I've been using OS 2.4.0. I have already installed a PV panel on my model through Sketch Up but I want to add a transparent PV on a window is that possible? Also how can I change the dimensions, transparency and pick power to a PV using OS?

It might be helpful to define "PV"

You can try building a basic space will will auto define walls ceiling roof ect. Change the Construction to air boundary or glass or whatever your transparent module is made of. Define that it touches the window or another air boundary in the hole you cut in the wall.

I'm not sure about the solar blocks at all, but you might be able to find a measure of something in the Building Component Library (BCL) I think to help your project.

I'm very new at OS so I hope this helps...
