Solar panel arrays for homes are nothing new, but more often times than not, they are an eyesore to say the least, that is unless…you’re talking about SolarGaps Solar Window Blinds. These smart blinds track the sun throughout the day, automatically adjusting their position to the optimal angles to generate solar electricity for your home, apartment or office.
Many who live in apartment buildings do not have a say on whether they can install solar panels, since their electricity is all connected to a main source. These smart solar window blinds come with interior wall brackets that are designed as a non-permanent, plug & play solution. They generate up to 100W-150W of renewable energy per 10-square-feet of a window, which is enough juice to power 30 LED light bulbs or three laptops. The surplus energy can either be stored in the battery itself or sold back to your electricity company as green energy via a two-way meter.
The idea to combine solar panels and blinds struck me when I saw sunflowers in the field turning to face the sun. With my invention, I wanted to claim that everyone is responsible for saving our planet,” said Yevgen Erik, CEO of SolarGaps.
