Our practice is to run the interior lighting...no problem in hot days when the is a surplus of PV energy, but the "trouble & strife" has this thing about it being un-natural.

I have not been able to find Skylights that will pass light in the visible wavelenth range WITHOUT admitting infrared..which is not welcome in an un-airconditioned building on a hot day!

Anybody got any ideas on this?

REGENCY skylights in brisbane make a double glazed sky window in various sizes. I fiited 2 to an extension i did at our house at 1200mmx800mm no heat problems at all.
