window inside panel mount? Answered

can you mount a solar panel in front of a window but on the inside?

or does it need to be on the outside? can the argon gas that's in between the 2 window layers interfere with the charging?

You may place a solar panel behind a clear material, but it's charging may be reduced slightly because of wavelengths of light reflected or absorbed by the material which don't make it through. Glass blocks UV, for example, but UV light is not used by solar panels either. Some amount of visual light is cut down by the window as well, since it is somewhat reflective.
