1. An electrochemichromic cell comprising:

  • spaced plates, each having an inwardly facing conductive surface;

    an electrochemichromic solution located in said cell between said inwardly facing conductive surfaces, said solution comprising;

    a solvent;

    a redox chemical pair in solution in said solvent which colors in the presence of an applied voltage and which bleaches to a colorless condition in the absence of an applied voltage;

    said solvent comprising from at least about 5% weight by volume of a nonpolymeric material having a volume resistivity of at least 5×

    109 at 25°

    C. and dielectric constant of at least 15 at 25°

    C. and 60 hertz.
