Sea-Green Solar Glass Covers 25,000-Square-Meter School In Denmark — 12,000 Solar Panels

Sea Green is possibly the most soothing calm color of the entire color spectrum. Imagine how wonderful it must be to be encompassed and surrounded by 1,200 sea green solar arrays as a student at C.F. Møller-designed International School Nordhavn in Copenhagen. It is cleantech magic informing the architecture — not only soothing to the eye but refreshing to the student’s mind and body as the solar panels produce clean energy and keep the air cleaner while adding to the building’s aesthetic.
