Currently, the residential windows and doors sold with energy-efficient glass are reducing peak energy demand enough to eliminate the need for eight new 200 MW coal-fired power plants each year.
The annual CO2 emissions prevented by converting an average house to energy-efficient LoEČ windows and doors equate to the difference between the volume of CO2 emitted by driving an SUV versus a small hybrid vehicle.
Cardinal CG Company's LoE²-270® glass is the perfect glass for all season comfort. It reduces solar heat gain by 50% or more when compared to ordinary glass. Although it is a clear glass, LoE²-270 even outperforms ordinary tinted glass typically used in sunny climates. And though it's coated, LoE²-270 lets the light shine in to warm your house during the cooler winter months.
