The system, "T-Green Multi Solar," features a high conversion efficiency, functions such as daylighting, commanding view and heat shielding/insulation and good design. At the time of disaster, it functions as an emergency power source.

This time, the two companies commercialized two type of the system. One is "Solid Type," which uses solar panels as exterior panels, and "See-through Type," which realizes transparency by using stripe-shaped solar panels integrated with glass windows.
