Does a color of a greenhouse matter?

Hi, I would like to ask whether a green fiber glass is as good as a clear (no colour) fiberglass for a greenhouse? The matter is that the green fiberglass costs much less for some reason.

The link below is to a clear fiberglass greenhouse. I suspect that the roof of it is made from a green fiberglass.

Here is a link that might be useful: Clear fiberglass greenhouse

Plants don't use too much green for photosynthesis, so the color is not as much of a concern as the % of light transmission - you want as much of that as possible in the fall-winter-spring.
