The solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) is the measurement of how much solar radiation passes through the glass in a window or skylight. Ratings based on the solar heat gain coefficient help determine the energy efficiency of the window or skylight. The lower the SHGC, the less heat the window (or skylight) allows to pass through it.
