Hello Ramana,
   I do not have direct answer but perhaps I might direct you where to look for (http://www.solardecathlon.de/index.php/press-room/kontakt/) or perhaps try considering different approach where PV cells are installed onto shutters 
  German team won Solar Decathlon competition in 2007 by combining  passive house design techniques + PV shutters.
  Hope this might help.
  Thanks, Sasa
  P.S. My appologies for cross posting!

  Dear All,

We're looking at using shading (overhangs on windows to the south) integrated with PV for a commercial project. The current product we're looking at seems very  low on efficiency due to the density of the solar cells on the shading surface. Can you suggest a product you've worked with and consider worth recommending?

Any opinions/experiences on using products ready for use Vs custom designing such a system?
