That’s not the discussion. If a home builder is pricing windows and these “solar panel” windows are 4x the cost of a transitional window, they will opt to install the standard window. Coming from someone who built their home, I couldn’t afford to install something at a 4x markup vs traditional items that late in the building process when budgets are running thin and overages are piling up.

Sounds great from the title. But I see know way windows of this nature being made as affordable as a common window just purely based on greed alone. Why wouldn’t they make them a unreasonable cost? It will end up being like solar panels today where you need a tax credit to get them and really that doesn’t help too much
