Electronics giant Sharp will release a transparent solar panel at the end of the month according to a report in Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun.

According to a report in today's Asahai Shimbun, Sharp officials said the solar windows will go on sale from next Monday and will cost between JPY200,000 (US$2,010) and 250,000/m2.
The report stated the panels will come in two transparencies with the darker of the two models generating more energy.
