Just to add to Wally's compelling "do not obstruct windows" suggestion: Another reason is that artificial lighting close to the windows can be arranged & controlled to only come on when the lumens of the natural day light goes to too low of a level. This is what we have done as we are installing our new LED lights. We already had a very precise light level sensor with a relay switching output ... so just using another set of relay contacts allows for the energy savings with no loss of actual usable lumens. It was a very straightforward implementation. To be able to see in is also better for a gain of safety to our customers; from my perspective.
