car parks, as well as a natural ventilation system: an automatic system of shutters that open and close depending on the humidity and the outside temperature, achieving considerable energy savings.

Inside the building, there is an area specially dedicated to the sustainable characteristics of the project, where users can see videos of the project carried out by Ross Barney Architects, technical details and how technology can help us fight against climate change.

Photovoltaic glass at McDonalds

We are so proud to supply our photovoltaic glass to the First Zero Emission Restaurant of McDonald’s! Located at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando (Florida), McDonald’s wanted to have a restaurant with 100% green energy, with no CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, and efficient. To achieve this, they used Onyx Solar photovoltaic glass, with which they have covered the entire structure in combination with vertical gardens to absorb the CO2 already present in the atmosphere. ☀????????This is an installation of 192 units of 291 Watt / unit crystalline silicon glass with a gray finish, which means a total installed power of 55.80 kWp. McDonald’s has wanted not only to create a building that is zero-emission and that uses 100% clean energy, but also to educate all those who make use of it. Inside, users will be able to watch videos about the project, carried out by Ross Barney Architects, as well as techniques and changes they can make in their lives to help in the fight against climate change.
