Following the start of commercial production (and a name change) late last year, smart window maker View announced on Tuesday that it’s raised another round of $60 million led by glass giant Corning, and including Khosla Ventures and GE. The company, formerly called Soladigm, has now raised around $185 million over its lifetime.
View makes windows that can tint on demand using an iPhone app or control panel. The technology used for View’s windows is called “electrochromic,” which means a low-voltage electrical current is applied to the window to change its color to reflect or absorb light. The tinting effect can cool or warm a room, and save energy by cutting down on air conditioning or heating.
