Solar WINDOWS!

Friends, today’s post is short and sweet. =)  Look what I found…. Solar Windows!  

This is such a great idea for tiny houses….well for anyone but specifically for tiny houses since they are mobile dwelling units.  If the windows were solar panels then that’s one less thing a tiny house would have to think about before loading up and moving locations.  I think it’s a win-win!  Only negative is that they stick out from the house profile so keeping the travel size within legal limit might be an issue.  Road legal tiny houses max sizes must be below 8′-6″ W, 13′-6″ H, and less than 45′-0″.

What do you think???
