Question 11: Are there some data supporting that SolaRoof technology is truly working?

Yes, Richard Nelson did most of the R&D work in 1980’s and 1990’s. The following two charts showing the curves of four temperatures monitored (outside, inside, bubbles, and soap liquid tank) with a prototype greenhouse he set up in his own backyard:

Want to see how this prototype looks like? Here is a screenshot from a video:

Here is the video showing Richard’s 40 years of SolaRoof invention and projects reviewed: from 1973 to 2013

Sadly, all other parties doing either DIY or prototype tests either did not collect data as Richard did or chose not to reveal data they collected. The following chart is taken from a 2015 Master Thesis showing CO2 concentration, temperature and humudity of a large scale SolaRoof greenhouse built in Norway:

How does this large scale greenhouse look like? See below:

Since obtaining PhD in Electrochemistry in 1994, I have been through many things, such as post-doctoral research work using STM to study atomic level electrodeposition of Cd on Ag(111) surface at UIUC (Urbana-Champaign at University of Illinois), lifetime free-lance preaching, CEO of TheoLogos Publications and PyraPOD Global Inc, former salesman of diamond tools for Superprem Industries, former CEO of DiaSolid Kitchen & Bath, finishing carpenter, working for CRE Green, a solar company in Kelowna, BC. Now I have started this new business along with Richard Nelson, designing and manufacturing PyraPODs. After all these experiences, my life motto is this: sharp mind must combine with skilful hands. With my wife Margaret we have three kids - Riley, Grace and Anita.
