SolarGaps. The obvious solution for those who can’t (renters) or don’t want to install expensive rooftop solar panels.
SolarGaps is a home automation product that combines solar panels and blinds. It allows home or business owners to generate their own electricity and reduce their energy bills.
SolarGaps integrates with Google Home and Echo (for voice control), plus other devices like the Nest thermostat which are an essential part of your smart home.
SolarGaps are the world’s first solar smart blinds that use solar energy to generate electricity for your home or office. Unlike other smart blinds on the market, which generate only a small amount of electricity to power the control, SolarGaps produces enough electricity to power your devices, thus lowering your energy bill by up to 70%.
Once installed over a window – inside or outside your home – the smart blinds with built-in solar panels can instantly generate up to 100-150 W or 100-150 Wh in an hour per 10 sq. ft. (≈ 1 m2) of a window, which is enough to power 30 LED light bulbs or three MacBooks.
Energy surplus can either be stored in a battery for later use or sold to your electricity company as green energy – for a higher price – although to do this a two-way meter has to be installed by the utility.
