In developing countries, there has been an increase in the use of building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) systems in recent years. This technology is relatively new in Latin America as opposed to other countries in Europe and has not had a major impact on the building generation market, its architectural flexibility, which allows the use of different types of colored solar cells, makes it attractive for improving the aesthetics of buildings and providing demand savings. Using photovoltaic systems integrated into the building envelope instead of traditional materials can contribute to on-site energy production. Therefore, the objective of this work is to evaluate the energy production of different types of semi-transparent solar panels. For this purpose, the PVSite Photovoltaic Performance Analysis Program, a simulation tool for photovoltaic system integration, was used. The results show that in general, the last months of the year have a lower production, while the maximum production is achieved in March with a semi-crystalline panel from the manufacturer Onyx X6 producing 673.85 kWh.
