It’s been 13 years in the making, but Pleotint LLC based in West Olive Township just north of Holland, Michigan has released a windows innovation with a promise to limit the effect of the sun’s ray’s on your home or business. Pleotint president Harlan Byker has developed “thermochromic” windows, harnessing the sun's heat to cause a chemical reaction that darkens window tint as the sun grows hotter. Attached is an article on this innovation from Crain’s Detroit Business Magazine where you can read more on this technology and the up and coming company. Also note that Pleotint received a competitively award grant from DOE to help fund its initial technology development. More recently, it received a competitive award from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) to co-fund a large scale demonstration to provide validated field measured energy savings data. Please, read on!
